Imagine this. You’ve been working on agile projects for years and decide one day that the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® credential would be just the thing to perk up your resume.

It seems that certifications are under attack. In the past several months I’ve heard that corporations are no longer interested in having their employees obtain any certifications. This rant is not limited to the PMP®. Indeed, it is said that companies are now solely interested in skills training. On one level this makes sense. Why should a company care whether their employees are certified project managers, business analysts or Scrum Masters so long as they are able to perform those functions? What good are certifications, anyway?
