The rise & rise of PMP®

Over the past decade, the Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential has become one of the most globally respected and coveted marks of professional distinction. This article discusses the factors driving the PMP® credential's rise to prominence, as well as the reasons why companies around the world are encouraging--and even requiring--their employees to obtain PMP certification. The article also explains why the PMP credential improves the project manager's market value and outlines PMI's efforts to help project manager's in countries such as India and China--in countries that are growing economically--obtain PMP certification. The article closes with information on PMI's possible revamping of the PMP credential, an effort that would establish accreditation to more accurately support the needs of practitioners working at different levels of expertise.
