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:-
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:-
- 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.
