The value of the PMP certification has been increasing gradually since 2013-2014. In view of the current market environment and the recruitment intention of enterprises, PMP certificate qualification is a necessary professional qualification in the subdivision of project management. From 2013 to 2014, I may have heard a little about the PMP certification, but in the recruitment requirements around 2015, the PMP certification is generally preferred. Since the bidding documents of central ministries and central enterprises clearly require that the project managers of bidders must have the PMP certificate, then the PMP certification is not an selected option, but a mandatory option.
Project management has been developing in China for 19 years. With the continuous expansion of the number of the international talents, and the increasing trend of rapid growth year by year, up to now, there are 260,000 people participating in the project management exam in China and 210,000 valid certificate holders (PMP/ACP), accounting for 1/4 of the total number of people in the world. Among them, the number of PMP students is expected to exceed 40,000 in 2015, 78,000 in 2017, and 100,000 in 2018! It can be seen that project management is developing rapidly in China (PMP/ACP), which is worth looking forward to!
Project managers are dealing with people from the beginning to the end. The success or failure of a project has a lot to do with the people they are dealing with. The failure of many projects to carry out is mostly due to poor communication.
First, a lot of work in project management is indeed being done, but there is no systematic rules and regulations, and it is completely driven by personal experience.
Second, there is no clear project manager, sometimes even if the project manager is appointed, so there is no clear responsibility and rights.
Third, the monitoring process group is basically controlled by anyone who has the free time.
This kind of project management can be barely maintained in the short term, but in the long term, various unpredictable risks will inevitably appear. At this time, it is helpful for project managers to learn the PMP knowledge to improve their project management level.
Although the PMP certification is the professional qualification certification of project management professionals, it is not limited to engage in project management talents. For example, the company’s middle management hopes that they can pass a PMP exam to achieve the self-improvement and make themselves apply for an examination by learning to get the certificate to comprehensively enhance the level of project management skills and the leadership skills. It is also helpful for their future career development.
The idea of PMP project management can be applied to all aspects, including the most common life scenes, work and love. They all can be regarded as a project. It is often said that a person is a team. When you feel that managing your team becomes extremely difficult, it is necessary to learn some scientific methods systematically.
Through the systematic learning, PMP will help me improve my “project” management level in daily life and treat problems more rationally. Make project management a habit, a mindset, a way of life.
