The field of modern professional program and project management (P/PM) has been growing and evolving since the 1950s.  The field may or may not yet be considered a “profession” in many countries.  Nonetheless, there now exist professional associations and societies, bodies of knowledge, standards, qualifications and other elements for advancing professionalism in the application of modern P/PM – to the benefit of society.
