Hello All,

I would like to know more information about different certifications like PMP, PRINCE2, ITIL.
1) Practical comparison of relevancy of these certifications.
2) Which certification is better suited if I am planning for a jump from Technical side to Management side almost immediately.
3) Which among this is worth the effort in terms of time and money (Effort comparison)
4) I dont have much project management experience now So which certification will suit me the best considering the best value.

Thanks in Advance,

Sainath's Advice on Thursday, January 1, 2015 :

Please find detailed information on the certifications below :

1. PMP (Project Management Professional)

Governing body : PMI, USA 

Core focus : PMP is a very relevant certification if your goal is to become a Project Manager in future. You need to formally attend a training session and prepare for the exam and then become a certified PMP. Key point is that PMP is very relevant if you are planning to go onsite for US based projects.

2. Prince2

Governing body : OGC, UK

Core focus : This also targets project management, however, it varies significantly from the PMP. This is more relevant if you are planning to take up UK based projects.


Governing body : OGC, UK

Core focus : This mainly targets the IT service delivery function and not project management.

This is more relevant if you are planning to become a Service Delivery Manager.
