Project Management Central
Considering your 2019 New Years Resolutions - what are your goals in Professional/Personal Goals? Are you set towards obtaining Professional Designations/Career Advancement/Personal Growth?
I know the "destination" is often the hardest part of setting goals - with the challenge that "we don't know we're going to do next" or "what we want to do".
At the same time your destination is critical and also the most important piece.
As you move forward and consider your goals & conversations - remember 3 things:
1) Why am I here?
2) What do I want to accomplish?
3) What am I excited about?
I've spent the last two years executing marketing strategies and sales performance goals into projects. I've had amazing results and obtained multiple Professional Designations along the way which I find exciting and I want to enter full time project management. Saving Changes...
I'm looking at two potential personal development goals for 2019. The first is to complete a couple of modules in a diploma course in adult education (with the hopes of completing the program within a couple of years) and the second is to attain the PSM III credential once I muster the courage (and budget!) to do so.
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. – Nelson Mandela"
If you knocked out the PSM I & II -- you've got nothing to fear, as far as budget, does the ROI make sense? If it does, than the cost is insignificant.
Thanks for sharing -- good luck!

The fear factor relates to the very small number of folks who have achieved the PSM III compared with the lower two credentials coupled with the much higher cost to write the exam. I'm sure I will overcome that fear once I give myself some free time to focus on preparing for it.
The ROI is murkier - i doubt i will ever be able to directly attribute winning a gig or landing a job to it but in the very busy swimming pool of agile certifications, the PSM III is a little less crowded.
