Course Overview

Every day, employers are asking more of their project managers to drive innovation and success at their companies. Possessing the core skills of project management is no longer enough. Project managers now need business and leadership skills as well. Project Management Institute (PMI)® defines this combination of skills as the PMI Talent Triangle. Fulfilling the requirements of the triangle can seem confusing and complicated—but it doesn't have to be.

We have created a 3-day virtual course, covering leadership, business, and technical topics to make the PMI Talent Triangle easy. Our content experts will provide you with everything you need to grow your project management core competencies while providing the necessary hours in each area to meet the PMI Talent Triangle PDU requirements. This series of classes contains topics specifically selected for project management development and is consistent with the skills described in the PMI Talent Triangle. At the end of this course, you will have the necessary skills and hours to satisfy the PMI Talent Triangle requirements.

This course bundle has been approved by PMI for 24 PDUs: 8 PDUs in alignment to Ways of Working (Technical); 8 PDUs in alignment to Power Skills (Leadership); 8 PDUs in alignment to Business Acumen (Strategic and Business Management)
