About PMP Certification

PMP stands for Project Management Professional and this is a credential issued by the Project Management Institute USA. The credential recognizes an individual as well versed and skilled in applying project management best practices for any enterprise endeavor taken up. There are close to half a million PMP’s world wide making this one of the top certifications in the world.

Project management best practices as espoused by PMI’s Project Management body of knowledge (PMBOK) are significantly reflective of the project culture in Kuala Lumpur. The working culture in Kuala Lumpur has a lot of emphasis placed on plans and predictability. Whether it’s a new airport terminal or an Olympic stadium or building a F1 race track, projects in Kuala Lumpur are planned meticulously before any work is committed.

Whereas the average success rate for projects worldwide is around 30%, success rate for projects in Kuala Lumpur is close to 70%. Majority of Infrastructure projects in Kuala Lumpur complete within time and cost and according to the original scope. The high success rate of projects in Kuala Lumpur can be attributed to a number of factors such as:

  • Less volatile environmental factors
  • Transparency in project communication
  • Extensive planning
  • Low cost of coordination
  • Discrete measures to curb planning optimism

The last point is of particular importance because it embodies a key trait of a typical Kuala Lumpur Project Manager. People working in projects in Kuala Lumpur are guided by a competitive spirit to do the best they can within the constraints. A project manager in Kuala Lumpur takes great pride in the outcome no matter how small in terms of monetary terms. A project manager for setting up a small coffee outlet will want to be the best in what he or she does just as the project manager for a half a billion dollar hotel.

This quality is something that people in Kuala Lumpur are taught at a young age and stays with them throughout their career. Most project managers in Kuala Lumpur have some certification in project management discipline. Obtaining the PMP certification in Kuala Lumpur is a natural progression for a project manager who takes to the best practices described by PMI easily.

There are project teams wherein the entire set of project resources are PMP certified in Kuala Lumpur. Obtaining the certification is more than just a validation. Reposts suggest that Project Managers in Kuala Lumpur are more likely to apply the skills they have learnt than in any other country. The quality of finished work in Kuala Lumpur is a reflection of this.

A best practice described by the Project Management Body of Knowledge is to communicate the finish date estimate of a project as a range instead of a specific date, to account for the high degree of uncertainty in the environment. Any Infrastructure project you see in Kuala Lumpur will have a board outside the facility that displays the finish dates as a range instead of a specific date.

The PMP certification as such is highly valued by employers in Kuala Lumpur. This is reflected in the numerous job advertisements wherein the PMP is listed as an essential qualification. People are continuously encouraged to better their skills and there is a constant drive towards efficiency and productivity. The government funds up to 50% of the costs involved in obtaining a PMP certification.

As a result of the cycle of thirst for knowledge, government support, industry adoption, better results, Kuala Lumpur is likely to be among the top countries for project efficiency and success.
