While technical skills are core to project and program management, PMI research tells us they’re not enough in today’s increasingly complex and competitive global marketplace. Companies are seeking added skills in leadership and business intelligence — competencies that can support longer-range strategic objectives that contribute to the bottom line. Emotional intelligence appears to be of significant importance to project success.
Through research, the PMI has developed the ideal skill set - the Talent Triangle - which is a combination of technical, leadership, and strategic and business management expertise. The CCR and PDU advantage programs focus now on this particular triangle of skills.
What this means to project and program talent - what this means to you - is a focus on developing the additional skills you need to meet the evolving demands on your profession. But in doing so, it also means new opportunities to elevate your value as a strategic partner in business.
