Are Microsoft Certifications Causing Projects to Fail? with Julie Yack and Julian Sharp – YouTube

#85. Join me with Julie Yack and Julian Sharp as we  discuss my question, “Are Microsoft certifications causing projects to fail?” Julie Yack is a founder and the chief operations officer at Colorado Technology Consultants. She’s an author, a trainer, a solution architect, and an MVP. Julian Sharp is the founder of Ready 365. He recently received an MVP award and is best known as a prolific Microsoft trainer. Over the past 10 or 15 or 20 years, he’s trained thousands of people in Dynamics 365 and Power Platform technologies. The training and certification opportunities for everyone building Microsoft business applications have never been better. 

Our discussion covers:

• Whether the time spent on attaining and maintaining Microsoft business applications certifications, is crowding out the amount of time that people have for other types of learning needed to have successful projects.
• Where to start to embark on a certification refresh of your own resume.
• An overview of what is involved in making a certification from Microsoft’s perspective.
• Why you need more than just Microsoft certifications to build amazing business applications.
