PMP is knowledge-based, while PRINCE2 methodology is process-based for uncovering the best-proven practices in project management. PMP equips you as a knowledge-driven project manager with the “HOW” of project management. While, PRINCE2 deals with WHEN, WHAT & WHOM.

PMP stands for Project Management Professional. PMP certification is most popular in the USA, Australia, and America. However, it is valued worldwide within the project management domain. The PMP certification exam structure is primarily based on PMBOK. PMBOK guide is also called as a bible for project managers and stands for Project Management Body Of Knowledge. https://www.edureka.co/blog/what-is-pmp/
