Project Management


What is

Welcome to the Project Management Institute’s online community!

You are responsible for a project that your organization views as strategically important. Someone may have over-committed you—and is now asking you why you aren’t on time, within scope or under budget. You and your staff are working together to find solutions--but within your organization, there isn’t always someone you can lean on for answers.
