To understand the project management professional of 2018 and beyond, requires an understanding of how we have matured and changed from the project schedulers of the 1960s. How did PMI play a role in building a new profession?

At this 20th anniversary, this presentation aims to put you back in the 1960s, help you understand the motivation for the founding of PMI and to give you a look at the time and people. With this bit of history as a backdrop, we will then take a look at what the future may hold for the project management profession and PMI.
