Can PRINCE2® increase your salary?

Over the last few days I have had a number of Facebook messages asking what kind of salary premium can I expect to receive if I am PRINCE2® accredited ?

PayScale.com list the following information:-

Average PRINCE2 salaries

PRINCE2 key stats

What these stats don’t tell you is that without PRINCE2 you won’t even get your CV on the hiring manager’s desk as part of the pre-screening process that professional companies run these days.

If however you are lucky enough to get a Project Management role without PRINCE2 you have to worry about the organisations Project Management maturity. You are very likely to be working in an environment with the following characteristics:-

  • Chaotic
  • Stressful
  • High Project Failure rates
  • High Project Management Staff turnover rates
  • Long hours dominated by email and Instant Message as the primary project control method
  • Culture where fact is a poor substitute for spin.

I don’t have stats for the above but have been involved in a number of project management team rescues for some large companies and the above list I have seen commonly sighted in many HR reports and 360 reviews.

So don’t waste anytime get started with  your PRINCE2 qualification.
