Hints for Passing the PMP Exam

Hints for Passing the PMP Exam

FAQs
How much time should I spend studying for the exam? Which books should I read in order to prepare for the exam? Do I need to memorize all the ITTOs? If these questions sound familiar it is because everyone has the same concerns regarding taking the exam. Also, there are tons of blogs and online social media groups discussing all the possible configurations for studying for the exam. However, there is such a thing as overkill when it comes to preparing for the exam. My advice, after running countless PMP Exam workshops, is to follow these steps in this order: Schedule the exam preparation process, which includes the following: Preliminary studying. See item 2 below. Dates for the PMP exam preparation workshop. Post-workshop studying timeframe. Usually, no more than 1…

How to start a Project Management Office (PMO) in your organization

How to start a Project Management Office (PMO) in your organization

FAQs
As you probably know, there are a lot of articles, white papers, and blogs about how to set up a PMO. You have probably been thinking of setting one up for months or even years, but you can’t find the time or are concerned about the cost to your organization, the resistance you might get from the board of directors and/or the staff. Sound familiar? That’s because most organizations, if not all, go through the same decision-making process. What I recommend you do first is ask yourself these simple questions: Do you feel like you keep reinventing the wheel each time you start a new project and or project/process? Do you think you have the processes, guidelines, templates, etc. needed to start and run a project, but you just don’t…

La gestión de cambio basado en las expectativas de los interesados

Change Management
Muchos de los riesgos se pueden identificar de antemano. En cualquier caso, los riesgos El cambio es algo parecido al cambios pueden ser negativos riesgo porque ambos son incertidumbres, pero y los. El cambio normalmente se considera como algo negativo, porque la expectativa es que afectará el presupuesto o programa de trabajo. Normalmente la gestión de cambio se plantea independientemente de la gestión de interesados. La gestión de interesados debe incorporar cuales son los “puntos candentes” del cliente y otros interesados clave.

La Gestión de Riesgo Como Parte de la Vida Cotidiana

La Gestión de Riesgo Como Parte de la Vida Cotidiana

Risk Management
Cuando imparto un curso o taller de capacitación para la gestión de proyectos, siempre explico que la gestión de riesgo es mi tema preferido. Desafortunadamente casi nunca tengo la oportunidad de abordar este tema en gran detalle, dado que la gestión de riesgo es solo una de las áreas de conocimiento esenciales para cualquier proyecto. Además, he de reconocer que mi apego a la gestión de riesgo es más bien de carácter personal y los cursos que imparto son, obviamente, de índole profesional. ¿Por qué considero el tema de la gestión de riesgo tan atractivo o interesante? Primero, porque el riesgo no es nada más que incertidumbre, por lo cual tenemos que enfrentarnos a ella cada día; segundo, porque el riesgo puede ser visto como una oportunidad (riesgo positivo) así…

Planning for GDPR

Planning for GDPR

Resources
The GDPR Plan: Getting Started Even though the implementation deadline for the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is fast approaching (25 May 2018,) there are still many companies of all sizes who are not ready for it. As a consultant working in the area of project management, I approach almost everything as a project and recommend to my clients they do the same. The advantage of taking this approach is that it can take something seemingly insurmountable and decompose it into more manageable pieces. So, even with the looming deadline, start with a project charter, such as the following example, which includes, among other things: Statement of Work: Prepare the policies and procedures needed to abide by the GDPR… Target Schedule: by 25 May 2018 Target Budget: 200 staff…
