April Lunch and Learn: Getting Real with the PMI Talent Triangle

Convenience, Access, and Community: “Getting Real” with the PMI Talent Triangle™
Projects you are leading often demand different combinations of technical “know-how”, leadership, strategic, and business management expertise from you and others. As of December 1,, 2015, PMI has formally recognized the importance of all these competencies with the PMI Talent Triangle. With this change, there are essential connections to the PMI CCR Program for new certifications and continuing education (PDU).

April Monthly Program: Critical Thining - An Essential for Effective Leadership

PMI Announces PMIAA Passed by the U.S. Senate 
The bill was sent to former President Barack Obama for signature and enactment. This legislation will make improvements to program and project management policy across the U.S. government. It is a landmark achievement for our profession, and it would not be possible without the support of members like you. PMI has been working since 2014 on the development and passage of the PMIAA with Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) and Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA). For more information on the passage of the PMIAA, read the official press release.
