PMI is driven by a clear mission and an underlying set of values that drive how we act and influence the expectations of our stakeholders. Even as a diverse organization, we share a common set of values. Our core values are not subject to changes in the association and business environment or dictated by trends in organization management. These values are fundamental and deeply held.

As part of our Core Ideology, PMI’s Core Values are enduring and are guiding principles upon which we act.

At PMI, we believe in:

Project Management Impact Project management is a critical competence that has a positive influence on organization results and society.

Professionalism Accountability and ethical behavior ensures our commitment to PMI stakeholders.

Volunteerism Volunteers and effective volunteer partnerships with staff are the best way to accomplish the Institute’s goals and objectives.

Community Bringing members of the global project management community together is the best way to advance the project management profession and facilitate their growth.

Engagement Encouraging diverse viewpoints and enabling individuals to contribute to the project management profession and to the Institute.

Through times of growth and change, our core values provide continuity and a moral compass, communicating our beliefs and guiding our behavior.
