The Value of PMP Certifications



Project managers are faced with the need to understand multiple disciplines and skillsets in order to lead a variety of teams through concept to completion of any given project. Project Manager roles have continued to grow in recent years and technology has empowered PMs to provide more insight into each project phase, making problem-solving and critical thinking the most valuable ability for project managers to possess. There are many ways that people can gain the crucial skills required of a project manager and according to Gerry Mecca, former CIO of Dr Pepper Seven-Up Bottling Group and former VP of IT for Keurig Dr Pepper, none are as effective as a PMP certification.
