PfMP Classroom Training

Why PfMP

About PfMP

PMI’s Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP) credential recognizes the advanced experience and skill of portfolio managers. The PfMP demonstrates your proven ability in the coordinated management of one or more portfolios to achieve organizational objectives.

PfMP credential holders are responsible for the execution of the portfolio management process, communication around portfolio progress, and recommendations for action. Where project and program managers are responsible for “doing work right,” this is an ideal credential if you are responsible for ensuring your organization is “doing the right work.”

Certification Benefits

  • Competitive differentiator. There are about 15 million project managers in the world today, and this is likely to grow to 20 or 25 million by Year 2020. If you are an experienced project professional already managing project investment decisions and want to stand out from the crowd, then PfMP should be in the forefront of your consideration.
  • Retrenchment. Yes, retrenchment! Careers are rarely steady inclines toward greater responsibilities and titles and compensation. If you are like average Americans, then chance are you will change careers 7 maybe 10 times in your lifetime, and some of them are not by choice. So why PfMP? With certifications like PfMP, you increase your resiliency so the fall is not as steep and your ability to climb is much enhanced.
  • Growth. For up and coming project manager, the shift from tactical execution to higher order strategic responsibilities of managing project investments and resource allocation are a part of natural evolution. Portfolio management, at least for now, is at the top of the project management trinity. With real and substantiated experience, the certification would further propel project management professionals with the credential to tackle the next level of challenges.
  • Globally recognized and most respected Portfolio Management Certification.
  • Establish your competency and legitimacy in Portfolio Management.
