What are the trends and issues impacting project management around the globe? The Project Management Institute’s Pulse of the Profession report looks at the macro environmental and business factors that are changing the project management landscape. The report links these factors to specific trends in enterprise project management practices and the development of project management practitioners. Pulse of the Profession draws from a number of sources to paint a timely picture of the project management profession. The heart of the report comes from PMI’s own Pulse of the Profession Survey, which is based on feedback from over 1,100 practitioners from around the globe. The survey explores trends in the practice of project management and how those practices correlate to project success or failure.

Jason Dolfi serves as the Manager of Market Development for the Project Management Institute where he leads the market intelligence, environmental scanning and regional business planning activities. Since joining PMI in 2003 Jason has led extensive research in the global project management arena; including studies on the projected growth of the profession, the psychological characteristics of project managers, organizational project management maturity and sustainability in project management. His recent studies have focused on project management practices within government bodies and the practice of project portfolio management in large and mid-size organizations. His research has been published in the International Journal of Project Management and cited in The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg/Business Week Online and CIO Magazine.
