Is the SEMP Project Management the right programme for


me?
Some project managers train specifically for a professional
role in project management right from the start, whilst others
progress through their organisation in different roles, and at
some point identify project management as a role they would
like to take on. Sometimes it is a role that you fall into by
accident or one that is thrust upon you; so practical experience
is often gained before becoming certified.
If you are contemplating a career change then there are
several things you should consider. Firstly you must consider
if you think you have the right sort of personality to become a
project manager, for instance:

Are you comfortable taking the lead role in a highpressure situation?

Have you got the ability to effectively manage


resources on a large scale?

Can you think on your feet and quickly react to


change?

Do you have good problem solving skills?

Do you have the experience with finance to manage


large budgets?

Can you be honest, and say 'No' to staff and


management when required?

Can you be decisive when required, and accept


responsibility for your decisions?
If you answered yes to most of these questions then a career
in project management is definitely worth considering. As long
as you're proficient in most of the above, you can learn the
remaining aspects through good additional training.
Why SEMP Project Management?
SEMP Project Management provides benefits to the
managers and directors of a project and to an Organisation,

SEMP IN BUSINESS ENTERPRISE SOFTWARE


SPECIALIZED: ENTERPRISE SOFTWARE AND BUSINESS
INFRASTRUCTURE
SEMP Business Enterprise Software.
Business Enterprise Software (BES) is a professional area of
practice that assists enterprises in designing solutions to
achieve their current and future business objectives. While
enterprise software has most often been applied to complex
technology environments with high technology investments,
the practice is relevant for all types and sizes of enterprises.
All enterprises have business goals and objectives, and all
have resources that must be aligned with those goals in an
effective and efficient way. Enterprise software is a critical first
step in achieving those goals. One of the most important
lessons from enterprise software is the importance of design
and engineering before implementation.
Business Enterprise Software is a critical area today given the
increasing complexity of our environment and the need for
greater agility. The vitalization of work, the multinational
nature of work, the increasingly semantic and personalized
nature of applications, the richness of technology, the
increasingly networked nature of business, a shift from simple
projects to complex projects all speak to the need for
Business Enterprise Software.
