Do-It-Yourself PM Certification: How to Document Your Skills & Get the Credibility You’ve Earned without Jumping Through Someone Else’s Hoops
Yes. I’m serious. As someone who has helped to create PM competency lists and certifications, I think it’s time you got the inside story. And I think it’s time you certified yourself as a fully competent PM practitioner. This 16-page PDF article reveals:
- The difference between certification and competence
- How certifications are created
- How certifications are sold and acquire power
- The benefits of do-it-yourself PM certification
- Specifically, step-by-step, how you can create your own professional-grade, thoroughly defensible PM certification
- (Again… Yes, I’m serious. Quite serious.)

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.
