Updates from PMI

This section contains news and other updates from PMI that will be of interest to our members.

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.


The PMI Talent Triangle™

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

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.

Why Certification Exams Change

Exam updates help keep our certifications current with the evolving state of the project management profession. We update them in two circumstances: 

  • When we release a new exam content outline, which details the critical tasks and knowledge areas tested in the exam. 
  • When there is an update to an existing standard, or when a new PMI publication is added to a certification’s reference list. This ensures the questions align with any new terminology.

In either case, the questions are written by active project management professionals and reflect the latest information and best practices in our global profession.
