5 Reasons Organisations Choose a PMP® Credential
1. High Performance and Value
This is achieved through creating a project management mindset based on value. Choosing to train your team in PMI® methodologies ensures a high standard and a consistent quality for projects running in your organisation. High-performing project managers successfully meet project goals more often, and waste less money than their low-performing counterparts.
2. Common Approach and LanguageThe PMI® framework, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) - Sixth Edition enables project teams to adopt a common approach while allowing the project manager to apply the appropriate processes for each project. As every project is different, this ensures that critical procedures are in place and are applied at the right time, without getting bogged down in bureaucracy.
3. Talent and Information Management
Successful organisations recognise the benefit of trained, professionally certified project managers who know the importance of managing information and project communications. This ensures that information and know-how form part of the organisation's assets instead of being trapped in people's heads.
4. Credibility and Proof of Competence
The PMI® has championed exceptional standards in project management certification since 1969. The PMP® credential was the first of its kind, designed specifically for project managers. PMI® credentials are internationally recognised and respected.
