Why PMP Certification and how it helps the business


By Dr. T D Jainendrakumar

The PMP certification is the most widely recognized and respected certification all over the world in the field of project management granted by the reputed PMI, USA.

The purpose and goal of this certification program is the development, maintenance, evaluation, promotion, and administration of a rigorous, examination-based, professional certification program of the highest calibre.

This knowledge will enable the certified project managers to perform their duties easily, efficiently and effectively.

This can be explained with an example: while driving a car its tyre got punctured unexpectedly, if you know the correct process you will change the step-in tyre easily by slightly unscrew the wheel nut then lift the vehicle using a Jacky, change the tyre, tight the wheel nut, un-jack the car and tight the wheel nuts thoroughly and you will drive forward and will reach your destination by mitigating the risk, if you don’t know the processes to be followed at that time, probably you may lift the car with the help of a jack, then try to unscrew the wheel nuts, you may unscrew it by taking more effort than actually required to change the step in tyres and you may get exhausted and may reach your destination by fretting and fuming and very late. But if you had the knowledge of processes to follow, things would have been very easy.

This is exactly as in the case of Project management and there is a big difference in doing something with knowledge and without knowledge.

What I would like to say is that the knowledge of PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) will allows anyone to accomplish more work in less   time, with fewer people in an optimized cost therefore Profitability will increase.
