Whether you are part of a construction project using classical Predictive project management or a member of a small, self-directed team on an IT project using Agile methodology, we've got you covered with this Project Management program. Or maybe you are somewhere in between. We cover Adaptive techniques too! Learn from subject matter experts that have been there, done that! Our instructors are PMPs with a wealth of experience in Predictive and Agile worlds. They will gladly share their knowledge, successes, and failures, and will invite participants to share theirs.
This program uses materials with up-to-date examples and questions from both engineering, construction and IT projects, and time has been built into the program for live discussion on related subjects, including time for participant’s current challenges. The program is based on the PMI’s PMBOK 7th Edition and Agile Practice Guide. Regardless of which environment you work in, proper project management will increase the likelihood of successful project outcomes and a satisfied customer. When you can radically reduce time to market, you move the organization quicker to success!
This 35-hour course helps to prepare you for the PMP® exam. Participants will receive an easy-to-read text, workbook, optional online quizzes, tests, and a mock exam.
