Many construction managers believe that it is not necessary to become a Project Management Professional (PMP)® since they have already mastered project management while running construction projects. Professionals in the construction industry have to deal with project managers from many different disciplines. This presentation will help project managers better understand how the PMBOK® Guide framework helps their business and their professionalism in dealing with project managers from other disciplines. Although the discussion is from a construction project management professional perspective, the findings will be beneficial to PMPs of any multi-disciplinary industry.

Learning Objectives: 

1. Help Construction Companies in Construction Project Management?
2) How establishing a Project Management Office increases productivity and efficiency in a Construction Company?
3) How a Construction Manager can benefit from becoming a PMP to gain a common understanding and language to collaborate with PMs from other disciplines?
