PMI CVC PMP 2011 Fall Workshop - Framework Talk

I will be presenting on October 15 for the PMI Central Va Chapter during their Fall 2011 PMI Certification Workshop.  My topic will be the Project Management Framework.  My talk goes from 10:00 AM to 11:15 AM and touches on items found in sections 1 & 2, chapters 1, 2, & 3, of the PMBOK, version 4.

I have been presenting this topic for the PMI CVC for about a year.  In my session I will be discussing these topics and more:
  • Projects, Portfolios, and Program
  • Process Groups, Knowledge Areas, and Processes
  • PMO
  • Project Life Cycle vs. Product Life Cycle
  • Stakeholder Management
  • Organizational Structure
Ever wondered how PMI keeps the PMP exam current and relevant?  This year we have also added information of the PMI Role Delineation Study and the Crosswalk.

This workshop is a great way to come up to speed for the PMP exam as well as gain valuable study tips from fellow project managers that have already passed the exam.  The workshop is also a great opportunity to gain the PDUs needed to maintain existing PMP certifications.  Best of all, attendees receive copies of all the slides presented at the workshop as well as other resources to help them study for the exam.
