Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) June 18, 2012
It is reported that more than $12 trillion, one-fifth of the global GDP, is spent on project management. Also, a significant percentage of qualified project managers are retiring. Thus, excellent project managers are in high demand.
Project managers can show their qualifications through project management certifications. Project Management Institute (PMI) is a leading, not-for-profit organization. Its certifications, especially the PMP, have become a highly regarded industry standard. Another important organization is ScrumAlliance. Their certifications show that the holder is capable of dealing with complex project management.
Project Managers holding project management certifications stand above their peers. Business owners know certified project managers can complete projects on time, to a high level, and within budget. These are the candidates owners prefer to hire for their high-paying jobs.
Many project managers would like to hold project management certifications but their lives are getting in the way. First, they hold full-time jobs. After a long and challenging work day, it's difficult to feel motivated to study. In addition, many have families. As responsible partners and parents, they want to spend time with their spouses and children. This extends the day even further, making it harder to "get into" studying for a certification exam.
Research has found that studying with a partner has clear advantages over studying alone. One study found that average grades of study pairs were significantly higher than grades of the individuals. Another study clearly indicated that studying with a partner enabled a greater retention of facts.
