Caution Icon

As a candidate for the PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP), you know there is much more to project scheduling than just the use of tools and technology to build a schedule for your team. 

Schedules are a fundamental element of project management yet half of all projects — 50 percent — are not completed within the initially scheduled timeframe according to our 2015 Pulse of the Profession® report.

Projects and teams today are increasingly global and virtual, and project schedules are key to managing activities, resources, dependencies and ultimately, project outcomes. The PMI-SP will recognize your knowledge and skill to drive the improved management of project schedules.
