The demand for skilled technical project managers is growing at a time when more and more are retiring, according to a recent report from the Project Management Institute (PMI). The gap is swelling between open positions and available professionals. The need for employees with skills in leadership, strategic and business management, and technical management is more important than ever. PMI warns that this gap in qualified candidates could lead to a loss in profits of over $200 billion globally through 2027.
Globally, PMI predicts that there will be over 2.2 million new roles each year that require this expertise. In the US, that projection is over 200,000 new jobs each year until 2027. There are opportunities abound for professionals with technical management experience and education. You can learn to inspire innovation and success in information systems, product development, research, laboratories and more.
