World's Largest Association for Project Management Recognizes the Value of The Responsibility Process ®

Project Managers now earn 30 Educational PDUs for completing Immersion

The Responsibility Company is pleased to announce that its twenty-week program proving that Responsibility is not simply innate but can be taught is now earning Project Managers and other certified professionals a significant portion of the Professional Development Units or PDUs required to keep their certifications active with the globally prestigious Project Management Institute (PMI). A full 30 units may be earned to satisfy the Institute’s Leadership category requirements, underscoring the fundamental value of Responsibility among today’s leaders.

Responsibility Immersion offers online "no travel" training in the form of weekly modules that cover core aspects of the behavioral science framework known as The Responsibility Process ®. Customized assignments based on personal and professional goals and special live-only calls support applying the framework in an intimate remote learning experience led by international faculty. The next cohort begins Jan 29, 2020.

The creator of the program, Christopher Avery, is a PhD organizational consultant and author of The Responsibility Process: Unlocking Your Natural Ability to Live and Lead with Power as well as an earlier book unlocking secrets to effective teamwork. As Avery explains, "Posters of The Responsibility Process have been translated into 27 languages and counting. You can find them in headquarters, conference rooms, universities, homes, schools and offices throughout the world. After developing a path to mastery of this material, I wanted to make the entry points to my work more accessible, on a practical basis, to a broad range of professionals who are engaged in improving their careers and workplaces." With this intention, Responsibility Immersion was born.

Avery’s longtime colleague Traci Duez of Break Free Consulting successfully applied to PMI to win approval for the 30 Leadership PDUs for Responsibility Immersion. According to Duez, "After completing the Immersion, those who are currently certified by PMI may claim their PDUs by using the Course Identifier PMB-Responsibility. Go to https://ccrs.pmi.org/search and search for ‘responsibility,’ it pops right up!"
