Beside the overwhelming freedom to hack my new dwelling as I saw fit, I was excited I finally had a canvas with which to paint with crazy holiday lights. I had to take hiatus when I went to college and through the following 5 years of apartment renting.
Brian Crawford Reply March 9, at 4: Thanks — I appreciate it! Paul Smith Reply April 3, at 1: First off I agree with the author that a PMP is really a waste of time and money….
Lets say you have 20 years PM experience and a degree in management…. First they think they are entitled and second they have no real world experience…. Second people with PMP designations do not make more money…. Management is an art and a science as much as it is a people skilled profession…… They teach you those things on the job and not in a three day classroom or from some PMBOK….
I read that book twice and its pretty weird if you ask me….
Thanks again for commenting — I do appreciate it! Sam Reply November 30, at 3: You are also forgetting a number of other factors that come into play. Brian Crawford Reply November 30, at 6: Many people feel that it is worthwhile, but there are also a significant number of people who feel that PMP certification is worthless.
So if the person doing the hiring has had good experience with PMP certified project managers, or puts weight into the credential, then it is a worthwhile certification. I personally believe, and have seen through my experience, that PMP certification is worthwhile and can make the difference between getting hired to manage projects or not getting hired.
I also believe that you are correct when you say that PMP certification can also be the deciding factor between two candidates with near-identical experience.
Not to mention that there are many jobs out there that require PMP certification of the people who apply for them. Thanks again for your thoughts, and all the best to you in your project management! Sid July 31, at 2: I have never had a direct job as a PM although as functional consultant you do do things that cut across the 5 domains of PMP.
Is it worth doing PMP for me? My confusion arises when I see people without PMP climbing the corporate ladder? Will the time and effort that I hope to invest pay-off in the long run or should I pursue this? As per the article you wrote, yes its expensive. So thats my question — whats the return on my investment in this certification?
I dont wish to waste time and money…. Regards Mike Reply June 18, at 4: Further, People will not value your opinion if you do not take the time to use correct: One, with your experience, should have an editor look over their work before submitting it publically.
Thanks again, and all the best to you! Brian, Just passing through, and I wanted to say thank you for another interesting article and discussion. Also to put in my two cents, a post about companies that hire PMPs and their perspective would be terrific.
Hope you are having a good spring! Cheers, Brian Crawford Reply May 19, at 3: Thanks for your kind words! I hope that all is going well with you.
