Will the PMI-ACP become more popular than the PMP?
Network:9388



With more and more projects going Agile, is it only a matter of time before there are more PMI-ACP certified individuals in the same calendar year than the PMP?

PMI-ACP is increasingly gaining popularity for it's adaptability in unpredictable circumstances. But I guess it will take another couple of years before it surpass PMP certifications in a year.

Thanks Najam, I think it might take a little longer than that, but there is the real potential for that to occur.

Only time will tell :)

It seems as though when it comes to 'Agile', scrum 'ish certifications garner the most recognition and market value. The PMI-ACP will certainly increase in value and recognition, but it will be some time for it to overtake PMP.

For instance, we always denote as PMI-ACP, while conversely, just PMP. That in itself, says something.

Andrew yes we are very Scrumish ;-) I always wondered why they didn't just name it the ACP instead of PMI-ACP.

It looks like the Agile community is growing and has begun to heavily implement Agile methodology at a rapid pace to execute projects in a dynamic environment. So, obviously the PMI-ACPs are highly valued and I think in a matter of time their demand will increase in the project management community.

Anish that seems to be the case.

Or, will we see agile delivery becoming so ubiquitous that at some point there is not need for a distinct agile credential and the PMP will be the one credential to rule them all?

Kiron, a very distinct possibility. I have also thought this. But the biggest reason why this may not happen is because of the previous certified PMI-ACP's. It does make you wonder though since they are both essentially project management certifications.

Kiron, I had thought the same, though, hmm, maybe revenue wise that would not be a good decision. In theory though...
