Today’s post is direct. Today, we are not sharing knowledge about a relevant project management topic. Instead, we want to help in making project management a critical domain for ALL industries. Consequently, we are working to set project management skills essential for business success. We are learning to adjust in these challenging times with VUCA, COVID-19, and the pandemic-triggered recessions. We are trying to establish a New Normal or maybe a better future. Whether you work from home or work from anywhere, technology is vital. Further, projects are a must to grow the global economies, hence PMI usage of the term Project Economy. In summary, we believe project management is critical for success as we transition and transform. Today’s post is about the Uruk Platform, a project management software, cloud-based solution.
What is SUKAD Corp doing about this?
For a startup, we are doing what we could.
- We have opened our online courses to the project management community for free. All of our courses are open, and many have benefited from this offering.
- We are also sharing knowledge by participating in virtual events, like PM360, recently in Malaysia and Morocco before that.
- Bookboon.com has been publishing numerous e-books on project management by yours truly.
- Further, soon we will be launching two programs, where we offer our time to professionals, managers, and even executives that want to understand how project management is strategically important. Stay tuned.
We are building the engine of applied project management, The Uruk Platform.
The Uruk Platform: The Engine of Applied Project Management
We have published many articles in the past about the Uruk Platform. We have also established a LinkedIn Page, which you can follow to stay up to date with our progress. Further, we have a section the SUKAD Technology Solutions and Uruk on our website.
What have we done on the Uruk Platform, so far?
A group of friends and colleagues and I have worked together to raise funds. We had raised enough funds to register SUKAD Corp in the United States. Also, we finalized the vision and design for the Uruk Platform; we had published a few posts on the Uruk Platform page on LinkedIn. Further, we started architectural design and development. However, we had a major setback with our CTO’s loss, our software guru, who died recently. As a resilient startup, we had to redesign our strategy, pivot and developed our path forward strategy, which we have put into implementation.
We, Mounir and SUKAD co-founders believe that organizations today NEED the engine of applied project management. We know that the Uruk Platform can and will enable organizations to Lead Projects: Concept to Success!
The key remaining question is: what do we need today?
We need you and for more than one reason.
First, we want believers and those that thrive on making a difference in our world and communities. We are eager to work with champions who believe in the strategic value of project management. In other words, we need the pioneering spirits that can help us help organizations elevate project management to becoming a formally recognized function. Consequently, help organizations Lead Projects: Concept to Success. YOU are our project management ambassadors.
Second, we need to raise funds to continue the development and outreach effort. The US Laws do not allow us to sell shares, but they allow us to work through equity-based crowdfunding platforms, that are open to the public. Open for the ambassadors and everyone in the investment or the project management community.
Here is the role of WeFunder. WeFunder is the largest equity-based crowdfunding platform. To protect YOU and the public, WeFunder has strict rules about who would they allow on their platform to raise funds in return for equity (ownership in SUKAD Corp). The first requirement is a detailed application, which we have done. However, the second requirement is to get YOU to vouch for us and contribute $100 or more. We need to reach $10,000 before they consider us to proceed to the next step.
