PM-Partners' Mike Austin lists ten reasons why the PRINCE2 certification attainment alone does not a project manager make. Aside from other AXELOS courses like MSP, MoP, MoR and Agile Project Management, your career path in project management is dictated by more than just the PRINCE2 Practitioner we've all been sold as the ultimate prerequisite. though it doesn't hurt, it is neither the be all, end all, too.
