  • Presenter: Introduce yourself and acknowledge hosts. Project Management, in various forms, has been been in existence for quite some time, but really gained momentum in the last 50 years. The growing magnitude of projects in the latter half of the 20th century created a need for a disciplined approach to the way we work on projects. In its report on Post War National Development, approved for publication in 1944, the Institution of Civil Engineers of Great Britain recognized the need for a systematic approach to planning public works projects when it pointed out rather quaintly that: “ In order to carry out work efficiently, it is essential that a scheme of operations be first decided by those directly responsible for the execution…” The report continued, “With such planning, the work can be broken down into a series of operations and an orderly sequence (or program) of execution evolved...Without a systems approach the execution can only be HAPHAZARD and DISORDERLY...”
  • Those trends have created others. Organizations are promoting the team environment. Interpersonal skills are being emphasized. Projects are now multinational, thus creating a need to understand cultural differences, and organizations are more dependent on technology. A disciplined project management program can provide your organization with the necessary methods, processes and skills to keep up with these trends as the marketplace evolves. Project management as a discipline got its start in the construction and engineering fields. It has now found its way into all sorts of organizations from sales and marketing companies to the pharmaceutical industry. The definition of project management, no matter what industry it is practiced, remains uniform. Project Management, according to the PMI Standard, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge – 2000 Edition, or PMBOK ® Guide , is the “application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities in order to meet or exceed stakeholder needs and expectations from a project.”
  • PMI has a truly global membership, with representation in over 140 countries. Currently there are over 300 organizations participating in our Group Billing Plan. We have almost 260 chartered and potential Chapters working toward their charters. These Chapters act as “franchises” of PMI, providing education and networking opportunities to their members located in their regions or local areas. Our Specific Interest Groups, or SIGs, are designed to bring project management practitioners in similar industries or with similar interests together in a virtual environment. There are currently 31 SIGs and 5 potential SIGs. Colleges deal with specific knowledge areas in project management. The first PMI College was formed in March 1999 when the Performance Management Association officially joined PMI to become the Institute’s College of Performance Management. The College is devoted to the earned value management area of project management. The second College is the PMI College of Scheduling, formed in 2002.
  • So what is the purpose of this professional organization that is generating so much interest? Primary efforts are focused on the vital areas of: Project Management Research Project Management Standards Project Management Certification Project Management Professional Development Programs Project Management Publications Let’s briefly highlight PMI’s contributions in each of these areas.
  • As the world’s leading not-for-profit global professional association for project management knowledge, information and professionalism, PMI has made great strides in advancing the profession. In the vital areas of: Project Management Research Project Management Standards Project Management Certification Project Management Professional Development and Project Management Publications PMI has led the way. With a focus on professionalism, the ultimate goal for all of us, is improved project performance.
  • I also encourage all of you to visit the PMI Web site at www.pmi.org to learn more about this organization or project management in general. Presenter: Thank hosts and guests and field any questions. (Note: All statistics presented in this document are as of June 2003.)
