Linda Vella, BA, PMP, PMI Fellow
PMI Fellow, 2017
Linda Vella has demonstrated a disciplined approach in strategic change management at a time of unprecedented global growth in PMI membership, products, services, and Board maturity. She advanced PMI’s strategic decision-making process through implementation of scenario planning, still being used today, which led to several important decisions over the past 10 years. Ms. Vella also led the Board in identifying the criteria and abilities of future Board members.
She has spent more than 25 years working in project management for global organizations and has made a significant contribution to the profession. She has defined corporate standards and assisted companies in determining which projects would contribute to achieving their strategic goals. In addition, she has been able to give back to the project management community by volunteering for PMI for more than 20 years and coaching new project managers to help them achieve their goals.
