Project Management Professional Certification

Project Management Professional Certification
The Project Management Professional (PMP)® is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. You can find PMPs leading projects in nearly every country and, unlike other certifications that focus on a particular geography or domain, the PMP® is truly global. As a PMP, you can work in virtually any industry, with any methodology and in any location. The PMP also increases your earning potential. PMP certification holders earn 20 percent more than their non-certified peers, according to Earning Power: Project Management Salary Survey—Ninth Edition. Employers benefit as well. The PMP signifies that you speak and understand the global language of project management and connects you to a community of professionals, organizations and experts worldwide.

Zoom Conference Calls: Webinars (Pricing) Zoom Meetings (mobile and desktop client): This is what users use day to day to join meetings from their personal or work computer or mobile device. Zoom Meeting is a desktop application and smartphone app designed for a user account on user-assigned devices (such as your mobile device, tablet, or desktop). The device that the Zoom Meeting app lives on is not designed to be a shared resource, it's tied to an individual. Zoom Meetings resides along with a user’s other applications (e.g. email, calendar, photos, etc on their device). So with Zoom Meetings, it's really the user's Zoom environment and profile. For example, Zoom Meeting will include the user's chat groups, 1:1 chat messages, starred contacts list, Zoom Phone number, call history, and other user-level settings and information. A part of Zoom Meetings is Zoom for Home. Zoom Rooms are IT-managed resources that are designed to be the only application up and running on a system.

Five myths of quant consulting November/December 2010 Caution before entering: Misconceptions abound in fascinating field. By David Lengacher For a lucky few, the field of quantitative consulting provides the type of catalyst-environment that keeps engineers and operations research analysts continually challenged, perpetually seeking a deeper understanding of the their client’s problems and the governing dynamics that created them. However, quant consulting is not just about analytical skill. In addition to conducting statistical analysis, building spreadsheet models and formulating linear programs, “quant-sultants” need to develop soft skills as well, yet many quants believe that solutions sell themselves. Myth No. 1: My solutions and reccommendation will sell themselves. This myth is painfully familiar to those who transitioned from more qualitative management consulting fields to quantsulting.

The Academic Consultant--Why Start a Consultancy? Over the past year, I made the decision to begin my own business as a consultant in sport science support and environmental ergonomics. On top of a booming research lab and a full teaching load, not to mention a growing young family, why would I take on this new venture?
