PMP and Project Management
Here, at The Knowledge Academy we are receiving more and more calls each month for PMP training in Australia. This is due to the fact that the PMP methodology is officially global and has been for some time. The project managers of Australia seem to love the PMP processes and principles and desire to add it to their company. Thus, the PMP certification is spreading even further than originally predicted.
Project management is the application of knowledge, skills and techniques to work to meet the stakeholder and customers’ needs or requirements. Therefore project management uses tools to manage projects.
When a project is taken on by a PMP they must look at the standards and regulations surrounding that project. The standard is agreed on based on a set of rules which are put in place in order to achieve the optimum degree of success. These standards are normally published by an authority figure. A regulation is also a set of rules which are issued by a government agency. These lay down a set of rules which are mandatory for compliance. A project is typically a temporary endeavour designed to provide a unique product or service which was not enforced previously. Thus in every project there is a beginning and an end and therefore, no project will last forever.
The project will begin because there is a need for it and therefore it will have an ‘official life’. This document which is produced in order to explain why the project is needed – a project charter will also look at the cost of the entire project. The end of the project will only be when all goals and targets are met. The only reason a project may end before these goals are met is because there is no longer a need for the project and thus it would be abandoned.
The PMBOK is used to guide all project managers through their PMP training and help them understand how to work alongside the PMP methodology.
Moreover, it is not just the PMP who looks at these aspects of the project; it is also the project team, the project manager and the upper management of the company. Thus it is all who is involved with the project management methods which take place within the organisation. This is another reason why the PMP certification has become so popular; it involves all that take part in the project, not just the senior members.
