BabSim Partner Spotlight: PMI

Babbage Simmel’s partners play a crucial role in our business. Our partner channels enable us to access the right software, the right curriculum and the right resources to create effective solutions for our clients.

The next few posts will spotlight some of our partners.  Today in the Spotlight is PMI – Project Management Institute.

Who is PMI?

PMI is the world’s largest not-for-profit membership association for the project management profession. Their professional resources and research empower more than 700,000 members, credential holders and volunteers in nearly every country in the world to enhance their careers, improve their organizations’ success and further mature the profession.

What does a Project Manager do?

According to PMI, Project Managers are organized, passionate and goal-oriented individuals who understand what projects have in common, and their strategic role in how organizations succeed, learn and change.

Project managers are change agents: they make project goals their own and use their skills and expertise to inspire a sense of shared purpose within the project team. They enjoy the organized adrenaline of new challenges and the responsibility of driving business results.

They work well under pressure and are comfortable with change and complexity in dynamic environments. They can shift readily between the “big picture” and the small-but-crucial details, knowing when to concentrate on each.

Why a PMP®?

PMI’s Project Management Professional PMP® credential is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. Globally recognized and demanded, the PMP® demonstrates that you have the experience, education and competency to lead and direct projects.

This recognition is seen through increased marketability to employers and higher salary; according to the PMI Project Management Salary Survey–Seventh Edition, certification positively impacts project manager salaries.

How can Babbage Simmel help with your Project Management Career?

The Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification has become a highly sought-after indication of professionalism in project management. Preparing for the PMP® examination, however, can be a daunting and time-consuming experience.

In order to meet the needs of busy professionals Babbage Simmel has created PMP® 1-2-3: A Guide to Preparing for the PMP Exam, which forms the base of this intense, five-day workshop. PMP® 1-2-3 brings together the materials covered on the PMP® exam into one easy to use, step-by-step method for efficient and effective exam preparation based on PMBOK® Guide – Fifth Edition.

PMP 1-2-3: A Guide to Preparing for the PMP® Exam is January 27, 2014.
