Mapping the Talent Triangle

Training aligned with standards

What is the PMI Talent Triangle®?

In the past, Registered Education Providers focussed on allocating training hours to the various knowledge areas of the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK® Guide) and aligning our own stringent quality controls and reviews with the standards set by the Project Management Institute.

In a far-reaching change to course alignment, the PMI now demands all providers align their courses with a much broader range of concepts including leadership and business strategies, to better prepare the project workforce for the demands of a modern enterprise. The three complementary areas now sought in a training course are project technical skills, leadership and strategic and business knowledge.

Our courses are already aligned with this new training strategy and we are ready to help you succeed!
