What is a PMP(R) credential?
- updated 11-14-2020
The PMP credential stands for Project Management Professional(R).
The PMP credential is offered by the Project Management Institute.
It is a credential that validates your project management experience, knowledge and skills.
Project Managers need analytical thinking, sound logic and reasoning skills, to be good at what they do. Preparing for the PMP Exam helps improve these skills as well as acquiring many industry best practices that are concurrent with business best practices. The PMP is now a global standard for project management. Employers in the know, seek out "preferred" PMP certified employers for management positions or prefer to hire them over others.
A lot of the PMP(R) Examination is knowledge-based analytics. Business Managers also do a lot of projects. They often dont call them projects. A project is simply a temporary endeavor (has a start and finish date) that has a unique outcome either a unique service, product, result or process improvement.Why Earn a PMP(R) credential?
