The Unmet Needs Committee
When asked what they had done to help, one of the interviewees said they had formed an 'Unmet Needs Committee'.
I had not heard of this term before, but thought it was pretty clever. It turns out, an unmet needs committee is a standard procedure in the case of disaster. This committee is generally used as a last resort, where other groups or funding cannot help with the situation.
This got me to thinking - are my projects always on the lookout for unmet needs? Sometimes it is easy to overlook or ignore unmet needs - certainly not a PMI best practice!
On a final note, I would like to extend best wishes to those who escaped the Fort McMurray fire.
