What are examples of project management? Some people who take the training have never had a title of project manager, yet they have lead or managed projects. That’s because they title may have been designer, engineer, architect, systems analyst, or another profession. What is a project? It is a temporary endeavor. Something temporary has a start and end date. The project must also have a unique outcome. Without a unique outcome, it is not a project. For example, perhaps you develop high school curriculum for certain subjects. Every year, you have to update the curriculum due to changes. Then when you create it, and each year to update it, it would be a project. Or you develop organizational training programs and you also conduct the training. Most of training programs that you created for your organization can be run over and over throughout the year and sometimes for several years. The first time you create it, it is a project, along with the first training. However, after that, it is operations (routine work) until there are changes. Once it is updated then it can be counted as a project again. Or perhaps you are a systems analyst assigned who was assigned review of all As-Is systems and report on the need for system upgrades, To-Be systems. You did an extensive report, linking all organization objects and actors, etc. You can report this activity as project management experience. However, if you job is to pull data every day for your customers, and your reports are routine daily or monthly operations, then your work is not a project.
How can you gain experience for project management if you don’t have enough project management experience? Many people work on a project management team first, then those who show leadership ability are often given opportunity to lead projects. If you don’t have any or enough project management experience, you can also take the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)(R) certification. If you have some project management experience and have some work on an agile team, you might have enough experience for a specialization in agile projects, a PMI-ACP Certification. Perhaps you have always been a business analyst. Business analysts do projects 99% of the time. They do business analyst projects. These projects qualify them to take the business analyst exam and or the PMP Exam depending on the amount of experience they have. As you can see all these topics are related.
