Project Management

Besides PMP, what other professional development opportunities are out there for Director and VP levels? I'm researching organizational leadership and operations certificate and grad programs, too.

I have been a PM for many years. I would not get my PMP (or if I did I would not tell anyone about it unless an emergency!) I would focus on running larger programs. If you have managed $5M go for a $10M program. Switch to new technologies, go offshore and meet teams, experience new things. That is what I would do in my opinion.

Following- I’ve heard time and time again PMP isn’t worth it. Currently managing around $15M. Any specific technologies or project types to get my hands on?

Thank you! This just adds fuel to the fire of the to PMP or not PMP question! I've been pretty adamantly against it for a very long time. Recently though I wonder if it's inevitable. Thank you for giving me hope that I can avoid it because I have better real life experience.

I don't have much experience but I see people care about serving as board member for non-profit. Is that only for MBA applicants or is is good for consulting jobs too?

Just got a 2nd antibody test. My 1st test and my 2nd test were both positive. Assuming the test each has a 10% rate for false positives, I assume the likelihood that I don’t have antibodies is less than 1%. Still wary of the results, but definitely feel a lot less anxious about Covid now. Bought my test directly from Quest and my insurance will reimburse. Had mid flu like symptoms (fatigue, fever/chills, sore throat) for 2-3 days, and nasal congestion/loss of taste for a week.
