Thank you and farewall to the fact files.
I can't wait to see what's comming.

While the numbers have alwats been interesting for me, it's presented without context.

Thank you Luis for your analysis. That brings valuable insight.

The number of PMI members appears to be exactly the same as the month before, which seems unlikely.

Out with the old, in with the new. Although it is sad to say goodbye, it is also exciting to see what comes next!

Danny Seow Tokyo, Japan
These are very useful pieces of information. I hope they will continue, and I look forward to new changes.

Kevin Martin Director, Senior Experience Owner| USAA San Antonio, Tx, USA
Respectfully this is a huge mistake and disservice to the community-at-large.

Please share the foundational pivot, in a process that has been valued by PMI members, prospective members, and business professionals, world-wide for more than 30 years?

It is a visible measure of perceived value and success, individual outcomes and a valuable factual resource for a huge dispersed PMI marketing stakeholders world-wide.

Why would you take a key marketing measure away from millions? Where can we get the data, on demand?

Publishing it with a set frequency, will prevent thousands of future calls to your contact center staff to obtain the same data.

Just asking for more insight into PMI leadership “thinking.”

Oras Albareh Project Manager Consultant at the Project Management Office (PMO)| SCDPPPS Columbia, SC, USA
I wish to know how many people possess all these 8 certificates. In the USA and the world.
