Next week, I am going to write a series of articles which will explain, in very simple terms, what the PMI PMP is all about.
I will give a high level explanations in five separate articles, published from Monday through Friday, which will explain the following topics.
- Who is the PMI and what is PMP?
- PMP in a nutshell
- The PMP Exam
- What does PMP mean to me
- 3 years of continual learning
When Project Managers talk about professional qualifications they often mention two exams, these are the Prince2 and the PMP qualifications.
Prince2 is overseen by the Office of Government Commerce and is used in many companies including the government in the UK to manage projects in a controlled environment. The PMI (Project Management Institute) has several categories and levels of examination, however, I will only focus on the PMP (Project Management Professional) exam. I currently have both of these accreditations.
I hope to give a simple overview and some useful tips for the exam (Quick hint: study, study and more study).
