Congratulations on your PMP, John.
We had quite a few discussions around the impact of PMP in the project manager' professional life. A quick search for "PMP pay" returns the following threads.
What has the PMP brought you? (You might want to consider a cocobolo desk instead of mahogany).
In the world there are a lot of people that define himself project manager without know what is really project management. At the same time there are a lot of companies which request Project manager without know what project manager do. The focal point of the question is not PMP certification assures an increment of the pay but it is necessary to create a real PM culture for having PMP certification correctly appreciated
Thanks for your reply,
Fosco nailed it 100% - PMP definitely adds huge value.
Personal satisfaction on the achievement. Even though in quick feedback, you may not get incremental in your salary, but personally you have improved your project management skills. It's is essential for ourself to keep up to enhance our knowledge.
Whether or no an increment happens, a PM now is in command with the knowledge and industry best practices in the form PMBOK for managing the project. By applying what you have learnt for PMP will help you in total project management.
