PMI 2019 Annual Report

2019 was a landmark year for PMI as we marked our 50th anniversary as an organization.

By any measure, it was a year marked by change and progress for PMI. Among other milestones, we welcomed our new President & CEO; celebrated 5 decades of advancing the profession of project management; launched an energetic and forward-looking new brand; implemented a powerful new regional model; acquired Disciplined Agile and Flex to leapfrog our leadership position in the agile space; launched a range of exciting new products and platforms to support the global PMI community; and accelerated our transformation journey, which prepared us to face the unprecedented challenges of 2020.

Look back on the year’s achievements—and how they have positioned us for the future—in the 2019 PMI Annual Report, now available at www.pmi.org/annual-report-2019
