When you are already a qualified professional, why the need for an accredited certification is the intellectual stew brewing in most the brimming minds. Some are even audacious to declare that no one gets to tell them ‘what they already know’.
You have probably heard it, and I for sure can testify about the lament of a senior manager in the construction industry who managed some awe-inspiring structural creations to his credit as the chief architect “can you believe the boss pushing me to get the PMP certified?”, whilst I was a bystander in that conversation then [2 years before]. Today, employed in the education space, I marvel about that man’s predicament and feel miserable in not empathizing with his plight. The opposite of love is not to hate. It's apathy. Sometimes, we veer off that direction showing total lack of concern or conventional wisdom. If a civil engineer feels the pressing need for a professional certification, try imagining the IT professionals. In all fairness, accreditation makes you suave, savvy and surges your career.
Surely and certainly, PMP® does equip you with the knowledge considered essential and emboldens with a positive spirit to take the ‘corporate bull by its horn’.
