PMI, KPMG Collaborate as Digital Tech Plays Greater Role in Delivering Change

New York, NY

Emerging technologies drive new professional development needs for project managers

Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s leading association for the project management profession, and KPMG LLP today announced they are teaming up to develop programs to help the project management profession to embrace and leverage emerging and innovative technologies.

The collaboration between PMI and the U.S. audit, tax, and advisory firm will identify new opportunities to benefit PMI members and certification holders, as well as the project management profession at large. The primary focus of their work will be in the digital field, where blockchain, cloud computing, the internet of things, artificial intelligence, and other emerging technologies are transforming business processes.

“KPMG and PMI, working together on this initiative, will enable our two organizations to push the boundaries of project management in a world disrupted by digital and data,” said PMI President and CEO, Sunil Prashara. “Technology changes are placing new demands on professionals, and this collaboration will help them to adapt and thrive. Our shared goal in this effort is to ensure that our stakeholders around the world are equipped to harness technology and shape change in the work they do.”

“We have a well-established culture of lifelong learning and innovation combined with our experience in project management, change management and business transformation,” said KPMG Advisory Vice Chair Carl Carande. “Our collaboration with PMI provides an excellent opportunity to further advance project management programs in a way that prepares professionals, including KPMG’s, to better support clients’ transformation initiatives.” 

KPMG has supported PMI on its enterprise-wide digital transformation over the last 18 months to help the evolving needs of PMI members and certificate holders, who include Project Management Professionals (PMP), Portfolio Management Professionals (PfMP), PMI Agile Certified Practitioners (PMI-ACP) and Disciplined Agile practitioners, among others.
