The PMI-ACP pilot has concluded and the Agile Certified Practitioner certification is officially one month old. The numbers are in! Per PMI Today, January 2012 concluded with 542 PMI-ACPs. Not too shabby for its first month. The PMP is still PMI’s shining star, at 4047 new PMPs. What surprised me were the numbers of PMI’s other certifications. Only 11 people got the PMI-SP in January. It makes me wonder, what is the PMI-SP certification’s value and longevity in the PMI ecosystem? I ask because the PMI-ACP reached a number in one month that took the other certification a few years.
And so it begins. Will PMI-ACP be the next PMP? What do you think?
