Program Management Professional (PgMP®)
One of PMI's most robust credentials, the PgMP has been developed for professionals who manage multiple related projects that are aligned with an organization's strategy.
Those with the PgMP credential have successfully completed a rigorous multi-stage knowledge, skills and experience assessment process. A PgMP credential demonstrates:
- A level of responsibility under minimal supervision for the coordinated management of multiple related projects directed toward strategic business and organizational objectives. These programs contain complex activities that may span functions, organizations, geographic regions and cultures.
- An ability to define and initiate projects and assign project managers to manage cost, schedule and performance of component projects while working to ensure the ultimate success and acceptance of the program. Program managers are responsible for determining and coordinating the sharing of resources among their constituent projects to the overall benefit of the program.
- A possession of knowledge and skills needed to be effective in both the project and business or government environment and to make decisions that accomplish strategic objectives. They should have advanced skills in finance, cross-cultural awareness, leadership, communication, influence, negotiation and conflict resolution.
