    Certification programmes in vocational qualifications have exploded in the past 10 years or so, and the project management world is no different.

    In the US, the Project Management Institute’s “PMP” qualification probably leads to way. In the UK we have a similar qualifications from our own “Association of Project Management”, for example “APMP” – we also have Prince2 qualifications, which is primarily the UK Government’s project management methodology.

    But here’s my question: do you think that having a certificated project manager makes a real difference to the project or otherwise?
