In conclusion, we believe that the "LPM" (Licensed Project Manager) or "CPM" (Chartered Project Manager) could be a worthwhile path for the project management profession to follow, assuming the issuing entity is agreed upon and standardized. In doing so, project managers would be given both a professional "identity" and the recognition enjoyed by many other professions (examples of which we have stated above). As with all change, there are positives and risks to consider, but the benefits may outweigh the negatives. The authors would welcome people's thoughts on this subject.
