For the last four years, PMIQ’s Vice President Maria Robins has participated in Australian charity Share the Dignity’s Christmas campaign ‘It’s in The Bag’. This campaign seeks to provide disadvantaged Australian women and teenagers with essential hygiene and sanitary products, packaged with a small gift and card in a handbag. These precious handbags are delivered by Share the Dignity’s volunteers to refugee centres, Centrelink offices and church charities just in time for Christmas.

Throughout 2017, PMI is studying, analyzing and reporting on aspects of agile transformation. The Pulse of the Profession® in-depth reports include a main report, Achieving Greater Agility, and a companion report, The Drivers of Agility. Our research supports that an organization’s agility level helps determine the success of its outcomes, including the value projects deliver. And despite the heightened attention to agile approaches in recent years, organizations realize it’s only one indicator of speed and flexibility.
A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Sixth Edition is the latest version of this leading global resource for project managers.
The PMBOK® Guide is developed by active practitioners and subject matter experts, then reviewed by the project management community before it is released, to assure it always reflects the current state of the profession.
In response to market research and customer input, information on agile will now be included.
Demand over the next 10 years for project managers is growing faster than demand for workers in other occupations. Organizations, however, face risks from this talent gap.
The latest PMI-commissioned talent gap analysis by Anderson Economic Group (AEG) points to outstanding opportunities in jobs and career growth for project managers within the 11 countries studied. Through 2027, the project management-oriented labor force in seven project-oriented sectors is expected to grow by 33 percent, or nearly 22 million new jobs.
By 2027, employers will need nearly 88 million individuals in project management-oriented roles. China and India will represent more than 75 percent of the total project management-oriented employment.
This report shows that project managers are important contributors to productivity. Talent shortages in the profession can potentially create risks of nearly US$208 billion in GDP over the 10-year period in the 11 countries examined.
