Tony,

I need to make a business case to management so they agree to financially support my project management training (money, time). Iâm interested to hear what others have experienced when formalizing their PM skills. For example, was it difficult to persuade management, what impact did formal training in project management have on your work, what costs are incurred long term (PMI certification, for example, must be renewed every 3 years so some form of regular PM trainings are involved).

Cheers,
jen

Hi Jennifer,

I can't speak on behalf of the PMP program or the alternative methods you found. My question to you is, if you already are involved in projects and are leading projects, why wouldn't you want to apply that time forwards your PMP credential so you can get something out of the work you're already doing? Project planning often falls in the TechCom/BA lap anyway.

In this industry every certificate, specialty, and credential is useful for opening conversations with people you don't know. They may also give you negotiating advantage. Long term success comes from your ability to hit quickly and achieve great results consistently.

-Tony
