As more and more worldwide organizations realize the strategic advantage that project-based initiatives provide in responding to today's highly competitive global marketplace, executives are embracing, with increasing vigor, the discipline of project management as a core component within their organization. This article examines the factors driving PMI's global expansion and the institute's response to worldwide expansion of the project management profession, a response which includes opening regional service centers in Asia (Singapore and Beijing, China). This article additionally details the factors driving the recent rise in PMI's membership--its non-United States-based membership has quadrupled over the past four years--and discusses PMI's global role as that of an advocate for the project management profession. Accompanying this article are three sidebars: the first discusses PMI's regional service centers; the second offers a projection of PMI's development over the next 55 years; and the last looks at the ideas upon which PMI is founded.
