Rescheduled: A Billion Dollar Project Health Framework (Part 6): Stakeholder Management
Nov 12, 2019 12:00:00 PM EST (UTC-5)

Presenter: Uri Galimidi
This is in the sixth installment in an 8-part webinar series, A Billion Dollar Project Health Framework, presented by Uri Galimidi. The series covers an advanced yet practical framework which Project Managers can use to assess the health of their projects. The framework consists of eight key project management areas. This webinar covers Stakeholder Management.

 

Painting by Numbers: Understanding Earned Benefit-Value from a Budget View to Benefit Focus
Nov 14, 2019 12:00:00 PM EST (UTC-5)

Presenter: Kik Piney
Rather than simply delivering a quality product, project managers are now expected to take responsibility for ensuring the benefits that the product should provide. Although expectations have moved on, the corresponding tools have not kept pace. This webinar presents a novel and powerful framework by which to extend existing tools into the benefits-delivery space.

 

You May Be Agile, But Are You Disciplined Agile?
Nov 15, 2019 11:00:00 AM EST (UTC-5)

Presenter: Kiron Bondale
Start an online discussion about agile and the divide will become painfully apparent between those agile purists who believe that the only way to deliver value is through Scrum or similar frameworks and those traditionalists who believe that agile was just a passing, failed fad. PMI acquired Disciplined Agile (DA) in late 2019 and many of you are probably wondering what DA is and how it might be relevant to you, especially if you don't lead software development projects. This webinar will provide an overview of DA's pragmatic, choice driven approach to realizing value.

 

All Things Project Management: Navigating PMI’s Knowledge Resources
Nov 19, 2019 12:00:00 PM EST (UTC-5)

Presenters: Shari Rathet, Crystal Sloat, Mary Quill, Mark Krob
In your day-to-day practice of project management, questions often arise and you need to find the answers. PMI has been publishing articles to help you find solutions since the profession was founded; there are over 9000 articles in the Learning Library alone. Let us help you understand the different types of content available and how to access them, how we have recently improved the PMI.org search function and how to make your own contribution to this valuable collection and share your expertise with other practitioners.

PMP EXAM UPDATE 

The last day to take the current exam ends on June 30, 2020.   This time limit was extended.   There are changes to the PMP exam as outlined below.  Additional information is here, https://www.pmi.org/update-center

What is changing?

The PMP is evolving just like the profession – and the new exam will focus on three new domains:

PEOPLE – emphasizing the skills and activities associated with effectively leading a project team

PROCESS – reinforcing the technical aspects of managing a project

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT – highlighting the connection between projects and organization strategy

Content that spans the value spectrum, including predictive, agile and hybrid approaches, will be included across the three exam domains. The best way to understand what is included in the exam is to review the updated Exam Content Outline.
