PMI’s current market leadership and value to the profession are tied to the quality and relevance of our certification products. Furthermore, to ethically grow PMI’s leadership, the certification product portfolio revenue is critical for funding our mission both now and in the near future. In 2018, efforts toward maintaining market relevance could be seen in (but not limited to) the following:

  • Updated five exams (CAPM®, PMI-ACP®, PMI-PBA®, PMP®, PgMP®)
  • Expanding the available languages for candidates taking the PMI-ACP exam
  • Looking to the future of the profession and the certifications practitioners will need, this year we launched the first phase of a market research global practice effort, comprehensively looking at the profession from a cross-geographic, cross-industry, cross-role lens. This effort will enable PMI to define future certification structure and content.
