News for January 2010
Stimulated by Dr. Paul D. Giammalvo’s incredible paper Project Management Credentials Compared – A Preliminary Analysis I share some thoughts and describe how I ultimately came to these conclusions:
- The PM Profession should work toward creating a single set of generic, universally-acceptable PM competencies, tools, and certifications.
- HR and training people, as well as those individuals seeking to upgrade their PM skills should (at least, for the present) ignore the certifications put forth by the PM Profession. They should focus instead on simply using the lists of competencies that underlie those certifications as inputs to their own PM performance improvement processes.
