I got the same confusion. If anyone has done this please share your views or if you have something to add, please enlighten.
You may look at specialized certifications for management roles in technology industry rather than a generic one.
As we are observing a shift in IT industry in India, where more and more product based technology firms are emerging, profiles like Product Management, Product Sales and Marketing, Product Architects is quite high in demand and scope is only going to increase as iSPIRT foresee software technology products as the next 100 Billion dollars market on the top of current 100 billion dollar Indian IT industry.
I am working in an IT firm with 2.5 years of work experience. Will this certification (considering its cost which is around 2.5 lakhs) be useful in promotions/performance appraisal???
Not much in terms of knowledge but definately good point to add to your CV.It will give a extra point to sell yourself in lateral interview or differntiate yourself in performance appraisal.
