Who should get a PMP credential?
So, you’re impressed by the new analysts at work, and you noticed they have “PMP” in their signature line. But what does that mean, and do you need to get it too, whatever it is?
First off, PMP stands for Project Management Professional. Someone who has earned their PMP certification has met specific education and experience requirements and has also passed an exam with the Project Management Institute or PMI.
Being PMP certified means you have demonstrated a high level of skill in project management and have shown that you understand how to lead teams, successfully manage a project, and connect the dots between project and organizational strategy. Wow. No wonder you’re so impressed by the new person!
