Knowledge is the single most key ingredient in managing complexities of 21st century. Like Intelligence Quotient (IQ), Emotional Quotient (EQ) or Spiritual Quotient (SQ), PMKQ™ measures the Knowledge Quotient in the field of project management. We must know where we are and understand the knowledge gaps before we can take effective corrective measures.
Though we gain experience over time, our knowledge gets outdated and needs to be regularly updated to be in line with the latest trends worldwide. Executives and managers especially in projects often believe that they have adequate knowledge of the various contemporary concepts of project management and thus do not need to further upgrade their knowledge base. Project management especially is a growing discipline and this assumption could be disastrous for the organization.
PMKQ™ is a small step in helping people and organizations to see where they stand, identify their weak areas and identify the areas for upgrading their knowledge base.
The PMKQ™ assessment Test has 48 questions
covering the 8 Project Life Cycle phases, 21 Knowledge Areas and 30 PM related Concepts.

PMKQ™ concepts are a breakthrough first of it's kind in organization effectiveness in imparting project management training. It is the first such assessment tool launched globally in 2009 by CEPM.
