Hi guys. First of all thanks for being such a good community. Just started the cert world and got the ITIL Foundation this week.

Wanted to ask you about my current goal: I want to manage projects, be in a upper, director role where I can lead a company and make (good) impactful decisions, whereas it is working for someone else or on my own company(ies), since I have a entrepreneur spirit and tons of ideas, but I'd be ok with any.

I was thinking about taking this certs, for now:
- Agile method: SCRUM PSM 1 (short term)
- IT Governance: Cobit 5 Foundation (short term)
- Project Management: PMP (mid term, maybe in a year or so)
- Masters: MBA (mid - long term, starting in 2 years or so)

How do you see it? Please share your comments about your knowledge/experience and advise on what you would remove/add. Thanks!

    PMP requires five years of project management experience. Their definition is pretty loose but if you're new, you might struggle in coming up with five years.

    If you're going for an MBA, once you've taken the project management course you can use that to satisfy the 40 something-odd hours of class training requirement to go for the CAPM, which is like a baby PMP but without the 7500 (5 year) experience requirement. That 7500 hours is only 4500 with a degree.
