PMI Stats for Jan 2011

The January 2011 Project Management Institute (PMI) statistics are in.  The PMI now has over 417,475 active Project Management Professionals (PMPs) and 340,232 members. So, what's new? We have a new certification announcement! In the event you were living in a cave for the last week, PMI announced the introduction of the Agile Project Professional (APP) certification.

PMI Certifications other than PMP

With the announcement of the APP, I empathize with those people out there with PMI certifications other than PMPs.  I feel like they've kind of been left in the lurch.  If you sum all of the "non-PMP" certifications for the month of January, there were only 246 recieved.

I added the APP to the chart, merely as a placeholder.  But, I do not doubt that it's going to be PMI's new shining star, as soon as they make it available.
