Skills and knowledge are sufficient to perform the job but certification increases marketability.
I have to agree with Pankaj, skills and knowledge are a must and speaking from an automotive background certification in FMEA's, 6 sigma blackbelt, APQP, problem solving etc carry a lot more weight than PMP.
I agree with Pankaj. Your experiences, skills and knowledge is what is absolutely key. A certification is not needed but certainly enables for you to "stand out" from the others.
Given that you are not doing project management per se, the PMP certification will only attest to your management experience and your ability to work on a project.
You do not need a certification. You need to know about quality. That is not common. For example, some organizations create quality areas with the name "quality assurance" while quality is about quality control and quality assurance. IN fact, while the name is QA the only tasks some organizational quality areas performs is quality control. So, you need to really understand what quality is. Quality is fully related to things that today are buzzwords like agile and organizational agility.
Typically you don't need certification. Nevertheless in some cases it can be required by customers or are stakeholders. normally those tasks can also be performed by outsourced people/companies.
Pankaj provided a concise, simple answer. Also depends on the organization itself.
Agree with Pankaj!
Agree with Pankaj
Agree with Stéphane PMP is not required
I agree that you do not need to be certified to lead the QA Team but you must have skills and knowledge about quality and experiences in this area.
