3 Reasons Why You Should Be A Certified International Project Manager




Project management certifications are in demand by companies and recruiters alike. In the competitive and complex market, project management certifications hold a vital role in ensuring you stand out from the competition and increase your chances of getting hired. Gaining certification has many benefits, such as a salary bump and gaining certain important traits that increases project success. With the many types of project management certifications today, here are the reasons why you should get a certification as an international project manager.


  • Increased demand

As business continues to internationalize and the strategic intent of global organisations is to maximise business opportunities wherever they may present, the discipline of project management continues to grow in importance and the role of the Project Manager becomes ever more crucial to successful delivery and achievement of these stated aims and goals.

International project managers are individuals who can seamlessly integrate into different cultures – who understands their values, beliefs and normative behaviour, who can harness the expertise and abilities of team members, who motivates, empathizes and understands local conditions and is able to forge mutually beneficial and long-lasting relationships with relevant stakeholders.


  • Acquire a unique set of skills

International projects have several issues that are exclusive to them that local projects do not have. This includes understanding the terms in international commercial contracts. For example, there are different classifications of terms and conditions, different forms of liability, understanding indemnity and understanding the difference between novation and assignment of contracts. International projects also require the project manager to consider the cultural differences when dealing with negotiations and being able to effectively manage international teams. Therefore, a unique set of knowledge is required to be an expert in international project management.


  • Increased chances of project success

Employers are increasingly looking for certified project managers because the presence of a certified project manager on a project will increase the odds of project success. PWC found that “higher-performing projects are significantly more likely to be staffed with certified project managers and 80 percent of projects classified as high-performing use a certified project manager.”
