Through global advocacy, collaboration, education and research, we work to prepare more than three million professionals around the world for the Project Economy: the coming economy in which work, and individuals, are organized around projects.


Advance careers, improve organizational success and further mature the project management profession through globally-recognized standards, certifications, communities, resources, tools, academic research, publications, professional development courses and networking opportunities.


PMI stands for the Project Management Institute. Its a leading not-for-profit professional membership association for the project management profession. The aim of the association is to provide tools, network, and best practices to those who seek help to successfully manage their projects and portfolios. It started in 1969, and currently,  the resources and research programs by PMI are helping more than 2.9 million professionals working in almost every country to excel in their respective profession.

In addition to this, PMI is also the organization that oversees the documentation of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) Guide. PMBOK Guide is basically a book that contains all the standards and guidelines established by the Project Management Institute for successful project management. In fact, project management professionals across the world are relying on the Project Management Institute’s standards and guidelines to boost business success and manage different types of projects during their project management career.
