Vital and forward thinking - focused on the needs of project management professionals worldwide; that's the Project Management Institute of today. We've long been acknowledged as a pioneer in the field and now our membership represents a truly global community with more than 450,000 professionals, representing 105 countries. PMI professionals come from virtually every major industry including, aerospace, automotive, business management, construction, engineering, financial services, information technology, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, and telecommunications.
PMI stands as a global leader in the development of standards for the practice of project management. Our premiere standards document, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), is recognized throughout the world as a standard for managing projects in today's market place. The PMBOK® Guide is approved as an American National Standard (ANS) by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). We are committed to the continuous improvement and expansion of the PMBOK® Guide, as well as the development of additional standards.
PMI membership opens up a world of opportunity - sharing ideas and experiences, accessing industry information, attending seminars and workshops on leading-edge topics, increasing your professional exposure through networking and project participation, and gaining leadership experience.
