PMI’s Program Management Professional (PgMP)® credential recognizes the advanced experience and skill of program managers. Globally recognized and demanded, the PgMP® demonstrates your proven competency to oversee multiple, related projects and their resources to achieve strategic business goals.

According to industry researchers, there has been a substantial increase in program management job advertisements where a professional program management certification is a mandatory pre-requisite for a job offer.

PgMP® credential holders oversee the success of a program, grouping related projects together, to realize organizational benefits not available if they were managed separately.  It’s the perfect fit if you define projects, assign project managers and oversee programs.

PgMP® credentials focus on program benefits and outcomes.  It outlines the role of a program manager versus a project manager, and the differing relationships between them and various project stakeholders.
