PMI-Pulse of the Profession

Pulse of the Profession® is PMI Global's annual global survey of project, program and portfolio managers charting the major trends in project management

How will you improve business results?

Organizations waste US$122 million for every US$1 billion invested due to poor project performance — a 12 percent increase over last year.

That’s the finding of the 2016 Pulse of the Profession®, our annual global survey of project, program and portfolio managers that charts the major trends in project management. Compared to 2015, more projects are failing, resulting in significant monetary loss. It’s time to strengthen the conversation on the benefits of project management and its value in producing better business outcomes.

With shrinking project outcomes, shifting global trends, and an uncertain economy, organizations must shift their thinking and embrace project management as a strategic competency that can reduce risk, cut costs and improve success rates.
