    Is It Advisable to Do Both?

    Many people view the PRINCE2® and PMP® certifications as different, which is why there is a battle between the two certifications.

    PMP® is related to the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully manage a project and its delivery.

    PRINCE2® is focused mainly on the processes and the framework to execute specific types of projects in controlled environments successfully.

    Therefore, it is advisable that you do both of these certifications as it helps in the development of the professional's excellent project management skills.

    There may be a few drawbacks to this-

    • Conflicting language: The two courses use different terminologies, which can be confusing at first. For example, project charter in PMP® is what is known as project brief in PRINCE2®.

    • Different Techniques: Some techniques differ vastly, such as the categorization of risk.

    Conclusion

    The certification you choose should depend on your job prospects and the region you are working in. PMP® and PRINCE2® are not competing for credentials in all regions. A professional would benefit from the skills and knowledge that both of these certification offers.
