How PMP Project Management skills / certification can enhance your career in L&D <ul><li>JEFF FURMAN, PMP, CompTIA CTT+ </li></ul><ul><li>Certified PMP Project Management Instructor </li></ul><ul><li>Certified CompTIA CTT+ Presentation Skills Trainer </li></ul><ul><li>Book Author (Publisher: Management Concepts) </li></ul><ul><li>Website: www.Jeff-Furman.com </li></ul><ul><li>Email: [email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>Book: The Project Management Answer Book LINK: www.PMAnswerBook.com </li></ul>
  • 2. Why PM Skills / Certifications for... Training Managers / Training Directors / Trainers? <ul><li>Improve your Project Batting Average </li></ul><ul><li>Similar challenges for Training Managers as Project Managers? </li></ul><ul><li>Increase your skill-set / efficiencies / promotability </li></ul><ul><li>Boost your resume / salary </li></ul><ul><li>MANY! opportunities for trainers </li></ul>
  • 3. Resume – for PMs <ul><li>The PMP ( Project Management Professional, from PMI ) is the leading and most portable certification for project managers on today’s job market. </li></ul>
  • 4. Resume – for L&D people <ul><li>Q. But why are PM skills often requested nowadays on job specs for L&D management roles? </li></ul>“ Project Management skills / experience preferred.”
  • 5. Reason #1 - To align training with project goals & metrics... PMs want training directly tied to their project’s success .
  • 6. Reason # 2 - Similar challenges / skill-sets for: Training Managers & Project Managers? <ul><li>Following are the 9 knowledge areas for PMs </li></ul><ul><li>from PMI’s P M B O K : </li></ul><ul><li>Q. How many look like your L&D challenges? </li></ul>
  • 7. PMI’s 9 Knowledge Areas (How many look like your L&D challenges?) <ul><li>Integration - cross-managing interdependent teams/processes </li></ul><ul><li>Scope - keeping your project on-scope (avoiding scope creep ) </li></ul><ul><li>Time - coming in on-schedule </li></ul><ul><li>Cost - staying on-budget, tracking metrics </li></ul><ul><li>Quality - delivering quality results to your customer </li></ul><ul><li>HR - managing & leading your team </li></ul><ul><li>Communications - managing the information flow on projects </li></ul><ul><li>Risk - anticipating and managing risks to your project </li></ul><ul><li>Procurement - working effectively with procurement / vendors / legal </li></ul>
  • 8. Your Handout Here is what 4 ASTD NATIONAL LinkedIn Group members (PMPs) told me about the connections between L&D & PMP skills...
  • 9. Peter McAliney, CMC, PMP <ul><li>“ Most organizations are becoming ‘projectized,’ which means </li></ul><ul><li>that all roles have some aspect of projects associated with them. </li></ul><ul><li>For example, IT or HR could be responsible for identifying a </li></ul><ul><li>new ERP systems supplier, HR would need to put together a plan </li></ul><ul><li>to coordinate an international virtual training seminar, HR would </li></ul><ul><li>be asked to develop a plan to realign job roles after M&A activity etc. </li></ul><ul><li>HR professionals who have a systems, strategic-oriented perspective </li></ul><ul><li>will manage projects. Those who don't will be members of project </li></ul><ul><li>teams driven by other areas within the organization.” </li></ul><ul><li>- Author, Painless Project Management </li></ul><ul><li>- President, Chenery & Company, Inc. (Baltimore, Maryland area) </li></ul>
  • 10. Lynne Warren, PMP Instructor <ul><li>“ In my role as training manager, I had multiple roles as most of us do these days. </li></ul><ul><li>Part of my responsibility was the ongoing, daily management functions - similar to </li></ul><ul><li>any other manager: budgeting, human resource management, administration, etc . </li></ul><ul><li>However, each training program was absolutely a project. There was a beginning and </li></ul><ul><li>an end, something unique was being created, and they had to be initiated, planned, </li></ul><ul><li>executed, monitored and controlled, and eventually closed. </li></ul><ul><li>One thing I find very interesting as a PMP instructor is that most all of the concepts </li></ul><ul><li>involved in Project Management are used in nearly every management role. </li></ul><ul><li>We all plan what we're going to do, our team executes the daily activities, </li></ul><ul><li>and as managers we monitor and control all aspects of the planning and execution. </li></ul><ul><li>The only difference is that those ongoing activities aren't temporary. </li></ul><ul><li>So, I definitely feel that training managers apply all aspects of the PMP Principles, processes, </li></ul><ul><li>and knowledge areas to their operational / functional activities in their role related to developing </li></ul><ul><li>and administering specific training programs. But I believe that they also apply many of them </li></ul><ul><li>in their ongoing, repetitive activities as managers also.” </li></ul><ul><li>- Senior Faculty, Project Management Exam Prep at VMEDU (PMStudy) </li></ul><ul><li>- Owner at WTS Group (Consulting) / Warren Tree & Landscape </li></ul><ul><li>(Tampa / St. Petersburg, Florida area) </li></ul>
  • 11. Mary Ann Crow, PMP Professsional Services Trainer/Coach <ul><li>“ When I am either training or analyzing client training needs, I use many PMP/PMI skills: </li></ul><ul><li>Work with Human Resources, Company Supervisors and Directors to bring training </li></ul><ul><li>for improved organizational effectiveness (HR management) </li></ul><ul><li>Create and manage a project plan for implementing or enhancing learning and development </li></ul><ul><li>programs through scoping the training requirements, schedule, cost, resources and manage </li></ul><ul><li>associated issues and risks (Scope, Cost, Time, and Risk Management) </li></ul><ul><li>Proactively provide clear and honest communication about the company/client training needs </li></ul><ul><li>to state reality of needs (Communication Management and Professional Responsibility)” </li></ul><ul><li>Continued on next page  </li></ul>
  • 12. Mary Ann Crow, PMP Professsional Services Trainer/Coach <ul><li>“ Contract with business stakeholders for training needs and follow-up on the effectiveness </li></ul><ul><li>of the eventuallydelivered learning initiative . </li></ul><ul><li>(Procurement Management, Stakeholder Management) </li></ul><ul><li>Build high-quality training content with required design from conducted research </li></ul><ul><li>and benchmarking activities (Quality Management) </li></ul><ul><li>And let's not forget our Integration Management to bring it all to a successful conclusion!” </li></ul><ul><li>- Owner, MACrow LLC </li></ul><ul><li>- Professional services trainer and consultant, MACrow LLC </li></ul><ul><li>(Austin, Texas area) </li></ul>
  • 13. Christiana Houck, M.Ed, PMP <ul><li>“ PMP is applicable for me in the instructional design process </li></ul><ul><li>because I.D. is a project. Typically, vast and involving </li></ul><ul><li>many inputs and outputs. </li></ul><ul><li>Trainers can use PM in the classroom prep and in the acquiring </li></ul><ul><li>of knowledge in preparation for delivering training. </li></ul><ul><li>I would recommend PMP for training people!” </li></ul><ul><li>- Curriculum Developer at Aristocrat Technologies </li></ul><ul><li>- ASTD Tribute To Learning “Overall Best” Award at Aristocrat </li></ul><ul><li>(Las Vegas, Nevada area) </li></ul>
