Hi Everyone, I am one of the members of the WhatsApp group WinningPMPlan. I joined the group after a close friend told me about it and the Administrators and Creators Vidyesh Alve and Vidhi Raj openly welcomed me to it.
Soon after joining the group, I realized that many members are passing the exam with their dedication and efforts and that it was no point in being a laggard. This group helped me befriend like-minded PMP aspirants. In November 2017, I was keen to clear the exam at the earliest and booked the exam on 15 January, but due to stringent office schedule, had to delay it to 5th February 2018 and again postponed it to 7th March 2018.
Finally my D day; 07th March 2018 arrived. With the expert guidance of many members of the group and sincerity towards the goal, I got success in the PMP Exam in my very first attempt. I strongly give my credit to this WinningPMPlan WhatsApp Group for my PMP result. The group arranged for a mentor Anand Agarwal who along with other close friends from the group Mohd Faysal, Tijo Kurian and Koyel helped me reach my destination.
WinningPMPlan has an interesting idea to assign mentors to aspirants. These mentors are freshly brewed PMP’s. This led me to have a one on one relation sync in with my mentor. I would not hesitate to ask the silliest possible question to my mentor, and he having recently been in my shoes could easily empathize with me. Sometimes one can shy away from asking basic questions on the group, but trust me, no one is perfect, we can be ourselves in this group, and nobody is going to be judging us.
I got motivated with talented team members in the group from all across the world. Truly a local platform (on my phone) with global participants and experience. I appreciate the wonderful concept of Vidyesh Sir and Vidhi Mam for their initiative which is helping many group members to clear their PMP Exam.
My winning plan for clearing PMP Exam is based on strong concepts from PMBOK and detailed understanding of Rita. I specifically worked on ITTO/Data flow diagram from PMBOK. Unlike other PMP Aspirants, I did not give much emphasis to Mock Tests. Rather I was satisfied with my own hand notes and gave special attention to Risk Management, HR Management, Quality and Stakeholder Management Knowledge Areas.
