Come and hear from Brett in person at PD Day South 2017!
Brett Boghigian wears many hats at Indigo. Chemical engineer by training and current Head of Project Management, a position that puts him in charge of the stage-gate process from product inception through to final delivery, Brett also serves as Facilities and Operations Manager, and hence has been instrumental in the relocation and renovation of company headquarters in Boston.
The goal of obtaining the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is a worthwhile, yet challenging pursuit each project manager must decide on obtaining. You might wonder, “What’s the point of getting the PMP? I’m dy working in the field? Why go through the effort?” My answer to those questions can best be addressed with an illustration. Suppose you need to go to the doctor’s office. You schedule an appointment with a receptionist and she asks if you’d like to see either the doctor or a board-certified doctor? Without hesitation, you would most likely select the board-certified doctor.
Why? Being certified implies one is more official, has sought industry training, and has the expertise in the field. It is for those reasons why the PMP certification is so important for project managers to obtain.
