Project Management Institute (PMI), the leading professional organization for project management, and and the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL)® are joining forces to provide high-impact learning experiences to project professionals and individuals who use project management skills. Leveraging our unique capabilities, PMI and CCL will work together to consistently create better outcomes for businesses, communities, and societies around the world.

As a result of this new alliance, CCL will provide PMI with access to a suite of  research-based leadership development resources to make available to its members, certification holders, and organizations. The resources are focused on developing critical skills to help them become more effective leaders and changemakers.

The first resource is CCL Boost™ for New Leaders, which is now available to project professionals in PMI’s online learning catalog. PMI® certification holders can also earn 6 professional development units (PDUs) for completing the course. The self-paced, online leadership course encourages individuals to change mindsets from “me” to “we” as they learn tactics to use while on the job to attain immediate success in a new leadership role.

“We are thrilled to be joining forces with CCL to provide best-in-class training to our community,” said PMI Chief Strategy and Growth Officer, Dave Garrett. “At PMI, we are dedicated to equipping project professionals and changemakers with the skills needed to make a real-world impact. Offering CCL Boost™, a leading resource for new and emerging leaders looking to supercharge their leadership skills, to the PMI community provides them a way to hone key power skills they need to effectively drive change.”

“As strong, mission-driven organizations, PMI and CCL are committed to touching more lives and having a positive impact in the communities we serve,” said CCL Director of Strategic Partnerships, Lynn Collins.

“We have enjoyed shaping the journey together to ensure we deliver results that matter, through advancing the understanding, development and practice of leadership worldwide.”
