FAQ - What is the Demand for Project Managers Who Hold a PMP?
Here are three facts that affect your future in project management:
Fact #1: worldwide Demand for project managers is strong
Around the world, 1,570,000 new project management positions will be created each year through 2020. (Source: http://www.pmi.org/learning/thought-leadership/pulse/talent-gap-2020)
Fact #2: most new positions will require the PMP credential
The job descriptions will state "PMP required," or "PMP strongly recommended." Both statements mean the same thing: if you don't have your PMP credential, you will be locked out of that opportunity.
Fact #3: by 2020, project, program and portfolio managers will be corporate Mvps
The progression is from Project Manager, to Program Manager (multiple projects), to Portfolio Manager (multiple programs). By 2020, the demand for these managers will be so high that they will be able to write their own tickets for income and opportunities.
