PMI® : Project Management Institute

Founded in 1969, the Project Management Institute PMI® (www.pmi.org) is the most recognized authority and association in the domains of Project, Program and Portfolio Management.

A non Profit professionnal organisation

At PMI, the primary goal is to advance the practice, science and profession of Project Management throughout the world in a conscientious and proactive manner so that organizations everywhere will embrace, value and utilize Project Management and then attribute their successes to it.

PMI has over 400,000 members and credential holders worldwide.

The PMI approach

Their collaborative approach is founded on the following concepts.

  • PMI Membership encourages project professionals to adopt global and local best practices, to build relationships and share resources.
  • Global standards are crucial to the profession of Project Management. Standards ensure a basic Project Management framework is applied consistently worldwide for every kind of project, in any sector of industry. These standards develop a common language which in turn facilitates sharing of information. PMI® has developed 12 global standards, of which the most well known is « A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge » (PMBOK® Guide).
  • PMI’s credentials help business professionals start, build or advance their careers in Project Management. PMI® has defined 5 credentials: PMP®, CAPM®, PgMP®, PMI-SP®, PMI-RMP® adapted to different project populations and needs.

Network of Registered Education Providers (R.E.P.s)

  • A network of Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) composed of training organizations. The registration process ensures that the educational offerings of these providers are assessed by the PMI. For nearly 10 years, PMGS has been a Global Registered Provider of the PMI® (#1326)
  • PMI is the only Project Management association with a dedicated research program. Since 1997, PMI has invested US $14 million in project management research and has been directly involved in the release of more than 350 publications.

PMI® has developed the Global Accreditation Centre for Project Management Education Programs (GAC). The GAC is accrediting university programs in Project Management at the graduate and undergraduate levels worldwide.
