Teaching Case Competition
Goal of the competition
PMI has a strong commitment to advancing good project management curricula for both undergraduate and graduate programs. To that end, this competition aims to generate teachable cases and instructors’ manuals relevant to the management of temporary organizations with similar dimensions to permanent organizations for use in the ongoing improvement of project management programs.
Theme: Project Management—Creating Value for Stakeholders
The project manager has many roles, all focusing on the application of knowledge, skills and techniques to execute projects effectively and efficiently.

- Disaster Relief—Planned but Unexpected
