The impact and importance of technical certifications: The management view

Throughout history the success (or failure of any technology has always been directly linked to the specific knowledge and skills of the people putting the technology to work. This is as true today for information technology as it was for the wheel some 6,000 years ago. According to a Cisco Whitepaper released 2017, for the individual practitioner, technical certifications accomplish validation  of benchmarked technical knowledge and skills, demonstrate strong commitment to select technical job roles and related responsibilities and drive continual advancement through timely re-certification, pursuit of multiple complementary certifications, or both. In the summer of 2016, Cisco and survey firm Illuminas partnered on the execution of interviews aimed at pinpointing the current and future value of technical certifications in the mind of the technology manager. According to their findings show that the impact of technical certifications:

  • 54% improve quality of tech-driven services aimed at employees and customers
  • 48% enable efficient operations
  • 46% increase flexibility of staff trained in multiple areas
  • 41% boost employee engagement and retention

And the list goes on. The one particular impact that stood out is that 22% found that technical certifications reduced costs associated with IT projects.
