J. Gordon Davis, PhD
PMI Fellow, 1983
Dr. Davis is member number four in PMI and is a former Vice President of the Institute. He effectively served PMI in many capacities, including the coordination of the Institute's early-on academic activities, and has received nearly every honor that the organization bestows, including the designation of PMI Fellow. His interest in helping to create PMI was to provide a forum for discussing the emerging concepts and practices in the field, and to identify a profession of project management that was not otherwise perceived as a profession. Dr. Davis continues to challenge PMI members and leaders to build professionalism in project management and to focus on the multi-disciplinary aspects of project management that play such a vital role in bringing projects of all sizes to a successful conclusion.
