Sad, but so true...... This is, IMPO, what PMI has done by creating a credential (PMP) based not on demonstrated competency, but on taking a 35 hour course studying sample questions, then taking a 200 question, multiple choice exam, of which only 175 actually count, with a passing grade of 106/175 or 62%.

Who in their right mind could possible accept that process standing as evidence of being a "professional anything"?

Would you get on the next commercial jet knowing the pilot had gotten his/her license having never demonstrated he/she could take off and land a plane successfully?

The whole thing is absurd and IMPO, those of us who are serious practitioners should put an end to what amounts to little more than a scam. False and misleading advertising.

Reminds me of that old rock 'n roll song, "Taking care of business". It depends on what you're managing, and of course, it's all in the wrist.....

This is what happens when people have no entrepreneur skills of self-direction.

Titles instead of compensation..., unpaid extra work to give one a chance to *grow*.

Cubical monkeys are a sad lot indeed.
