This blog post is on the Benefits of P.M.P Certification for IT Project Managers.
PMP has become a very important certification today, even the project managers who are skeptical of certifications agree that the creation of credentials like the PMP and Prince 2 have helped unify the profession by creating a common language and standard frameworks for project managers to use when executing projects. And according to PMI’s and PWC’s respective research, having a common language and standard processes improves project performance.
The skeptics also agree that even though a certification does not necessarily make a project manager better than a non-certified professional, project managers can still benefit personally and professionally from the training and study required to earn a credential. “Any time you invest in yourself focusing on your profession is good time spent,” says Spivey. “You’re going to get better at what you do.”
That appears to be true for the certified project managers at IBM. Del Grosso of IBM says they tend to be rated higher on their performance evaluations than non-certified project managers, but he doesn’t have data that explains exactly why. He suspects that certified project managers may receive better performance reviews because their projects turn out better than non-certified project managers, but IBM’s data doesn’t explicitly link certifications to better project outcomes. Certified project managers’ higher rankings on performance reviews may also stem from their internal drive to be high performers, which led them to seek out certification in the first place. “The best project managers inside IBM are certified project managers,” he contends.
Project managers who certifications might even earn higher salaries than non-certified project managers. According to the PMI’s salary survey, project managers who hold the PMP certification earn an average of 9.4 percent more than non-certified project managers.
