The Project Management Certification question: Discussion with Dawn Mahan | Video

The Project Management Certification question: Discussion with Dawn Mahan | Video

One of the commonest questions I get is the Project Management Certification question: ‘should I, or shouldn’t I?’ So, in this video, I discuss the question with Dawn Mahan, of PMOtraining.com.

So, I have a conversation with Dawn about The Project Management Certification Question: Should you or shouldn’t you? And, if so, which PM certification should you go for.

This video is safe for viewing in the workplace.

This is learning, so, sit back and enjoy

Dawn Mahan

Dawn Mahan is an experienced Program and Project Manager. She founded and runs PMOTraining.com.

Dawn is a Project Management educator. And her edge is the facilitated simulation events she offers her clients.

By using gamification, she has made the 750-plus pages of the 6th edition of the PMI’s PMBOK guide highly accessible. She has thought deeply and clearly about what matters in PMI’s principal certifications.

That’s why I wanted to speak with her about the wider questions around Project Management Certification in general.

Should you do it?

And if so, which certification is right for you?

What Kit does a Project Manager Need?

I asked Project Managers in a couple of forums what material things you need to have, to do your job as a Project Manager. They responded magnificently. I compiled their answers into a Kit list. I added my own.
