The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics does not classify project management as an occupation, so it does not track job outlook for this profession. However, it tracks construction managers and computer/information systems managers, which include project managers. The outlook for construction managers and computer/information systems managers is better than average. 17 percent anticipated through 2018. In addition, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in a 2006 article, notes that managing projects is an increasingly important responsibility for many workers, as more organizations use teams and project-based methods to get work done."
