Chicago, IL: The Project Management Institute (PMI), the world’s largest project management member association, named LBL Strategies as a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.). The R.E.P. title corroborates that LBL Strategies met PMI’s rigorous standards for quality criteria for course content, instructor qualifications, and instructional design. The Project Management Institute’s network of registered education providers is approved to deliver professional education and training to project managers seeking to earn and maintain industry certification as a Project Management Professional (PMP)®, Program Management Professional (PgMP)®, Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP)® or other PMI professional credentials.
Today, project managers increasingly turn to PMI R.E.P.s for certification training and continuing professional development in a profession whose median income continues to rise and now exceeds $81,000 (USD). The field of strategy management is evolving as a discipline and is gaining wider acceptance within organizations in public, private and government settings.
LBL Strategies is continually at the forefront of emerging theory and practical developments in the project management field and is regularly adding to it with original published works. LBL is actively involved in industry level developments through a longstanding relationship with the Association for Strategic Planning — working “in” the industry by delivering practical solutions to strategy development, and working “on” the industry through the Association for Strategic Planning to drive improvements into the field continually.
“We are extremely honored and excited to be credentialed as a Registered Education Provider for the Project Management Institute,” said Randall Rollinson, co-founder of LBL Strategies. “We have been an R.E.P. for the Association for Strategic Planning for many years, and now are excited to be training both strategy and project management professionals.”
LBL Strategies joins the ranks of PMI’s registered education providers located in more than 80 countries across the globe. PMI’s network of R.E.P.s includes commercial training providers, academic institutions, and corporate training departments within corporations and government agencies.
