An IDC study in December 2008 interviewed 1.100 IT-Manager worldwide and presented their results in a publicly available study. Read the result of that study : 
Why trainings and/or certifications ? 

        * Improved skill level of the deployment team.
By engaging in training, deployment teams were able to improve their overall skill level.
Improved skill levels led to improved deployment success as measured by a reduction in time to deploy and reduction in budget overruns

      * Reduction in time to deploy.
With training, organizations were able to complete the deployment on average 15% faster than they would have without training and therefore realize both cost savings from improved system availability and lower costs of system support.

      * Reduction in budget overruns.
Customers were able to improve upon their average deployment project success rate and reduce project budget overruns after engaging in training. 
Trainings and the Return of investment
  
The ROI of technical training is 60% with a break-even point (payback period) of within 12 months.
The more complex the deployment (i.e. the server usage type, the percentage of migrations from older operating systems), the higher the return to the organization on its investment.
Similarly, the higher the cost of the downtime, the higher the return to the organization of its investment in training.

Certification and Performance 
  
*      Organizations with 40-55% of their team members certified performed above the average of all organizations  
*      High-performing data and backup recovery teams spend 21% less time "fixing" problems
*      Certified employees stays 18% longer in the company then other  
*      75% of IT Managers believe that certifications are important to team performance  
*      High-performing teams that focus on high-availability solutions spend 10% less time "fixing" problems  
*      66% of IT Managers believe that certifications improve the level of service  
*      High-performing archiving and retrieval teams spend 28% less time "fixing" problems  
*      55% of the Managers requiring certification when hiring people  
*      High-performing client management teams spend 12% less time "fixing" problems  
*      17% urgent external hiring is lowered  
*      Certification decreases downtime of 18%  
*      Certified teams are 28% more productive

Most of the IT responsibles are confused by the sheer numbers of certifications, what they stand for and how they realte to each other. Microsoft reacted on this by releasing this video (click the graphic to activate the link)
