What is the best route to go?
Posted: Sat 14 Mar 2015 10:49 am
I am trying to start my training off and set me on track. However, I am unsure what the best way to go is. Should I do PRINCE2 or an ILM course. I am not sure which is best or are they totaly different.

Your question is quite broad, and you don't say what you'd like to achieve. If you are looking to become a project manager or project team member, then PRINCE2 is relevant. If you are looking for a more holistic management role, then ILM might be better.
A project manager has a broad role and needs many leadership and management skills. Areas such as team-leading and effective team member are relevant to project managers and people that work in project teams.
I did a general management degree before becoming a project manager. It has served me well and given me a good understanding across a broad range of management disciplines. I later took some project management specific qualifications.
Think about what you want to achieve in your career and tailor the training to get you there. Create a career plan using the SMART Goals principle.
I hope this helps.
