Project Management Institute (PMI)

About the Project Management Institute

  • The project management profession is expected to grow with the creation of 15.7 million new project management jobs worldwide by 2020 (from PMI’s 2013 Annual Report).
  • PMI® is one of the world’s largest not-for-profit membership associations for the project management profession. Its professional resources and research empower more than 700,000 members, credential holders and volunteers in nearly every country in the world to enhance their careers, improve their organizations’ success and further mature the profession.
  • PMI®’s worldwide advocacy for project management is reinforced by their globally recognized standards and certification program, extensive academic and market research programs, chapters and communities of practice, and professional development opportunities.

The PMP is the gold standard of project management certification. Recognized and demanded by organizations worldwide, the PMP validates your competence to perform in the role of a project manager, leading and directing projects and teams.

Business analysis has become a competency of critical importance to project management. Earning the PMI Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)® will develop your business analysis skills and signal your professionalism in this in-demand area. Organizations expect an increase in demand for PMI-PBA’s to integration of requirements management and business analysis with project management.

The CAPM® is an asset that will distinguish you in the job market and enhance your credibility and effectiveness working on — or with — project teams. Because the CAPM recognizes your knowledge of the profession’s preeminent global standard, the PMBOK Guide ® you’ll stand out to employers and be poised to move ahead.

The PMI-ACP® is PMI’s fastest growing designation. If you’re experienced using agile approaches, have good collaboration skills, embrace complexity and thrive on rapid response times, then your talents are in demand. The PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) ® formally recognizes your knowledge of agile principles and your skill with agile techniques.
