Linked below is a discussion on the “best” certification for project managers and it got me thinking.

What is the value of a piece of paper?

As a professional project manager I know the impact of have certain letters on my resume.

Which is better? A piece of paper that says you passed a test or real experience? Prestige or practicality?

People who fall into the former used to be called “paper” certified. I never valued playing the letters game until I started working for an organization that loves the “alphabet soup” thing.

I do have some letters after my name. I’m entitled to use those because I earned them through study and application.

But, really, can we sum up a person in two or three letters? MD, JD, PhD? These letters carry weight. But are all letters equal?

You have to judge for yourself.
