PMI has acquired ProjectManagement.com
, two of the largest online resources for project managers and professionals. For more than a decade, both websites have provided project managers with access to a broad range of tools and templates, project management office (PMO), events and one of the most vibrant and diverse global online communities for professionals in project management.
“The combination of PMI, ProjectManagement.com, and ProjectsAtWork.com bring greater opportunities to the 51 million people around the globe who are engaged in the management of projects. Together, we will deliver access to more resources, better tools, larger networks and broader perspectives,” says Ricardo Triana, PMP, chair, 2013 PMI Board of Directors.
This collaboration will leverage the broad content creation capability of ProjectManagement.com and ProjectsAtWork. com with PMI’s global reach to deliver enhanced knowledge sharing and networking capabilities to project, program and portfolio managers worldwide.
ProjectManagement.com was designed to help project managers meet their day-to-day challenges — getting them “unstuck”, saving time, and keeping them from reinventing the wheel. The goal of ProjectsAtWork.com has been to engage and collaborate with the PM community and bring fresh thinking to the forefront while building bridges to techniques that have stood the test of time.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be part of the PMI family,” says Dave Garrett, CEO of Gantthead, which operates ProjectManagement.com. “PMI recognizes the tremendous value that comes from encouraging an open environment for the sharing of knowledge. And now through our combined efforts, we will have many more tools and resources to make that happen.”
Content and points of view on ProjectManagement.com and ProjectsAtWork.com will continue to remain impartial. Both sites will continue to focus on generating content through use of industry experts and facilitating global networking and knowledge sharing among practitioners at all levels, across all regions and industries.
Details of this acquisition will be available in PMI’s 2013 Annual Report.
