Why You Should Get Certified in Project Management

We’ve all heard the advice given to us, and most of us followed the advice to a T. Go to school. Get an education. Graduate from college. Get a great-paying job that turns into your career. Unfortunately, that advice just doesn’t work the same as it used to. In this dog-eat-dog world of business, one needs to stand out from the crowd and not just blend in with it.

With project management, companies no longer just designate the most senior people as their project managers. In today’s world, success is what counts. Companies want to build systematic practices for project management.
