New Talent Gap Report: Opportunity Abound

PMI’s recent Talent Gap report shows that by 2027, the project management-oriented labor force is expected to grow by 33 percent in project-oriented industries across 11 countries. Skills in project management are what employers need—in fields as diverse as manufacturing and construction, management and professional service, finance and insurance, information services and publishing, and health care. Even industries that are not highly project-oriented will experience growth in project management-related openings.
