New Core Values for Project Managers

Posted on January 19, 2010 by


The Project Management Institute has unveiled its new core values. According to the January 2010 edition of PMI Today, the Core Values Review Task Team obtained feedback from stakeholders which led to 45 candidate values. The definition of core values are “essential and enduring principles guiding PMI.” From these 45 candidates, the 5 values deemed as best meeting this criteria were: Project Management Impact, Professionalism, Volunteerism, Community, and Engagement. PMI is clear that, among other purposes, these core values are designed to be “guiding principles” to help those in the project management profession make decisions.
