Jozsef: Your experience appears to be in the format that PMI is looking for. When I made my application about 6 months ago, I asked the PMI rep for some feedback and they recommended some changes in order to ensure that phases of the project were clearly identified into process groups. Other Mods should also comment.

Good luck!

Hi Jozsef,

Cornelius has a great article on how to complete an application. Here’s a link: How to Fill in the PMP® Application

To answer your question, “didn't know if I should reference the outcome as a product or benefit”, the outcome (deliverables) could be a product or a benefit or both. For instance, you could have delivered software affecting a 25% decrease in licensing liability or delivered 20 new videos to an interactive training program.

OVERALL—
• You utilized quite a bit of the PMBOK® Guide’s language. :)
• To shorten descriptions, I used “&” or a comma instead of “and” or “while”.
• Confirm the tasks you listed are in the correct process group. Refer to Table 1-4, p. 25 of the PMBOK® Guide, 6th Edition, “Project Management Process Group and Knowledge Area Mapping”.

SPECIFICALLY—
Your project names used almost the exact same wording. If possible, differentiate them somehow by phase or attribute. Also, I didn’t include a contract type on my project names (FFP, etc.).

Project descriptions should contain the following:

1. One brief project objective sentence.
Your project objectives recycle almost the exact same wording (Develop software products to meet requirements.) What are you trying to improve, reduce, create, etc.?

2. One brief project outcome sentence.
Your project outcomes use almost the exact same wording (Delivered XX benefits.) What did your deliverables improve, reduce, create, etc.?

3. Deliverables summed up in the Process Groups and abbreviated (as you did) to: IN, PL, EX, MC, and CL.
• “Creating an activity duration plan” sounds like estimating activity durations, then perhaps developing a schedule.
• “Conduct meetings” seems vague. What activities/purpose surrounded the meetings or were you developing and managing your team?

I hope these suggestions help. The goal is to show PMI your project management trifecta: leadership skills, knowledge, and experience. These were just my personal opinions; it’s up to PMI to make the determination.

That said, YOU ARE ON YOUR WAY! Revise your application and share it with your colleagues. I look forward to seeing your Lessons Learned in the Forum someday, Jozsef.
