Non-Profit vs. For-Profit Project Management
Thursday, October 11, 2018
5400 South 60th Street
Greendale, WI 53129
Please join us for breakfast as panelists discuss the differences between non-and-for-profit project management. They will explore the challenges non-profits face when working to meet the hard objectives of a project, while also fulfilling the mission-driven needs of the organization and the constituencies they serve. Additionally, discussion around the funding challenges faced by non-and-for-profits will occur. They will also compare and contrast the different structures of two types of organizations.
Some additional topics may include how to plan for and manage resources in the two different scenarios; working with volunteers versus paid staff; relying on donations and grants or procuring internal funding; and dealing with stakeholders, boards of directors, grantors and those you serve with your organization. Also, panelists will talk about the differences of managing a project in a mission-driven organization rather than one driven by bottom line results and ROI.
Becky is a senior project manager with Johnson Financial Group. While currently managing projects in the for-profit sector, her first project management experience was in the non-profit sector leading projects for national health organizations. Managing projects in non-profit organizations taught Becky the importance of leading through influence as her teams were volunteer-based rather than paid staff. She also faced the challenge of having project budgets dictated by the funding raised. She understands both sides (for-profit and non-profit) of the equation and knows the principles of project management can be applied successfully in both situations. Becky also has experience leading in a non-profit setting and is currently serving our PMI chapter as past president of our Board of Directors.
