Why Should My Employer Insist I Get PMP Certified?
Not all projects are successful. While companies and organizations need to reflect on the rightness and viability of the project, they should insist that the project manager assigned to carry it out is properly trained and certified.
Generally, the results of poorly planned projects include
- Make a product, service, or result that no one wants,
- Order wrong product, service, or result,
- Deliver wrong product, service, or result,
- Failure to receive, inventory, store, and control product, service, or result,
- Failure to use correct product service or result, or
- Failure to deliver necessary quality or appreciate the risk.
Or, put another way
- Organizations lose an average of US$109 million for every US$1 billion spent on projects1
- Only 64% of projects meet their goals2
- High-performing organizations successfully complete 89% of projects, while low performers only complete 36% successfully1
- Low performers waste nearly 12 times more resources than high-performing organizations1
