As we continue to work on our next online adventure, How to apply the PMBOK(r) Guide in the real world, we decided to give you a glimpse, a sneak peek into what is coming and in applying the PMBOK Guide.
Applying the PMBOK Guide
Here we share a part of Learning Goal 4. We are sharing three learning missions, including one on tailoring. Click on the image to access, you will need to register on the PM Quest site. You can claim 2 PDU for completing this Sneak Peek.
We believe that our approach in this online course will challenge the thinking of many professionals and PMPs. What we include in this sneak peek, is an example of our approach, including a substantial discussion on tailoring and some of the common misunderstandings on tailoring.
By the way, the information that we present includes a blend of text, images, audio messages, and videos.

Let us talk about agile, and Agile, in the project management world. This is a series of short videos about Debunking the myths about Agile Project Management. At this time, we have ten videos, and we will add them to this post, as we go live with them. Continue reading →

Click on the picture to access the video and keep in mind, it is 3-hour but you can claim 3 PDU for it if you a PMI certificate holder.

The video is via this link. It is 27 minutes but because it was a live event; the sound quality is not best.
In this post, I am sharing a playlist on our Applied Project Management by SUKAD YouTube channel. This playlist is about PMO, OPM, and related topics and includes a session recorded in a workshop a few years back. If you watch the whole thing, you should be able to claim 4 PDU with PMI.

You can refer to Project Management beyond Waterfall and Agile for more information. Continue reading →

With this article, we continue with the context and establish the background for the case study.
Once again, how to apply project management in the real world? We will continue with PM4Youth and focus on applied project management, using a project-based learning approach. However, before we get into the case study (next post), we will share a quick lesson with my boys. The first lesson was to help my eldest son Sumer to plan the next stage of his University Project.
How to apply project management in the real world? Recently, we published an article on Can Project Management be Simplified …, and apparently, that article has been popular and well received. Therefore, it is time to build on that success and show that we practice what we preach! This article is the first of a series that we will be publishing over the next few weeks with a focus on PBL, APM, LLL, PM4Y (PM4Youth), and CAMMP™. What do all of these acronyms mean and how are they related? Well, we can start with a hint, they are about applied project management and project-based learning with a focus on project management for youth.
