Elaborate[edit]

Could somebody elaborate this article a bit?

Where is the the justification that this claim that this process is widely accepted? --Hirzel 21:43 10 Jul 2003 (UTC)

Can you add the states that accept and use PMBOK?

Can you also list and add the valid websites for the certifications?

It's hard to valid websites and certification websites, any suggestions?

Concern[edit]

My concern, not only with the PMP certification, but with all certifications in generalis that it is no longer possible to keep up with sunami of advancing versions of each certification. PMP, Cisco, Microsoft, Sun, all of them produce new versions like doughnuts at Krispy Kreem

Certifications are becoming nothing more than extortion and a money making racket, there are certifications for even the most mundane tasks now. What happened to they days when they were stable and had "real" value and meaning?

To elaborate, I studied CCNP v1, then along came version 2, no sooner than I had paid my GBP2750 for V1. Again I studied MCSEW2K, before I had even completed the courses they were outdated, again GBP2500 and where are we already with MCSE.

PMP, I studied V2, over GBP3000, and before I could write the exam, V3 emerged so I decided to wait and save my money for V3, now I am ready to write V3, V4 is to be released within the next month...................

If I had all the money needed to keep current with certifications, I would not need to certify as I would have enough money to retire a wealthy man. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.254.104.253 (talk) 12:08, 1 September 2008 (UTC)


I have a concern that the PMBOK is a closed ecosystem book. The world is moving faster than a book can keep up. The limited visual information is static. A more open visual ecosystem is needed to reflect the evolving nature of this discipline to create new things. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.221.65.230 (talk) 13:30, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

In as much as the PMBOK only exists as backing for the PMP (project management professional certification) it does deserve it's own Wikipedia explanatory page. For that reason, only. Not because it's current or meaningful in any other way. Kckid (talk) 01:36, 5 December 2013 (UTC)
