Expert advise

Value of Project management certification

  • For many project management jobs, PMP credential is a mandatory criteria. Without the credential, you will not qualify for the job.
  • The project management body of knowledge, which is a collection of globally accepted project management best practices, provides you with a framework to base your project management decisions. That improves your confidence and stature as a project manager.
  • Research says that, within professionally managed projects, certified project managers perform better, than others. Within unprofessionally managed projects, there is no difference in performance between certified and not certified project managers

The right mindset while preparing for the certification

  • Position yourself as the project manager of a very large project. That will help you to appreciate the processes better. For example, the relevance of a project communications plan is very high in large teams, where as it is not that important in small teams. Stepping into the shoes of a professional project manager of a very large team adds relevance to the concepts.
  • Many of the concepts can be different from the ones you were / are practicing successfully. This can create mental blocks. Be very clear about your objectives. Your primary objective should be to master project management based on the project management body of knowledge.
  • If your focus is blindly on certification, the journey can be very boring. Always have a balanced view of the practitioner’s perspective and the the exam perspective.
