PMI Talent Triangle

The PMI Southwest Ohio Chapter has a proud history of bringing the skills of great speakers to our chapter and community.  Since founding in 1969 the Project Management Institute has become the world’s leading professional organization for project management.  PMI sees all people, companies and Nations using Project Management as potential stakeholders.  In far reaching stakeholder discussions PMI has learned that while technical skills are core to project and program management, they’re not enough in today’s increasingly complex and competitive global marketplace.  The ideal skill set — the Talent Triangle — is a combination of technical, leadership, and strategic and business management expertise.
