Need for trained PMs


Even though off late there has been lot of emphasis on groom lead in project management, especially if they are graduating from technical domains. However, on the contrary it some times is limited to going through company processes, procedures and project learning. There ain’t many organization who have a matured and evolving framework, leave alone training programs to transition technical leads in to effective Project managers. Most organizations still like to depend on the job training or learning by experimenting often jeopardizing ongoing live projects. Clearly there is a crying need to think and prepare a robust pipeline of trained Project Managers to execute ever challenging projects. To resolve the very problem PMI came up with CAPM & PMP credentials. I am not saying that these credentials are synonymous of capability and maturity but at least they definitely add value in making PMs aware of global practices and expectations.
