Abstract—Successful project management is primarily measured by the project manager’s ability to meet the classic triple constraint. What impact does certification and experience have on meeting project scope, time, and cost goals? This research study examines these factors by eliciting data from practicing project managers, with and without certification, and with various years of experience.

Index Terms—Project management, triple constraint, information technology, core competencies, certification, experience, knowledge-based, competency-based, commercial training
