PMGI's history is entwined with that of our parent company Development Partners & Management international (DPM International). DPM was founded in May 2006.
DPM International started operation with the delivery of its flagship online training course Project Management for Development Practitioners (PMDP™). The PMDP was the first course of its kind, aimed at providing NGO workers, diplomats and humanitarian workers with the ability to learn project management wherever in the world they were posted. Our first project was the design of a Strategic Development Plan for Jamaica’s Creative Industries, for which we utilised the strategic foresight technique. Today DPM International has taught more than a thousand individuals in project management and has executed numerous research and policy related projects within the international development community.
In 2013, DPM International established the Project Management Global Institute (PMGI). PMGI offers project management courses at all levels and is proudly engineered by the highest quality standards in training. At PMGI we ensure that our services are delivered at the highest internationally accepted standards by ensuring that we ascribe to the various industry quality standards. Additionally we leverage our expertise in project management and international development to ensure that knowledge transfer is of high-impact.
