Project Management Professional (PMP) is an international certification in project management. PMP demonstrates the education, skill, understanding, and competency required to be effectively involved in projects, often in leading and directing positions.
PMP does not offer methodologies or protocols which are set in stone. Rather, it provides a framework for key concepts, best practices, proven historical practices and how to apply tools and associated techniques to a project. It is up to the individual to ascertain how to use the body of knowledge provided within PMP and apply it based on the aspects of each individual project. These aspects cover (but is not limited to), user requirements/expectations, project requirements/expectations, geographical/cultural considerations, governing regulations, and people.
