Project Management and PMI
Project management today is used globally by multi-billion-dollar corporations, governments and small non-profit organizations alike. Project management leadership is a highly sought-after skill as global competition demands that new projects and business development be completed on time and within budget. Professionals working in project management will drive the successful development of exciting new business enterprises in the21st century.
Since its founding in 1969, Project Management Institute (PMI®) has grown to be the organization of choice for project management professionals. With over 200,000 members world-wide, PMI is the leading not-for-profit professional association in the area of project management. PMI establishes professional standards, provides seminars, educational programs and professional certification.
PMI members can join a variety of component organizations including chapters, Specific Interest Groups (SIGs) and Colleges. Chapters are geographic-based; SIGs are industry- or interest-based, and Colleges center on a PMBOK Guide knowledge area. PMI’s components offer a broad range of services including newsletters, educational programs, networking events, case studies, PMP Certification preparation courses, and much more.
