Pretty Much Pointless from a PMP

That’s what I was thinking. What about scrum? I’m not in a technical role but I see it often in qualifications for projects and seems relevant?

Scrum is good, just know that without some actual experience in agile, it’s going to be hard get a scrum master role. Use it to augment project/program management experience.

Thank you everyone for validating my thoughts. I came from the military to Deloitte and have seen it on some preferred qualifications on projects. I initially didn’t think it was worth the trouble so thank you all for replying!

I’m trying to find my “niche” since I’ve only done pmo type stuff on my project

Same here! Any tips on how to find your “niche” ?

Here’s another perspective - it’s “worth” it because it provides the project credibility and helps sell more work if you have certs. There’s was also a post couple days ago saying Deloitte pays you for it (or pays for it) so why wouldn’t you if you’re niche is PMO?

Haha yeah I totally get that people THINK it’s valuable and often include it as preferred. My point is just that anyone who thinks that does not actually understand the value in having it - just find a smart insecure ambitious person and they’ll aggressively deliver for you, regardless of PMP very. Just want to avoid someone getting it and thinking they’re actually going to improve skills from the content.

Hey team - would appreciate your feedback I'm currently a SC at Guidehouse making ~$100k. Very bored but considered a strong employee and on manager track. I have an offer to join D GPS as an SC with 20-30% more pay. The work would be similar. If I stay at Guidehouse I would likely apply for an MBA in Fall 2021. But if I join D, that would delay an year and I would apply in Fall 2022. What would you recommend from MBA and career sense? At this point, I'd be applying for an MBA at age 31/32.
