Studies have consistently shown organizations today fail to implement their strategies. The failure rate differs among studies, but even the most optimistic puts the failure rate at 50% with some studies showing as high as 90%. One of the primary reasons for strategy implementation failure is poor project investment selection and poor organizational focus. This results in significant waste and ineffective use of precious assets and resources. Confronting the issue of investment selection and prioritization as well as limited resources, organizations must work “smarter” by focusing their limited resources on the most important and highest priority endeavors. PMI™ created the PfMP® credential mainly focused on addressing this major gap in organizational project management. Portfolio management is commonly viewed as the apex of the project management professional ladder. Portfolio managers often plan mid-to upper level leadership roles, working with business executives to influence and determine project investments. The PfMP® certification provides the necessary credential and credibility to be at the same table with senior executives. PMI™ and PfMP® are registered marks of Project Management Institute, Inc.
This program is designed for Portfolio Managers, Senior Project Managers, Senior Team Leaders, Program Managers, Software Managers, and Senior Technical leaders who want to develop or improve their Portfolio Management knowledge and skills based on global standards and best practices.
