10 What is this new learning that is based on conceptual plane?
Show/Hide
Once the Concepts of any subject are clear we can build up a robust and strong superstructure. For instance, once we understand the basics of Earned Value Management System which is a concept, we can then use this conceptual framework in any process or knowledge domain like Time or Cost or Communication. We do not first classify the knowledge domain or processes and then define the Concepts required to understand this knowledge domain. We reverse this sequence. First of all, we equip students with the Concepts and then see how, where and when they are used.
11 Can we test our understanding of project management discipline before registering for your e-Learning course?
Show/Hide
Yes, we have a separate module called PMKQTM which stands for Project Management Knowledge Quotient.

CIPM is also called Middle level. The depth of the subject increases from IntroCIPM to CIPM but the coverage is for the entire 8 phases of the Project Life Cycle.
13 Why do I need to upgrade my knowledge in the discipline of Project Management?

A project is a vision, a need, a dream or a strategy which is to be converted to reality by delivering. Project Management helps us in the effective and efficient accomplishment of this mission. If that is what a project is, then irrespective of your discipline, whether you are a housewife, a doctor, a lawyer, an engineer, a social worker, a government employee etc. it will help you in better planning and implementation of your plans so that you can control events the way you want to.
14 Can you define what Project Management is?
Show/Hide
Project Management is the art and science of converting abstract into concrete or vision into reality or strategy to delivery. At every stage , we create value and deliver value. The realization can be most effective through formal understanding of project management processes.

A project or a group of activities involves 8 major project life cycle phases.

  • Knowledge Leverage
15 Why is Project Management one of the fastest growing disciplines in matured economies?
Show/Hide
It is simple. The winds of globalization and extraordinary shrinkage of the globe into a village has made companies and societies to become 'projectised' i.e. they have got to be faster, better and cost effective to survive. The sun never sets on the globe. In this new scenario, it is imperative to create high compression of time to reduce the total time taken from initiating a concept to its realization. In 2001, Fujitsu, Japan has declared that “ PM is the New Economic Infrastructure”. That is why, project management as a formal discipline is emerging as the key area of growth. Rosabeth Moss Kanter of Harvard once said in the late 90's "There are two disciplines which would dominate the substantial part of 21st century…… and one of them is project management."
16 What do we need to make an area of work, a discipline?
Show/Hide
Basically, for emerging as an independent discipline, we need to have a code of ethics and governance; standards; a Body of Knowledge; research activities to keep the profession running and certification for people to display their understanding of the fundamentals associated with the discipline. Project Management is having all the above 5 major ingredients. Though project management has been in practice since the beginning of the civilization, its modern day interpretation is new.
17 What is the difference between general management and project management?
Show/Hide
Basically, the two disciplines overlap with each other. General management also encompasses planning, organizing, staffing, executing and controlling but it is more applicable to operations of the ongoing enterprise. Project management principles are more specific to implementation of a change, a project, which is a unique and temporary with a finite start and finish time and has all the attendant problems and risks associated with it.
