The PMBOK® Guide serves as the official basis for the PMP Certification Exam and provides a reference for anyone interested in the profession of project management. The PMBOK® Guide offers a basic structure for understanding project management, the environment in which projects operate and an overall view of how the various project management processes interact. Divided into nine knowledge areas, described in terms of component processes and five process groups, the PMBOK® Guide has become the framework by which many organizations develop their project management practices.What background knowledge should I have?
This course is valuable for experienced project managers who are planning to take the PMP in the near future. At least three years experience as a project manager and related project management training is assumed prior to taking this course. Although a general knowledge of the PMBOK® Guide is highly recommended, it is not assumed. (On the first day of class, a copy of the PMBOK® Guide - Fifth Edition is given to each course participant to keep.)How do you approach the PMBOK® Guide material?
The PMBOK® Guide material can appear overwhelming on first look. One methodology to study for the exam is to simply go over the knowledge areas and process groups by rote, memorizing facts that may or may not appear on the exam. This course takes a more complete and effective approach by focusing on the five process groups and the ten knowledge areas, creating a complete picture of PMBOK® Guide and those areas beyond the PMBOK® Guide that are covered in the exam.How much time is spent on each topic?
This course has extended hours, with some days running from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
