In this newsletter issue, we will focus on the broad PMI offer in terms of learning and certifications.
PMI learning framework addresses 3 main areas (Figure 1); the "Way of Working" with certifications and learning to support the "Technical Project Management" skill development. The "Change Management" areas to strengthen "Leadership" and soft skills, but also more "Contextual" resources to address the "Strategic & Business Management" knowledge. This area is designed to enable each organization and chapter member to succeed in their challenges, providing guidance and support enabling individuals to maintain and acquire the relevant skills, knowledge and capabilities needed through their career.

Project Management Certifications
PMI knows how important it is to set yourself apart, how much your career means to you. Your professional standing. Your credibility. Those capabilities can be the difference between getting the job, or not. It can raise your visibility, and highlight your competency like being the start of a whole new chapter in your professional story.
That’s why PMI spent decades perfecting our suite of eight certifications, which are and remain the global standard.

Agile Project Management Certifications
PMI Agile certifications span beyond any single approach, it is about tailoring your way of working to your unique situation, because true agility comes from freedom, not frameworks.
Each team has its own ways of working. Yet, you stick to a widely used framework or one of the numerous agile approaches out there. Sure, a framework can help, but the smartest path forward often borrows thinking from several. That’s where Disciplined Agile® can help.
