How to earn your stripes as a project management professional

Beyond all the camaraderie-building slogans and factory floor speeches, project management is more of a science than art. Yes, it takes a certain confidence and willingness to make tough decisions. But boiled down to its essence, a good project manager needs to do one thing: Get every member of the team on the same page.

For many companies, that page comes from a playbook, and it’s called the Project Management Book of Knowledge. It’s designed to streamline any workforce into a bullet train that speeds efficiently towards any goal, and it will change the way you work.

Mastering the 6th edition of that handbook doesn’t happen overnight, but will happen a lot quicker with the Project Management Professional Certification Training Suite.

This online bundle of courses are the comprehensive guides to the necessary rules for effective workflow, as laid out by the Project Management Institute.

In less organized workplaces, what you have are series of people working in different departments, each with their own agendas. Bring them together on a project and those agendas tend to clash. The best practices laid out in the PMBoK rethink that structure, giving everybody incentive to do their part.

The centerpiece course of the Training Suite is a boot camp in those practices that spans more than 40 hours. Some of it will be familiar to anyone who has worked on a project using Agile methodology, which informs much of PMI’s philosophy.

The 6th Edition PMBoK adds a few new tweaks, such as an emphasis on “managing project knowledge,” or making sure lessons learned from previous projects get communicated through the company.

There are also refresher courses to look over once you’re done with the exhaustive main course. They include a fundamentals course on execution of objectives, plus exam training for both the PMI-ACP (Agile Certified Practitioner) and CAPM (Certified Associate in Project Management).

And mind you, these aren’t just titles. Certified Project Managers report earning more on average and should be able to work for any company under a diverse set of circumstances.

You can get lifetime access to the Project Management Professional Certification Training Suite now for a full 96% off the retail price.
