Project Management Institute (PMI)
The Project Management Institute (PMI) is the world’s leading not-for-profit membership association for the project management profession, with more than half a million members and credential holders in 185 countries. Our worldwide advocacy for project management is supported by our globally-recognized standards and credentials, our extensive research program, and our professional development opportunities.
PMI offers five certifications that recognize knowledge and competency, including the Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential held by more than 370,000 practitioners worldwide. Salaries and career opportunities for credential holders show that employers recognize the value delivered by trained practitioners.
PMI’s 12 standards for project, program and portfolio management are the most widely recognized standards in the profession – and increasingly the model for project management in business and government.
Chapters and Communities of Practice
Most of PMI’s activity takes place in more than 250 geographic chapters and 30 industry- or interest-based communities of practice. These communities, open to PMI members and led by volunteers, support the knowledge sharing and professional networking that are central to our mission.
