Professionalization of Project Management: Exploring the Past to Map the Future

This PMI monograph explores the world of occupations and professions to draw lessons that might help guide the evolution of project management from a knowledge-based occupation to a profession. It includes a historical study of professions and a discussion of more than 100 professional occupations. The research confirms that project management is not now a profession and has much work to do to earn that designation. The conclusion identifies and provides insights into the most important questions to be considered to move the professionalization of project management forward.
