- Many organizations expect a significant shortage of project management talent for the same time period. The automotive healthcare, infrastructure development, and green technologies industries may experience especially acute talent gaps.
- According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), project coordinators and managers earn an average of $67,280 per year. Project managers with specialized technical skills command salaries in excess of $100,000 per year, according to the PMI.
Generally, a "project" is a sequence of activities that results in a specific outcome, achievement or commodity. Project managers organize, launch and manage the people, processes, and resources that combine to create successful projects. Project managers may oversee the development of new or refreshed products, processes, or business centers.
Certification designates a project manager as a dedicated professional who has undertaken a disciplined course of study and approaches their work in an organized and efficient manner. Data from the Project Management Institute indicates that holders of its PMP® designation earn on average $10,000 per year more than their non-certified counterparts.
The Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) and the Project Management Professional (PMP®) from the PMI are considered the premiere qualifications for project management professionals.
Although nearly every industry needs project managers, technology, construction, manufacturing, professional services, energy, and healthcare are especially strong sectors for project management careers.
