Need of Certified Project Management Professionals
When someone talks of the “project” or the “project management”, our mind tends to think of the huge construction projects or the projects related to IT implementation, etc. Going by the definition of the projects, it clearly says that a project is a temporary task undertaken to create the desired impact that can be a service, product and so on. It suggests that our whole life or the daily work can be broken into a number of projects. Everyone does the management of different day to day projects.
Why Professional project management?
In 1998, The Bull conducted a survey to understand the reasons behind the failure of the projects. It showed three main reasons behind it.
• Communication breakdown with the relative percentage of around 57%.
• Lapses in planning effecting around 39%.
• Poor level of quality control being held 35% responsible.
Although no company will easily accept that there are defects in the project management but lapses are not easily visible till the failure. Companies normally depend of the approach of the project manager. If he is working on a different platform than the rest of the people, the project is bound to crash.
This is exactly where we need the PMP training. This helps to bring all the people at the same platform. Normally all the people involved in the project are completely aware of what is required but just the inability to manage them leads to the catastrophic results for the project.
Looking at an experienced guy who has spent a lot of time with a particular company, one may tend to feel that he/she can manage the projects of the company well. This is a common practice and has become one of the main reasons behind the failures of a number of projects. There is no denying to the fact that experienced guys are assets of any organization but a professional management minimizes the chances of the failure.
What do Professional project managers do?
The prime focus of these mangers is to bring all the involved employees on the same page of the project book. It involves setting standards and procedures. There is effective communication and the concerned are kept well updated and they actually know what is expected from them, the job in hand and the desired result. This also helps the employees to foresee the threats and obstacles so that they can do proper planning to subdue them at least, if elimination is not possible.
Need of Certification!
There are great risks involved with almost every project which a certified PMP understands better. A formal education helps him to understand these risks. It also involves providing the training to understand how to alleviate the impact of these risks. All this is possible because of the up-front training and the learnings from the past which are set as examples. During the course they evaluate different aborted projects. They are made to understand the reasons behind these and ways to nullify them.
This becomes mandatory to mention here that if anyone wants to opt for such a course, he/she should choose a place where there a lot of IT companies. In fact, one would find the best of these colleges in or nearby an IT hub. There is a reason behind that. You tend to get better feel of the situation in its environment. Consequently, we have training programs in Silicon Valley (California, USA), Institutes in Bangalore (India) or Maryland PMP training, in addition to a lot others in the world.
From the organization’s point of view the professional PMP not only enhances the chances of the success of projects but also sets an organizational culture that is studded with gems of success, reliability and growth. And from the career perspective there is a need of a lot of trained and potential mangers.
