  • Each of these bullets represents one or more individual projects Each project could have been completed successfully on its own – but the program is not successful unless all the projects required to realize the synergies are completed successfully
  • Again these projects could have been completed independently but they could have gone In different directions resulting in overall increased costs
  • Initially I only used the Sybex study guide – I then tried to find some online practice exams This is the same pattern I used for PMP exam and found many online practice exams – not so with PgMP So, I scheduled the exam and then ran across a PgMP forum where everyone was stating all the training &amp; studying they did and how difficult the exam was – so I rescheduled the exam, bought the Crosswinds guide and studied for another month In taking the exam I finished my last question with 30 sec to go in the allotted 4 hours – had no time to review any questions – felt sure I would not pass AND did not know what I would do differently to better prepare Fortunately I PASSED!

Copyright and all rights reserved. Material from this publication has been reproduced with the permission of PMI.
    21. 21. Certified Associate in Project Management CAPM <ul><li>My personal experience... </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Why - I wanted to differentiate myself and formally acknowledge my PM knowledge on my resume. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How - I attended the PMI NEO PMP Study Group, Professional Development Days and chapter meetings, plus B-W courses. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CAPM vs. PMP - The PMP registration requires detailed records of your project hours, which I had not kept on my volunteer projects. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Results - I easily passed the exam, then I interviewed for jobs that required the CAPM and/or stated “PMP preferred”. </li></ul></ul>
    22. 22. Program Management Professional
    23. 23. What is a Program? <ul><li>A program is a set of related projects managed in a coordinated fashion to obtain control and benefits that would not be available if those projects were managed individually 1. </li></ul><ul><li>I managed several program resulting from mergers & acquisitions - the business benefit the programs had to achieve was synergy realization (i.e. cost savings) </li></ul><ul><li>Sample projects within these programs: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Technology capability assessment & surviving technology recommendations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Data mapping and functionality gap analysis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Gap closures </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hardware/software repurposing/retirement Data extract, transformation/cleansing & load </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enterprise testing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Conversion planning & execution </li></ul></ul>1 – The Standard for Program Management by PMI ®
    24. 24. Program Management Professional Certification Process <ul><li>Must pass a sequence of three evaluations: </li></ul><ul><li>Application review – a panel of program managers review your professional project and program management experience over the past 15 years </li></ul><ul><ul><li>6,000 hrs project management experience </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>10,000 hrs program management experience </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Multiple Choice Exam – 150 questions/4 hours </li></ul><ul><li>Multi-Rater Assessment – similar to a 360 review process by a team of 12 raters you select </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1 supervisor </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>4 peers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>4 direct reports </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>3 professional references </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Application audit may be required Sample projects within this program: </li></ul><ul><li>Member fee: $1500 </li></ul>
    25. 25. Certification Process – Personal Experience <ul><li>Documenting the experience was a challenge – it was difficult to find documentation and contacts on projects/programs I managed 5-15 years ago </li></ul><ul><li>I was selected for audit so I had to get thee colleagues to certify the information on my application </li></ul><ul><li>I prepared for the exam using the Sybex Program Management Professional Exam Study Guide and the Crosswind PgMP Exam Review: Bootcamp Manual </li></ul><ul><li>Could NOT find many online sample tests </li></ul><ul><li>The exam was difficult!!! </li></ul>
    26. 26. Certification Process – Personal Experience 2 <ul><li>My application was rejected the first time through because I didn’t break my projects out enough </li></ul><ul><li>My PMP application was available as a PDF file on PMI’s web site so I redid my application using that. </li></ul><ul><li>I was selected for audit (I’m not aware of any PgMP who wasn’t) </li></ul><ul><li>I prepared for the exam using: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>IIL’s PgMP course (covered content), and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Terminus, Inc. PgMP exam prep (covered how to take the exam.) The exam prep was very valuable </li></ul></ul><ul><li>I didn’t find the exam to be difficult (likely due to the test prep class.) </li></ul>
    27. 27. Opinion of Certification Value <ul><li>I was the first, and still am the only PgMP at my company (35,000 employees.) It was publicized. </li></ul><ul><li>I feel the PgMP has given me a reputation at work as an expert in Program Management Methodology. </li></ul><ul><li>I felt some sense of security when there were layoffs on my team in early 2009. </li></ul>
    28. 28. Program Management Job Market Personal Experience <ul><li>The program management discipline is still in its infancy and PgMP ® certification is not well known </li></ul><ul><li>During my job search saw three primary types of “program management” positions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Non-profit or social organizations looking for managers/directors for their social programs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Organizations defining this role for account managers or business managers </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Organizations that recognized program management as part of the project management family of disciplines </li></ul></ul>
    29. 29. Program Management Job Market Personal Experience <ul><li>2009 PgMP ® opportunities I was aware of: </li></ul><ul><li>0 in the Cleveland market </li></ul><ul><li>1 in the Columbus market </li></ul><ul><li>2 in the Pittsburgh market </li></ul><ul><li>Several national & international (many in the DC area especially government related) </li></ul><ul><li>2010 opportunities </li></ul><ul><li>24 nationwide job posting on Monster in March that specifically listed PgMP </li></ul>
    30. 30. Recommendation <ul><li>PgMP ® is a fine certification and I have no regrets in pursuing the certification. </li></ul><ul><li>There are currently over 400 PgMP ® certified professionals worldwide. This makes it a unique certification (pros and cons to that.) </li></ul><ul><li>However, I would recommend obtaining the PMP ® before the PgMP ® only because it is more widely recognized and therefore more marketable. </li></ul>
    31. 31. Risk Management Professional
    32. 32. Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP ® ) <ul><li>Risk </li></ul><ul><li>“ Project risk is an uncertain event or condition that, if it occurs, has a positive or negative effect on at least one project objective, such as time, cost, scope, or quality.” 1 </li></ul><ul><li>Credential </li></ul><ul><li>“ The PMI-RMP ® credential recognizes individuals who provide expertise in the specialized area of assessing and identifying project risks along with preparing plans to mitigate threats and capitalize on opportunities.” 2 </li></ul>1 Project Management Institute PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP) Credential Handbook, Project Management Institute, Inc., 2009.

    34. 34. Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP ® ) <ul><li>Why Earn Credential? </li></ul><ul><li>Recognize importance of risk management to project success. </li></ul><ul><li>Recognize importance of continuing PM education. </li></ul><ul><li>Minimal experience in risk management </li></ul>
    35. 35. Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP ® ) <ul><li>Why Not Earn Credential? </li></ul><ul><li>Experienced risk manager </li></ul><ul><ul><li>PM </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other fields/industries (financial services) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Credential not widely held </li></ul><ul><ul><li>NEOPMI research </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Queried three PM groups on Linkedin.com </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>No one indicated they have credential. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    36. 36. Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP ® ) <ul><li>Conclusion </li></ul><ul><li>Risk Management is critical to project success. </li></ul><ul><li>PMI-RMP ® provides grounding in risk management fundamentals. </li></ul><ul><li>PMI-RMP ® credential is not widely recognized . . . yet. </li></ul><ul><li>Worthwhile earning PMI-RMP ® if limited experience with risk management and/or want to demonstrate commitment to risk management and continuing PM education </li></ul>
