I've officially earned my PMP

by Paula Moran

Through several weeks of hard work studying I have sucessfully passed the PMP test and earned my certification.

Right now I'm reflecting on what were effective practices during studing.

What I can immediately take away from the whole process is the abosolute importance of a well designed communication plan.  I've just taken over planning a promotional event.  Little planning was done before I took it over and the effects of poorly planned communication are showing themselves by e-mail taking up copious amounts of my time.  After I was able to identify all the skateholders, I was able to create communications plan and documented it in excell.  I'm pleased to report that those two steps have taken hours off my e-mail burden.
