Project Management Institute

Global Executive Council

Only one third of an organization’s important projects deliver the expected results. The remaining projects unfortunately miss their strategic objectives, creating enormous financial costs for the companies involved.

The impacts of these failures highlight the numerous opportunities for performance improvement, and it becomes clear that a more widespread, effective use of project management is needed. The path forward starts with PMI’s Global Executive Council.

Work and Criteria

PMI and members of the influential Council believe that project, program and portfolio management deliver a strategic advantage that helps organizations do more with less, meet their strategic objectives and avoid those costly project failures.
