Description

Dollars might be refundable if you pick a CAPM / PMP study course that just repeats the book but your study hours are not.

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. Surely setting out on a high cost, high impact endeavour should have the best guidance you can find? This course tells you what a good 35hr training course* will sound and feel like. (*PMI require you to have 35hrs of certified training in PM - this course helps you pick wisely).

KNOW WHAT A GOOD COURSE WILL LOOK AND SOUND LIKE

Find out how to read the PMBoK-G with this course and save tens if not HUNDREDS of hours of frustration in your personal exam preparation journey.

This course ensures you 

  • find out where to focus BEFORE you invest your non-returnable time.
  • understand what the big picture story in the PMBoK-G gives you as a framework.
    • When you've finished this course you're future study will be very much easier as you'll have a framework to add that ocean of detailed facts into.
  • know how to evaluate potential study resources so you can comit your time only to the best and avoid those that don't have great instructional design - there are a lot of poor resources out there :-(
  • have the best change to pass the PMP or CAPM Project Management exams in the minimum study time with maximum confidence

In this course you'll get our completely UNIQUE "PMBoK-G on-a-page" overview and detailed guidance on how to create **THE most important** exam Aide-Memoir. This course's practical element is your ability to sit down in your exam and memory-dump the PMBoK-G's core process model from memory.

We've covered a lot. Learning is about reflection as much as fact acquisition. Here we reflect on the overview again to see how the detail fits within it.

This lesson repeats how the Project LifeCycle (PLC) the KAs (Knowledge Areas) and PGs (Process Groups) ebb and flow in intensity across the project time-line.

Now you'll see how with that page in your memory AND understanding dissolves otherwise impossible questions to be answerable in seconds - This question should take under 15 seconds

The culmination - If you aren't already drawing the page 423 table of Process Groups and Knowledge Areas then now is time to start. 'Brain-dumping' this from memory at exam start is a key to passing the CAPM and PMP exams (and its a very helpful mental model to have in your head when really managing a project day to day!)

Use the diagram in the pmbok-g 1st, then repeat from memory and complete by reference to the guide, then repeat from memory again till you can do it completely.

Then leave it 24hrs and do from memory but this time put the baselines on - add by referencing the book any you forget

Then leave it 72 hrs and do from memeory with baselines and in KA/PG flow like requirements documents and scope statement between 5.2, 5.3 and 5.4

As you go add Tools and Techniques but that is probably the contents of another course - let me know if you's like something to help with T&Ts :-)

Taking the PMI's exams is about understanding what the book means A crucial part of demonstrating your understanding starts with REMEMBERING the PMBoK_G's contents.

Project Manager and Trainer

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."

 Simon lives in Edinburgh Scotland with his wife Lea and sometimes their children Jessica and Toby - when they are home.
