Managing any project successfully is all about Team Work combined with years of Accrued Expertise. It is an asset to have an educational background that compliments your field of expertise but "education" without "experience" is like an "arrow" without a "bow." You can never make a perfect shot with a temporary arrow unless you have a permanent bow called: "Life's Experience." Remember, you can never teach experience but you can always teach from experience.
During a conversation with a friend last week as we were working on a private project, he threw a joke that I should create a Certifcations Wall of Fame given that I earned lots of valuable certifications over the years. The joke turned into a serious conversation and thinking about it later, I concluded it would actually be a good idea so I decided to turn the joke into reality.
As I look at all those badges all consolidated in one view, I feel so proud of those accomplishments. I can’t even express how much each and every one of those journeys added value and helped me grow both personally and professionally.
It took lots of dedication, commitment and hard work to build this concrete wall and guess what, I am ready for the next one. When there is a Will, there is a Way !
That's impressive, Rami, congratulations in all your achievements.
I realized that those are only the certifications related to project/program management, however do you also have specifics for your industry?
Let these certifications always remind you of the "Journey" and keep you striving towards the next "road".
Do not think in terms of Goals but progress towards improving yourself, each day , with each certification .
Think in terms of how you can help others through this new knowledge or how better can you share it with others and make them better in how they do their jobs. Think Philanthropy.
