PMI Talent Triangle Related
The PMI Talent Triangle represents the skill set that global organizations have deemed critical for project practitioners. The PMI Talent Triangle illustrates the three skill areas employers need. They are as follows:
- Technical Project Management
- Strategic and Business Management
Knowledge, skills and behaviors related to specific domains of project, program and portfolio management or the technical aspects of performing one’s job/role.
This skill area will vary from certification to certification. For example, the technical skills required for agile project management are different than those needed to function in a program management role. However, there could be areas of overlap.
These are a few examples of topics that would fall under the “Technical Project Management”:
- Requirements gathering techniques
- Project controls and scheduling
- Risk management
- Scope management
- Agile tools and techniques
- Certification maintenance courses
Knowledge, skills and behaviors specific to motivating and guiding others. Leadership is the ability to articulate a vision and guide or influence others to help achieve that objective.
These are a few examples of topics that would fall under the “Leadership” skill area of the Talent Triangle.
- Conflict management
- Giving/receiving feedback
- Problem solving
- Team building
- Emotional intelligence
- Knowledge of and expertise in the industry or organization that enhances performance and better delivers business outcomes.
- Strategic and Business Management is the ability to connect the dots between your work and larger organizational strategy to drive project outcomes
- Understanding of overall business context
These are a few examples of topics that would fall under the “Strategic and Business Management” segment of the Talent Triangle.
- Business acumen
- Operational functions – e.g. marketing, legal
- Strategic planning/alignment
- Contract management
- Complexity management
Minimum 35 PDUs
Minimum 18 PDUs
|The remaining 11 PDUs can be obtained in any area of the triangle.||The remaining 6 PDUs can be obtained in any area of the triangle.|
The PDU is the measuring unit used to quantify approved learning activities. One PDU is earned for every hour spent in a planned, structured learning experience or activity related to project management.
To align an activity to more than one skill area of the Talent Triangle, you will need to determine the time spent per skill area, to accurately determine the amount of PDUs.
Talent Triangle skill area activities can be awarded in PDU increments of .25, beginning with .25.
For example, for an 8 hour activity (excluding breaks and lunch hours): 7 hours were spent on Technical Project Management topics; 45 minutes were spent on Leadership topics; and 15 minutes were spent on Business and Strategic management. You would then assign 7 PDUs to Technical and .75 PDU to Leadership and .25 to Business and Strategic management.
