Chapter 97: Enhancing Individual Professional Competence

Professionalism in project management, as in any other field, demands that while practicing your profession you continue to learn and grow professionally. This is important for your individual success and for the advancement of the profession. It enables you to continue delivering what you promise to your customers.

Project management is a very involved and growing field. PMP certification is only an introduction to this field. For example, you can focus on any of the nine knowledge areas, such as risk management or quality management, and explore it further. Exploring the existing dimensions further is one area of learning, and adding new dimensions is another. For example, how about managing virtual teams i.e., teams that are spread out geographically? This new dimension in project management is quickly becoming an important and integral part of the project management profession, even faster than PMI can digest.

Exploring existing dimensions further and practicing new dimensions enhances your individual professional competence, as well as enables you to contribute to the knowledge base. Working in the field will also expose your professional weaknesses, which you will need to work on. This is also an integral part of enhancing your individual professional competence.
