We are a supportive community for passionate project delivery leaders looking to elevate the value of responsible project management in a digital world. We explore the leading practices that make projects happen, and we help each other when we get stuck.
We’re writing the playbook on digital project management. Get together with peers and experts to co-create solutions to specific digital project management challenges that will help prepare the next generation of digital PMs.
The heart and soul of our community is our DPM Experts team — a hand picked group of seasoned industry professionals devoted to helping delivery professionals at all levels accelerate into their careers. Each member of our Experts team brings a different perspective to cover the gamut of digital delivery in agencies, consultancies, enterprises, and startups.
Our Experts are committed to speaking from their experience, sharing the latest best practices from their industries, and upholding the importance of responsible delivery leadership in a digital world.
The more you put into it, the more benefit you receive. Membership would be beneficial for someone looking to expand not only their hard skills as a PM but also their soft skills, which is obviously extremely important as a PM.

Keep your team aligned and contributing at the leading edge of their craft through rewarding professional development program.
DPM Membership is not a simple badge, certification program, or professional association to fill up your bio—it’s an interactive community that delivers a curated supply of highly applicable resources and discussions every month.
You’ll find resources like Workshops, eBooks, and Templates to apply to your projects, and you’ll also get the chance to participate in regular activities like Live Solutioning and Masterminds with a network of digital project folks who are collaborating, sharing best practice, and mentoring one another.
The main focus of DPM Membership is the community—we provide a platform for Members to own the space and the discussion around digital project management. It is a dynamic, evolving space where you are empowered to give shape to the group and to the future of DPM.
DPM Membership is a project management supergroup — it connects project managers with their peers and digital delivery experts to set the new standard for how digital project management should be done. Our members solve challenges, innovate and drive change in the project management field while sharing knowledge and insights with each other along the way.
In contrast, the DPM School is built around a guided 7-week course that teaches students how to do digital project management. Each week features a video lesson and a panel discussion. The course also includes graded assignments, group discussions, weekly office hours, and opportunities for one-on-one coaching.
Check out our article about the differences and benefits of DPM Membership and the DPM School to learn more.

No, but truly, everyone on our team gets really freakin’ excited every time someone becomes part of this community.
In all seriousness, when you become a Member, the first thing that happens is you’ll receive a series of onboarding emails to help you start taking advantage of Membership resources at a do-able pace.
You’ll start by learning about Membership and creating a Member profile on the site, with access to the Members Dashboard. The Members Dashboard is where you’ll find all of your resources in one place: the Forum, monthly Workshops (live and on-demand), Live Solutioning sessions, Ask Me Anything sessions, Mastermind groups, eBooks, and an ever-growing Template Library with samples, checklists, and templates for your projects.
You’ll be introduced to these resources little by little so you have time to get comfortable with the new space.

Our group rates are 30% off for up to 5 members, 35% off for up to 10 members, and 40% off for up to 15 members. To sign up a group click here.
You can be as involved as you like. There’s no firm requirement for participation, but we encourage you to dig in and get your hands dirty!
Every month, you’ll:
Receive the Members Monthly newsletter so you can plan ahead to take advantage of upcoming events, training, and more.
Have the opportunity to attend a live Workshop (different topic every month)
Get access to new downloads, samples, checklist, and any other handouts from the Workshop (for Career Builder members)
Have the chance to attend a Live Solutioning session and get mentored by DPM experts

And beyond the scheduled monthly events, you’ll have access anytime to:
The online Forum —make this space your own!
Peer mentorship in Masterminds (for Career Builder members)
Our library of templates, filled-in samples, checklists, and more
downloadable ebooks (for Career Builder members)
On-demand videos of previous Workshops you can watch anytime
New templates and ebooks are always in the works and are being added and upgraded on an ongoing basis. Usually a handful of new ones each month.
Here’s a list of some of our most popular templates that you can download and edit anytime. They are mostly .docx and xlsx files, with a few .mpp and .xml files as well. You’ll also get access to filled-out samples that accompany the customizable templates—these examples can help you understand what to write in each section when you use them in your projects.
Agency Briefing Template Guide
Statement of Work (SoW)
Project Functional Requirements

We add a couple of items to the Template Library each month—and we encourage you to get in touch if you’ve got a template, checklist, or sample you think other DPMs would find useful. We can help polish it up and get it out there for other people to use.
Workshops are online, expert-led, and interactive video conferences that last about an hour. Every month, a DPM expert from the community focuses on a specific topic and breaks it down using examples, with a Q&A at the end.
Workshops include detailed how-to that teaches you how to do a specific part of the DPM role. For example:
Requirements Gathering & Documentation
How To Build A More Data-Driven Agency
How To Lead An Effective Project Kickoff
Each Workshop includes handouts (for Career Builder members) you can use to quickly apply the lessons to your real projects.
When joining the Workshops live, you’ll be able to ask questions and get answers. If you miss it, no problem! You can always watch the recording on-demand (within 30 days for Community Members and any time for Career Builder members). Feel free to bring your questions from the Workshop to Live Solutionings sessions afterwards as well.
All resources for Members are here on The Digital Project Manager site. You’ll find them in Members Dashboard.
You can pay with any major credit card (Mastercard Visa, Discover, AmEx).
No problem. You can cancel your membership at any time. When you cancel your subscription, you’ll retain access to your Membership content until the end of your billing cycle.
So, if you cancel mid-year, your Membership won’t expire until the end of the year within which you subscribed.
Given that this is a subscription that delivers ongoing value, it is our general policy to not offer partial or full refunds for payments.
Please be aware, if you decide to cancel your Membership midway through the term, your Membership will remain active until your billing cycle comes to an end (this means it doesn’t expire until the end of your one-year billing period).
