New research indicates project management skills, including the ability to effectively execute projects and identify and manage project risk, will be some of the most sought after skills over the next five years.

PMI’s PathPro® helps you identify these skills so you will be ready next time someone asks “Why should we hire you?” PathPro is the only project management career tool based on the extensive research of project managers and the skills that lead to success.
