PMI’s Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP)SM credential recognizes the advanced experience and skill of portfolio managers. The PfMP® credential holders are responsible for the execution of the portfolio management process, communication around portfolio progress, and recommendations for action. Where project and program managers are responsible for “doing work right,” this is an ideal credential if you are responsible for ensuring your organization is “doing the right work.”

Certification Requirements

  • A secondary degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree, or the global equivalent), with at least seven years (10,500 hours) of portfolio management experience within the past 15 consecutive years.
    OR
  • A four year degree (bachelor’s degree or the global equivalent), with at least four years (6,000 hours) of portfolio management experience within the past 15 consecutive years.
    AND
  • Since portfolio management focuses on strategic investment matters and high level organizational decisions, it is pertinent to have a foundation of professional business experience. All applicants must possess a minimum of eight years (96 months) of professional business experience.

Les Personnes

Tout d’abord les membres du PMI France (~4000). Les bénévoles (100) avec pour objectif de doubler ce nombre pour atteindre un taux d’activité de 5% de nos membres (un membre sur vingt). Au PMI nous comptons énormément sur les bénévoles pour partager compétences, savoirs et donner régulièrement un peu de leur temps aux autres membres et activités de PMI France.

Les Partenaires

Sans leurs concours, impossible d’organiser autant de conférences (>100/an) avec des intervenants de qualité, des apéritifs conviviaux pour le réseautage, le tout à des prix très abordables et même souvent gratuits. Sachons saisir de nouvelles opportunités de création de valeur de part et d’autre.

Les Processus du PMI France

Ils devront être revus et améliorés, pour stimuler notre efficacité et offrir de meilleurs services à nos adhérents où qu’ils se trouvent.

Personal comment: While this report is interesting, I wish it would dive deeper next time into how the Agile principles can help address some situations where the fuzziness of the business requirements is high.

This presentation demonstrates how Microsoft Project Server can help a company achieve its business objectives through Project Portfolio Management. In complex business environments, collaboration is critical for demand management, capacity planning, project governance, resource management, defining team roles and responsibilities, etc. Microsoft Project Server, and its project and portfolio management concept, can assist project team members and business decision makers in their daily routines and help structure their projects from their basic beginnings to their successful completions.

To bring the concept of Microsoft Project Server to life, our speaker, Jeremy Cottino will introduce you to 4 characters of the Daisy Town Corp and how Microsoft Project Server can influence their day to day activities to help them achieve their project goals.

  1. Joe, the head of PMO. Joe tries to influence his company’s project managers to use his project management methodology. For him, methodology is, of course, not a burden but an essential element in any project coming to fruition. Joe is also in charge of project ideation in the company.
  2. William, the portfolio manager. William is in charge of delivering the required and expected business value through portfolio prioritization and optimizing the appropriate resources.
  3. Jack, the delivery team manager. Jack’s job is to be able to allocate resources across projects. He plans and adjusts his projects based on what resources are needed vs what resources his company actually has.
  4. Averell, the consultant. Averell is a famous and influential consultant who plays an objective role in advising the company on project management. He will analyze prerequisites and cost of the implementation of Microsoft Project Server and give some alternatives.

Please join PMI Swizerland for this event, where Microsoft Project Server will be presented for a non-technical audience, without any marketing and sales pitches.
