In October of 2013, the Project Management Institute acquired the United Kingdom-based company Human Systems International. For 20 years, Human Systems International has developed a database compiling best practices in project, portfolio, and program management. As these two well-known entities in the project management industry are like-minded, the acquisition is expected to result in synergies that will prove very beneficial for the Project Management Institute. The transaction’s value will derive in large part from combining Human Systems’ data-driven approach with the large scope and reach of the Project Management Institute, resulting in enhanced benefits for professionals around the globe.
