What becoming PMP certified means to me

There is a point in many Project Manager’s careers where they are considered certified “Project Manager Professional” (PMP®) according to the world’s leading professional associations for project management; Project Management Institute (PMI®). This certification takes time, dedication, experience and mentored guidance to see it through and should not be taken lightly. The title of PMP® after my name is something I have been striving toward for years. With the guidance that the ImageSource family has provided along with the experience through ILINX implementations, I am now merely a few weeks away from achieving my goals rather than years. I have heard that the upcoming test is going to be difficult, tricky and challenging, but I know that with the support of my mentors at ImageSource and the knowledge I have gained through ECM technologies, I will pass with flying colors.

Oh No, My Dad’s a Project Manager

I’ve used skills developed as a project manager to deliver multimillion dollar projects, develop an award winning airport management team, and even organize household tasks. One of my friends, nicknamed “Bubba,” also uses what he’s learned as a project manager–to raise his children.

Every day he and his wife evaluate their nine year old daughter and twelve year old son using an Allowance Compliance Matrix. The matrix covers whether or not they’ve cleaned the kitchen,  living room, and their own bedrooms; completed their homework, and are ready on time for school. Full completion of tasks results in a full allowance. Failure to complete one or more items means their pay is docked.

Her contributions to Project Management, and the PM community are and will continue to be  immense.

IIBA Certification – Is it Worth it for PMP Certified Project Managers

As a PMP certified Project Manager in the Enterprise Content Mangement area I am interested in hearing from other Project Managers who have also gone through the International Institute of Business Analysis process to get an IIBA Business Analyst Certification.  As Project Managers in the ECM area, Business Analysis is a large function of the work we perform on projects.

I have been hearing more and more about this certification. I have also done some research on the IIBA certification process from their website:

International Institute of Business Analysis

A local chapter of IIBA is just forming in my area and I plan to become a member so I can gain more insight into the program.  I did this same thing when I joined my local PMI chapter when I first entered into the PMP program.

I would love to hear from any project managers or even those who have gone through the program in reference to the value of the certification and whether it is worth the time and effort to get the certification?
