This course was recorded with the 5th Ed. in my hands. Since its about how YOU read the PMBoK-G and you'll read the 6th Ed not the 5th Ed it makes no difference to you except the reference to Part 2 on page number 417 is now Part 2 on page 541.
Everything else is still relevant, current advise.
If you have looked at the PMBoK-G you'll know that reading it from front to back is confusing. Your experience may be that you have found reading it without guidance is completely useless - that happens to plenty of smart people. For over a decade I've been helping people see the PMBoK_G's great insights. My experience will help you quickly learn how to read it and know the story it hides BEFORE you start reading it.
My work as a contract PM spans many organisations where mostly we use industry vocabulary so my PMBoK-G explanations use your familiar jargon whether agile or engineering, IT or corporate change.
READING THE PMBoK_G IS TOUGH; GET YOURSELF A GOOD GUIDE
Once you start reading with understanding you have to know how to capture that knowledge so you can easily show it in the exams - This course shows you how to easily create, from memory that golden key that unlocks exam success. Exam success unlocks promotions and pay-rises.
Many project management roles require a PMI credential before you can apply for them despite all the real-life experience you have. PLUS PMIs exams are expensive.

(*PMI require you to have 35hrs of certified training in PM - this course helps you pick wisely).

Simon has 30 years project management experience, the last 15 of which have been mixed with training others in everything from the basics to advanced topics
Simon's teaching skills are enhanced by his own experience; "During those 30 years I've managed to get it wrong and get it right and it is those lessons learned that I pass to others. I take the guidance out of the books and into use in the workplace. Some of my teachings are a pragmatic mix of approaches to real-world project management and the rest are exam focussed. Both have there uses."
