I would be an interesting challengue, but I am so curious if an expert in quality is enough. That question invite to think about to possibility. Great.

There is no reason to create it. Project quality is inside quality discipline and you have certifications on the matter like ASQ certifications. Our focus is portfolio/program/project quality not product quality. All of that is covering by ASQ certifications.

Agreed. ASQ already supports the field of Quality. Additionally, the field of Quality is BIG. ASQ certifications include: Quality Auditing, Reliability Engineering, Quality Management (which has some duplication with PMP), and more. What PMI /could/ do, however, is work with asq.org to align terms (or at least disambiguate them as necessary). I would like to see the international professional and certification societies and organizations work together and identify gaps.

There are already a lot of certifications which cover Quality management, therefore a PMI-QMP would not be desirable

I am not a fan of creating a different type of certifications. It seems this approach is a business approach for certification bodies rather than a good approach for the practitioners or market.

As the Project Manager, you are inherently the Quality Manager in terms of project quality as Sergio stated. It's my opinion that the Project Manager shall add a liaison from the Quality Management group in the Project Team, especially critical external projects. Also, I found it beneficial that the PM include the QM for any specific Quality Management Plan to be implemented during the execution of the project. This ensures that the project quality meets the product quality and allows for higher success rate rate for first pass acceptance by the product owner.

If you really look at it there is much more advancement to the 10 knowledge areas beyond the pmi and counting as individual entities and your concept looks rational as qualifying in a single sector or special field for that matter.Sure why not.

I agree with most of what my fellow colleagues mentioned. I think creating a unique certificate for Quality Management is not ideal as quality is built in every certification and discipline.

Also, agree. Quality is built into other certifications and incorporated into other disciplines.

If quality certification isn't necessary why do we have Risk Management and Scheduling certifications?
Why is Risk necessary but Quality isn't?

I know that people that have both certifications will hate me but both has no sense. If you see the related standards (I was part of the group of authors and reviewers) it has no enough consistence to create a certification based on the standards. The same for portfolio and program.
