Upcoming Webinars

How to be a Rock Star Project Manager on Digital Transformation
Jan 8, 2020 2:00:00 PM EST (UTC-5)

Presenter: Tony Saldanha
Digital Transformation is the #1 priority for boards and CEOs. It's a $1.7 trillion industry in 2019. And yet 70% of all digital transformations fail. Why? And what can a project manager do about it?

The Agile Enterprise: Managing Financial Aspects in Agile Projects
Jan 10, 2020 9:00:00 AM EST (UTC-5)

Presenter: Stelian ROMAN
Agile is sometimes introduced as a cheaper way of delivering projects, products, and services. Unlike the traditional approach of measuring the value delivered based on the planned deliverables, the budget spent, and meeting the critical milestones, Agile doesn't and shouldn't track the delivery in the same way. Agile is a new approach, and traditional project finance management may not be relevant or can become an impediment to agility. Agile is or should be based on trust, and in an Agile organization, most of the financial planning and reporting should not be necessary. However, very few organizations have the necessary conditions to abolish tight financial management. This webinar will propose a few financial management approaches for Agile projects, highlighting the necessity as well as the challenges of each of the proposed models.

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.
