The 2017 PMI Strategic Plan Is Approved

In August, the 2017 PMI Board of Directors approved a new strategic plan for PMI. This plan highlights decisions the Board has already made as part of our strategy refresh. It will serve as our foundation for reinventing PMI as the professional association of the future, sometimes referred to as PMI 2.0. The 2017 PMI Strategic Plan provides the vision that will guide us there—and beyond.

We instituted the “Playing to Win” framework to guide our strategic planning process, capture decisions and communicate our progress along the choice cascade. Our new strategic direction is built on three pillars that some of you may be familiar with from Leadership Institute Meetings and digital communications earlier this year: strategic focus, customer centricity and organizational agility.

Using these pillars and the “Playing to Win” strategy framework, PMI intends to redefine what it means to be a global professional association of the future, representing and advocating for people who practice project, program and portfolio management. Learn how we will reach PMI 2.0 by reading the 2017 PMI Strategic Plan in its entirety at www.pmi.org/strategicplan.

Go In-Depth With the Latest Edition of the PMBOK® Guide

In September 2017, we released A Guide to The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Sixth Edition. In this presentation, Cyndy Dionisio, the project chair of the Sixth Edition Core Committee, explains the updates, new processes, terminology and subjects in the Sixth Edition. She also talks about tailoring and agile practices.

PMI 2017 Thought Leadership Series: Achieving Greater Agility

As organizations face heightened competition and ongoing disruption from new technology, market shifts and social change, they are forced to set the bar higher in everything they do. Greater agility—the capability to quickly sense and adapt to external and internal changes to deliver relevant results in a productive and cost-effective manner—is helping them reach their goals.

Throughout 2017 we have been studying, analyzing and reporting on all aspects of agile transformation. Our reports address how people, process and culture impact the quest for greater agility and innovation. The 2017 Thought Leadership Series, done in collaboration with Forbes Insights and KPMG, presents three different reports and a number of companion pieces. To access the full series, visit PMI.org.
