PMI and airfocus Help PMs Create Clear Roadmaps and Strategically Prioritize Projects

Philadelphia, PA

The world's leading association for the project management profession, Project Management Institute (PMI), and airfocus, a leading project management software company, have announced a long-term partnership to help project teams increase true business agility. PMI® members can now gain free trial access to the airfocus™ prioritization and roadmapping tool, and may access the tool seamlessly via PMI single sign-on (SSO). PMI members also get exclusive PMI and airfocus content, including PMI-approved templates, allowing them to put their learnings into practice.

airfocus is a software solution built to help product managers, project managers, and marketing strategists make the right decisions, whether they are in the office, at home, or on-the-go. With airfocus, project managers confidently decide what to do next using built-in data-informed prioritization scorings. airfocus also helps users build and share project roadmaps to align and collaborate with teams to make important decisions on strategic directions, and execute successful projects. 

“We are thrilled to partner with PMI who shares the same vision with airfocus, which is to help project management teams focus on the things that can elevate their businesses,” said Malte Scholz, co-founder & CEO of airfocus. “I think we've all seen too often how a lack of strategic planning literally has killed companies. Allocating limited resources across projects and then communicating roadmaps are omnipresent challenges for most organizations, regardless of size or industry. Issues such as a lack of methodology, silo-thinking, reliance on gut-instinct, and ineffective tools lead to poor decision-making. I strongly believe PMI's and airfocus' expertises in project management and software can help change that and give everyone a clear overview of what is important and what is not.”

“To succeed in project management, teams require a single source of truth,” said Dave Garrett, chief strategy & growth officer at PMI. “Using airfocus helps project managers juggle team and task management, while ensuring alignment on the big picture strategy. It’s another powerful tool our members now have at their fingertips.” 

Product, project, and portfolio managers who use Trello® software to create and maintain roadmaps, will find airfocus’ two-way Trello integration and power-up extremely valuable. Team members can continue managing their tasks in Trello while business leaders use airfocus to prioritize high-level projects, features, and initiatives and share these strategic decisions via priority scores on Trello cards. airfocus also integrates with a variety of other widely used task management systems, such as Jira®, Asana®, and Microsoft® Planner, and is equipped with ready-to-use templates for all kinds of planning use cases.
