How I Became PMP Certified while Traveling in South America
PMP Certification in 60 Days
I started as an accidental project manager in 2014. I was working on several large-scale projects as lead business analyst and my PM was overloaded so I took initiative and managed some of her projects. Then I realized I loved doing project management more than business analysis and so I continued taking over more projects, wearing two hats of business analyst and project manager at once.
Fast forward to 2018, I was managing remote projects while doing a quasi-sabbatical trip in South America when I found out that PMI was shifting to the PMBOK 6th edition. I had to be PMP certified before March 15 otherwise I had to pay one more time for the 6th ed of the book. Time was of the essence. Studying while traveling was tricky but I managed to pull it off… Read on to find out how I did it.

Project management isn’t just a theory or concept that is read from a book. Principles of project management can and should be applied in real situations or actual projects.
In this article, I will describe two kinds of projects that I managed in real life. One is a small-scale while the other is a large-scale project.

I will then discuss in detail how the different knowledge areas with its ITTOs (Inputs, Tools and Techniques, and Outputs) are applied and utilized were applied for the two projects.
