Project Management Certifications in the digital sphere. Are they necessary? How are they viewed?
 
PMP, CSM, PMI-ACP—The digital world has a love-hate relationship with the alphabet soup that is project management certifications. Larger companies often require formal training while smaller agencies may not even look at a resume of a certified individual. To survive in the digital world you have to serve a lot of masters and keep your resume fresh and flexible. How do you know if certification is something you should pursue? What other options are there for individuals looking to receive training in an atmosphere that is constantly evolving? Is any of this actually applicable in the real world? Cynthia has worked in both the large company and small agency setting navigating these murky waters.
