Project Management
Due to 2020’s events, so many tasks and activities became more complicated, yet others became easier and more accessible. For example, 2020 became a great year to go online, learn, acquire new skills, and even pick up a certificate or diploma in the process. This is certainly the case for the Project Management Professional (PMP) and many other types of certifications. However, what I found most surprising was not the online training for the PMP exam but rather the exam itself. When I took the exam back in 2010, I was surprised how concerned the test centers were with the possibility of cheating. Not only did you have to leave your mobile phone, watch, wallet, and so on in a locker outside of the test room, but also the proctors…

And the main reason for this is that, as project management professionals, we need to stay current when it comes to management trends, methodology, and how project management, in general, interacts with our specific industry.

As you tell by the countless websites guaranteeing success on the PMP exam on the first try, passing the exam is on the mind of many exam candidates.

PMI, org) has never published a grade or percentage required to pass the exam. Therefore, there is a lot of conjecture, hearsay, and theorizing.
