Welcome to PMI Baton Rouge

2018 Pulse of the Profession 

Since 2013, we've seen a 27% decrease in the amount of money organizations are wasting due to poor project performance. As of this research, 9.9% of every dollar invested is wasted, down from 13.5% in 2013.

Champion organizations - those who complete 80% or more projects on time, on budget, meeting business intent and having high benefits realization maturity - are continuing to mature their project talent, capabilities and culture. Because of this, they have higher project success rates (92% versus 32% for underperformers), enjoy more successful business outcomes and waste significantly less money due to poor project performance.

Success starts with the right approach to support project delivery. PMI's 2018 Pulse of the Profession findings show that regardless of whether predictive, agile or hybrid is used, organizations that use some type of formal project management approach are successfully meeting their goals. And champions are better at choosing the best-fit approach.

Organizations are facing heightened competition and ongoing disruption. They see that no one single factor drives success. Smart organizations understand that proven project management practices lead to greater success and less waste.
