During this month’s event, Kate Warren, Devex executive vice president, discussed the value of project management certifications. Generally, it’s never a bad thing for your career development to pursue a project management certification, she advised.

Employers are increasingly looking for these certifications when hiring, and some are investing in these trainings for their current employees.
