And then i moved from PM to MC. 5 years on and still enjoying MC.

By the way, this is not to discourage any PMP takers, but is a perspective that i have. Industry has moved from waterfall to Agile. Its all about being SCRUM masters now.
I agree. I just moved to a Big4 and they were more interested in my ITIL and that PRINCE2 was a bonus. I have a CSM as well, however I have been asked to also take a SAFE 4 Agile certification training and exam which they will sponsor ofcourse. The time I was looking out I saw a lot of vacancies which mentioned they just need PMP trained people and certification is not a must. Now I have a different thought in mind. Should I do a distance MBA or not

Does anyone know any good PMP classroom training providers in Ahmedabad?
I am new to this place and this info would be of great help.

Does PMP carry any weight these days?

Finally renewed my PMP certification with 51 days left in the suspension period. Was close !


I have been using webinars from The Great IT professional for the PDU's. Chanced upon a mail from the site for a discount coupon. $39 for the year instead of $199. Grabbed it - now will close out the 60 PDU's in the next few months.


Fairly good content there.


greatpro.org
code is M2020
valid till 31-march.

Thank you for this insight. I also renewed mine after I received a suspension mail. I was overdue by a day. I have used the same code as you have shared and got the PDU videos. I think its a good deal and appreciate your sharing that.
regards

About 7 years ago I had asked whether we can do without managers in India, and many said no.

But thanks to COVID19, it may be happening now.

That's the peril of getting old. I can remember stuff from long ago, but can't remember which movie I saw on netflix yesterday.

But to the topic. I started a new company in Feb 2020, just before Covid19 hit the whole world. So I never got to setup a physical office. And now everyone prefers virtual office, thanks to cloud servers and WFH. So I am managing everything while sitting from home.
