Thoughts on Prosci or SHRM-SCP certification? Which would be considered more valuable or highly regarded? Currently focused on Change Management but have a HR background (industry experience / area of study in college).

I agree prosci only has worth if your desire is to be a Change lead, downside is it locks you into just one approach. I would lean toward HRCI (SPHR, GPHR) over SHRM (I have all 3 and CIPD)as it’s got more cache in the market. HRCI is based on body of knowledge, and been there done that, SHRM is based on competencies which makes for nice development plans but only says you have capability not that you have actually done it. CIPD although UK based is much tougher to get and does. Show demonstrated capability, but doesn’t have as much recognition in US, so unless you play globally not worth the effort.

If you want to be a dedicated change leader the prosci, if you want to be a HRBP or more HR focused professional then do shrm-cp. both are valuable but for different reasons

@OP: As MC1 mentions, either certs are valuable but for very different reasons as they support two entirely different career tracks. I think the most important question you need to answer yourself is what do you want to specialize in - is it OCM (managing the people side of transformations) or core HR competencies (ie, HR compliance/labor laws, benefits, recruiting, etc). I would argue that both career tracks coupled with a certification offers plenty of exit opps. That said, because I personally am a change mgmt/culture transformation SME, I do believe you’ll find the pay much more competitive either in consulting or industry with OCM skills than HR. At some point with HR, I feel like you can hit a plateau. On the other hand, HR transformations are becoming much more in demand these days. It’s all relative and the market / industry you’re trying to serve.

I would say out of the two the Prosci but my actual recommendation would be to get a PMP especially since you have the HR background
