Building a tree house is a project, so is putting a man on the moon. From the simplest of tasks to the most complex business ventures, projects are a part of most of our lives.

With the ever evolving and growing Industry, the management of project has become more challenging than ever.

Let’s take an example of a pit stop in a F1 race. The duration of pit stop for a car is around 3 seconds. But what if the pit stop is extended from 3 seconds to 6 or 7 seconds? It means a difference between winning the race & coming 3rd with sponsorship & money implications.

Considering such a huge importance of projects, their effective & efficient management becomes imperative and so is the need to have a globally recognized certification like PMP® to back your Project Management skills.

PMP® is the most recognized and sought after Certification in the Project Management domain; yet during my preparation days for PMP®, I felt the need to have a good quality single point resource which one can refer to guide through the journey from deciding to get PMP® certified, assisting in filling the application form, sharing the preparation strategy as well as offering to-the-point and crisp study material to help in passing the exam.
