My boss recently approached me and asked if I had any ideas of what I wanted to do in terms of professional development this year. I am not new to project management, but I am new to the world of IT project management and more specifically healthcare project management. Does anyone out there have any suggestions for useful courses or certifications I should look in to? If my employer is offering to pay for professional development, I absolutely want to take advantage of it and make myself a better PM!

I will recommend you to join one of the on-site PM Events. Personally, I try to ask for PMI Global conference and the local one.

Since you are not new to Project Management and your boss wants to know your professional development goals and is willing to pay why not check out PMI.org and see about working toward your Associate PMP or Full PMP assuming you don’t already have them?. If information technology IT is a new area for you, how about looking in to foundational training like Comptia Network and Security +?. I have been primarily IT full time and Project Mgmt part time over the years and have now started to transition into more PM duties. I’ve obtained my PMP and want to enhance that with updated IT training and, if possible, certifications. Definitely, getting familiar with Cloud i.e. Azure and AWS is a goal,.

Lori Wilson, a member of our community here, would be a good resource to possibly provide some direction here (Healthcare professional). Taking some technically focused courses could be helpful too; basic programming, database, etc. Other options would include working toward your PMP.

Dear Troy:
In health I have heard about Watson and the solutions he proposes. I agree with Andrew: "Taking some technically focused courses can also be helpful"

Thanks everyone for the input, I greatly appreciate it!! Lots of really good ideas and things to look in to. I already have my PMP, so I am looking for something more "industry specfic" and love the options presented here. Again, thank you!

Many people ask a rather-limiting question, "What should I look for in selecting professional development?

Instead broader questions engender a better kind of strategic thinking, "What might be the shapes of the future? Am I open to growth beyond PM? What are my ambitions to make impact in my career, in my industry, and in my chosen communities? What might I want to be my personal brand?"

As a PMI seminar leader, I continually run into PMs who have taken a passive approach towards their career and towards their professional development. Too few of them really have a clear idea of what impact they want to make and what they want to learn. They just tick off the PDUs requirement and don't grow to their fullest capacity.

On the other hand, I also experience some PMs that are clearly top tier and want to make an impact. They are both curious and ambitious.
