Certification or Practice - The Road Ahead
During the last few decades certification has been the mainstay of many professional organizations. While one cannot deny their usefulness, particularly in acquiring knowledge, the same cannot be said in terms of their application in practice. This is evident from the fact that while there has been some improvement in delivery of projects with regard to standard metrics of scope time and cost and even organizational performance, outcomes have not been commensurate with large number of professionals getting certified. There is a long way to go before project management can be considered and get accepted as a professional practice.
This talk will present the current status on various certifications (knowledge and practice based) by various professional organizations in project management. It is intended to bring up the debate about whether certification is “sufficiently” contributing to the practice of project management and if not, what can be done to improve the impact of certification on project management.
