Project Management Resources: Organizations
PSMJ Resources, Inc. (www.psmj.com). The only international organisation offering project management training & support specific to the design & construction industries. In Australia: www.psmj.com.au.
Project Management Institute (PMI) (www.pmi.org). The fastest-growing professional society on the planet. PMI has a Construction Industry Community of Practice, but as the name indicates, it is focused on construction more than on design. Besides running several certification programs, PMI publishes a large library of project management books.
PRINCE2 (prince2.com); a worldwide organisation built on the British project management approach, and spun off the U.K. government as a private organization. It is similar to PMI in its generalised PM approach, but differs in its structure. PRINCE2’s focus is on certifying people to its two levels of accreditation.
