Life is full of projects! Each project has a specific duration with specific goals, activities, schedule, cost, risk, stakeholders, you name it. When I first became a Project Manager (PM), I did not have much idea and just wanted to implement it. But along the way, I learned the importance of planning, budgeting, communicating, monitoring, etc.
It is quite difficult to measure the skill as a PM, but there are actually general guidelines and certificates to show you know them. Project Management Professional (PMP) is one of the few internationally recognized PM certificates.
After 5 months of study and 1-time failure, I finally passed PMP. It was a bit tough journey and this is big business as many people invest so much money to get this. This post is for anyone who is interested in PM and wants to have a PM certificate.
