The PMP certification is considered the paramount certificate of the Project Management industry. Numerous corporations are beginning to embrace PMI methodologies and the PMP certification because it provides a consistent framework for project development, planning, and execution throughout the world. Microsoft Corporation recently acknowledged the PMP certification as its certification of choice for its employees, and we anticipate that it will be one of the most sought-after certifications as the profession continues to evolve. Many PMI chapters are seeing annual membership increase by 10% to 30% as more people become aware that project management is a discipline just like engineering, marketing, and accounting.
The term project management has been incorrectly used in organizations for many years, and PMI and PMP advocates want to set the record straight about the requirements of effective project management, the benefits, and the positive financial implications. Many public, private, and government entities are now seeking PMP certification as a prerequisite to employment or contract negotiations. This is indicative of the fact that PMP certification is here to stay and is a valuable addition to your career development.
The PMP Exam is internationally known within the PMI community and with practitioners of project management. It provides a framework for developing consistency and structure to the profession. Prior to PMI, the project management profession lacked uniformity across multiple disciplines. The PMP exam encourages participants to view project management in the same light as other disciplines, such as accounting, marketing, or computer science.
