    About the Program

    Program Management Professional (PgMP)

    The Program Management Professional (PgMP) Credential is PMI’s answer to the growing complexity of the management landscape.  It addresses the skills and knowledge of managers who must juggle a portfolio of projects for strategic, rather than tactical benefits.  This introduction provides an overview of the credential, including the rationale behind its creation, where it fits in relation to other PMI credentials, and the process for obtaining the credential.
