Your Career

The Project Management Institute (PMI) stated that project-based industries could be at risk due to the lack of skilled project managers, based on a studies conducted by The Anderson Economic Group (AEG). In 2017, a significant talent gap was revealed that further presents opportunities for employment and career advancement in this area.  In a PMI-commissioned study entitled, Project Management Job Growth and Talent Gap 2017-2027, AEG looked at 11 countries and found that by 2027, the project management labour force in key sectors was expected to grow by 33% (22 million new jobs) and consequently, employers would need some 88 million employees in project management-oriented roles.  Recently the PMI has highlighted, through a similar study, industry’s focus on building digital skills and the technology quotient as important talent development priorities to complement technical, leadership and strategic/business competencies. Delivering value using a mix of project management approaches is a priority for these organizations.
