Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s leading project management member association, announces that it will launch its Registered Consultant Program during the first quarter of 2011. The program, which is based on demand from organizations around the world, will provide organizations with the convenience of accessing a PMI maintained list of consulting firms prepared to improve their project, program, and portfolio management practices.
