Committee

The mission of the Toolbox Committee is to research, create, share, promote and educate the PMCoP on tools that can assist in project planning, management, execution and evaluation that will help the project management community grow in their skill set, improve the quality of project management and ultimately deliver better projects and value.

Toolbox Committee

The Toolbox Committee will focus on increasing the quality and effectiveness of project management in the healthcare industry through the gathering and sharing of project planning tools, which can include: templates, applications, reports, samples from case studies, tools training, models and other mechanisms. These are in support of all PMI process areas and knowledge groups. 

The committee is focused on:

  1. Exploring and reviewing/vetting available tools, considering cost, ease of use, application, and security.
  2. Sharing vetted tools in the PMCoP forum.
  3. Working with the Programming Committee to facilitate sharing of templates, sample tools, sample reports, etc. for healthcare projects from those in the project and program management fields.
  4. Gathering feedback from the Community on shared tools to enable recommendations for use.
