Hi Everyone,
I am new to this forum and want your inputs to clear a confusion in my head.
I have 8 years of Business Analyst experience, with experience mostly in below 2 domains/tasks.
1. Execution
2. Monitoring and Control
I have worked on projects which were ongoing and the initial phases like Initiation and Planning were already completed when i joined. So i do not have any experience in these domains. Also i was not part of Closing task.
Do i need to have or show experience in all the domains (Initiation, Planning etc) in my PMP application. Will it suffice if i show experience in above 2 domains only.
Please provide your valuable suggestions.
