Message from the President, Ghana Chapter
On behalf of the Board and Management of the Project Management Institute Ghana, I welcome you to the year 2022.
We have come through a very difficult year primarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There have been job losses, collapse of businesses, loss of lives, and dear ones.
Nonetheless, the year 2021 emboldened us to be more adaptive, resilient, creative, and innovative to be able to sail through the troubled waters.
The Chapter continued its growth efforts, in spite of the COVID19 pandemic and was able to attain about 41% growth in its membership in 2021. The Chapter’s members profile continues to cut across industries, prominent amongst them include Energy, Telecommunications, Healthcare, Finance, Construction, Government, Information Technology, Aviation, Engineering, Agriculture, Education, etc.
As the preferred hub for all Project Management related issues and solutions across the country, the Ghana Chapter empowers its members and volunteers with quality programs, coaching, mentoring, project health diagnostic skills and experiences that provide exceptional value delivery solutions to organizations, businesses and governments.

Grow Your Skills
It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.

History of PMI Ghana
Officially, systemic project management and its practice was alien to the majority of Ghanaians during the early days of the formation of the Chapter which dates back to 2008-2009 until it was finally chartered in 2011.
In fact, the few that had heard of project management attributed it to be for only the construction sector. At the time, even name “The Project Management Institute” was virtually unknown even among most practicing professionals including as architects, engineers, surveyors etc.
The Project Management Institute, with members in 135 countries, is the world's foremost authority for the project management profession. PMI sets industry standards, conducts research, and provides education and certification opportunities designed to strengthen and further establish the profession. Our chapter proudly serves all the local and national professionals in the space of Project Management. We currently have thousands of members - over half of whom hold PMI’s esteemed PMP certification - and represent nearly 400 unique companies across the globe.
