For an effective project management it is required to domain the technical expertise, the human skills and the capacity do manage. The last ones are not commonly explicit in the descriptions of the careers. The reason lies in the fact that the project management profession is not, in most cases, officially recognized in the corporate world. Even worse, most organizations do not know the different skills that are needed to execute projects successfully.
Another fact is that organizations which provide a very well defined professional careers, have more and better chances to develop and retain their talent.
After conducting extensive research involving over 5,000 professionals of project, program and portfolio management, PMI® used the results to create the competency profiles on projects to help organizations to better define the careers of its projects professionals.
"Organizations that offer project managers a defined career ladder are often more successful at retaining their project management talent." - Project Management Institute
The PMI Career Framework is available without any costs to organizations and it has all the descriptions of the different functions in the project area and identifies the skills found in the successful professionals categorized by each level of expertise.
This ensures the proper development of skills that are necessary to successfully execute projects and adjust the profiles required to a guide development in order to have the competence improvement of the organization’s projects professionals.
