How to become Better Qualified for career in Project Management?

Project Management has evolved into a well defined discipline which requires the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet project requirements. To be successful as a Project Manager, one must have very good understanding of all the Knowledge Areas*** related to Projects namely :

  • Project Integration Management
  • Project Scope Management
  • Project Time Management
  • Project Cost Management
  • Project Quality Management
  • Project Human Resource Management
  • Project Communications Management
  • Project Risk Management
  • Project Procurement Management

Understanding the best practices in each of these knowledge areas and being well versed in the Project Management Context and Processes is essential for being a successful Project Manager.

It is highly recommended that every Project Manager should read the PMBOK® 2008 (publication of PMI®) which provides an excellent overview of the concepts mentioned above.

Taking the PMP® Certification Exam is also highly recommended because PMP® certification is the profession's most globally recognized and respected certification credential. The PMP® designation following your name tells current and potential employers that you have a solid foundation of project management knowledge that can be readily applied in the workplace.
