Who Practices Project Management?

Most people that i come across keep asking me about project management as a profession and its application in their specific industries.I got part of thos article from a great website to answer that question.
 Part 1
Everyone practices project management to some degree: Farmers plan what, when, and how they're going to plant; how they’re going to take care of their crops as they grow; and how and when they’re going to harvest those crops. Parents plan what they're going to prepare for their children for dinner. (If they have strong project management skills, of course, they delegate things like setting and clearing the table to the kids.) And so on.
In business, project management is an art, a skill, and a demanding full-time job. Project managers (PMs) are key employees in such industries as construction, engineering, architecture, manufacturing, and real estate development, but many opportunities for PMs exist outside these areas. In high…

Career Tracks and Compensation for Project Managers

Career Tracks for Project Managers

Very few people start in the field as full-fledged project managers. Most are offered an assistant position on a project management team and are assigned responsibility for one aspect of the work. As you gain experience, you may be assigned more and more tasks to manage, until you're ready to lead others in completing an entire project. Other newcomers start out with primarily technical jobs, creating, tracking, and updating the schedule using a software program; reviewing documents, and writing reports.
Project Coordinator
Project coordinator is an entry-level position that offers exposure to the work done by project managers. It's usually an administrative position involving a great deal of paperwork. You generate and distribute the reports that keep the project management team, owners, company staff, and others informed of a project's progress. You also schedule meetings and assist the management team in any way…

Every PMP Needs PDUs!
Earn 15 Free PDUs!!

I thought to share part of this mail to you from my friend Cornelius Fichtner, PMP

About 4 months ago you relied on our PMP Sample Questions to prepare yourself for the PMP exam. We can also help you once you have passed the exam without wasting your time or money.

The PMI rules say that once you have received your PMP credential, you must earn 60 Professional Development Units (PDUs) every 3 years. Otherwise you will lose your PMP status.

Let me help you and give you a gift of 15 free PDUs.

I am not only the host of The PM PrepCast, I am also the Host of The PM Podcast. And by listening to the podcast you will be able to earn 15 complimentary PDUs.
You can learn about these 15 PDUs here:

Demystifying the CAPM and PMP Credentials

Ihave loads of people that keep asking about the differences in the CAPM and PMP Credentials.I will try to demystify the CAPM and PMP Credentials here.

The CAPM and PMP credentials are two different credentials. Holding a CAPM is NOT a prerequisite for earning the PMP credential.

CAPM: for team members, project co-ordinators and entry level project managers who wish to certify their mastery of PM concepts.
* Based on PMBOK only
* Previous PM experience is not required
* Certification is good for 5 years and is not renewable.

CAPM is Appropriate for:
* Entry level Project team members and project support staff
* Entry-level project management practitioners
* Students at the undergraduate and graduate levels

The CAPM credential shows employers and clients that you understand the project environment and basic PM concepts as well as having familiarity with the Project Management Body of Knowledge and PMI methodologies.

CAPM Eligibility:
* Minimum of a high school diploma or the global equ…
