Project Management Institute

PMI Talent Triangle­ ®

While technical skills are core to project and program management, PMI research tells us they’re not enough in today’s increasingly complex and competitive global marketplace.

Companies are seeking added skills in leadership and business intelligence — competencies that can support longer-range strategic objectives that contribute to the bottom line.

PMI Talent Triangle

The PMI Talent Triangle®

The ideal skill set — the PMI Talent Triangle® — is a combination of technical, leadership, and strategic and business management expertise — and now, digital skills.

What this means to project and program talent — what this means to you — is a focus on developing the additional skills you need to meet the evolving demands on your profession. But in doing so, it also means new opportunities to elevate your value as a strategic partner in business success.

In our professional reality of technological disruption, organizations need project leaders with an ability to learn and keep pace with technology. As shown in the graphic, we have added a new digital overlay to the PMI Talent Triangle to emphasize how digital transformation is impacting every aspect of our work.
