If you're wondering whether to take the PMP or PRINCE2 certification, I suggest you read Nader Khorrami Rad's superbly detailed review, which has everything you can possibly need to know.

Thanks, I will check it out at lunch.

Straight off the bat, my thoughts are that the study time required is a stark contrast between the two (PMP being a lot more).

The other point is that UK employers seem to value Prince2 more than PMP. To me, the PMP is far harder to attain and demonstrates a greater breath of knowledge. Putting it simply, the PMP is more valuable.

A renowned UK project recruitment company (I am trying to avoid using their name) said that employers look for a project management qualification rather than the value the certification brings.

Thanks,
Kit
