Project Management Professional (PMP®) FAQs

While the scope of a “project” depends on the industry, projects are generally understood to be a series of activities that results in a specific outcome, product or achievement. Project managers are tasked with overseeing the people, processes, timeline and resources needed to complete to a project.

The best project management certification depends on one’s current professional experience, so the best certification for entry-level project managers will differ from senior project managers. However, the Project Management Professional (PMP) is widely considered the top credential for associate-level project managers.
