These materials are FRESHLY WRITTEN from the angle of the 6th Edition of the PMBoKGuide - So with the NEW focus on Trends and Tailoring and Agile dimensions integral. Unlike the many 4th edition courses updated for the 5th edition and then updated again for 6th edition. These materials also follow PMI's Exam Content Outline to support your understanding of the increasingly common "What should you do next" type questions.

The 6th Edition becomes the basis for all future exams on 26th March 2018.

Why MORE? (and what down-side?) Two reasons:-

  • First the career value after passing the exams besides job mobility and pay-rises is using the tools and techniques. This course aims to ensure you have the understanding to be able to use the examined knowledge not just spout it in an exam - although that is crucially important.
  • Second the exams are wide ranging beyond the PMBoKG. To have the best chance requires broad coverage and everyone's exam will vary in where it tests you. We have to cover it all but you won't be examined on it all (if only you could predict what to safely omit!)

After years of teaching exam prep I've found that CAPM candidates need the ground-up view of the tools BUT that PMP candidates often find studying for the exam reminds them (or informs them for the first time!) how the tools can make projects easier and less uncertain - thus we cover the full Exam Content Outline at practitioner level.

Many of us get into project management by accident and follow a 'common sense approach'. That is pragmatic and works most of the time BUT the tools DO help when used with a less text-book appreciation.

The down-side is there is a lot of material to cover; you can be selective in how deeply you study the background material - where it is familiar then go faster. Where its unfamiliar the depth is there. My materials are concentrated and intense. they are designed to give you career long guidance. I've yet to find a way to make them short and light and comprehensive. As such I lean towards suggesting your read some sections more than once to become comfortable. Its like riding a bicycle or starting to play a complex game like Assassin's Creed - You have to get past the falling off/ gaining familiarity stage to enjoy the benefits. Remember that video can be played at 2x first time through :-)

Revision Log

Status - very FIRST draft on 30 Jan 2018 - Slides not finalised nearly 700 included, Less than 10 exam questions so far, zero feedback, zero cost

  • 1st/ 2nd-Feb VnB - Resolving some broken links mechanics and duplicated contents
  • 5th Feb - Vn C - I think links now in right places and mechanics works so a stable platform for content refinements - I don't expect to update to D before the weekend 10-Feb). D will be a MAJOR content improvement. After D I think 1st set of Exam Questions then Video
