We have found ourselves in the position of mostly working from home. We are now, remote project managers. What can you do to be effective while remote? How do you maintain a peaceful co-existence between your professional and personal life? Please join us to discuss being remote; learn and share ideas – remotely.
Please note – this is a virtual meeting. Meeting connection information will be sent to participants prior to the meeting.
Velociteach’s 4-Day PMP Exam Prep Course is comprehensive, accelerated, and focused on a single goal: Equip students with the knowledge and techniques they need to pass the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification exam. In our 4-Day class you’ll learn Velociteach’s proprietary “can’t miss” strategies for answering difficult exam questions, unlock the secret to learning the massive amount of content found in the PMBOK® Guide 6th edition, and take loads of quizzes that look and feel like the actual PMP Exam. We’ll help you think the way PMI thinks, giving you the right frame of reference needed to approach the exam with PMI’s mindset.
When you take Velociteach’s live PMP Exam Prep Course you get more than just an instructor-led class. We give you a comprehensive, accelerated learning program that includes live instruction, eLearning, step-by-step guidance, and all the study tools you’ll need to pass the PMP exam. Among the resources provided is the bestselling textbook The PMP Exam: How to Pass on Your First Try, written by Velociteach CEO Andy Crowe.
Even the most entry-level project managers can usually recite the five phases of a project. Unfortunately, we often receive projects that have skipped a phase (or two) or at least did not take advantage of the key benefits of each phase.
We will spend five lunch meetings the individual phases. We will recap the “what should happen,” lament the “what gets missed,” and share best practices and course-correction tips. We hope you can join us for each month – but if not, we hope you will pop in for the phases where you or your teams need the most support!
On August 27th we continue with the 3rd of our five-part series – “Project Progress by Phase: Excelling in Execution".
You will receive a link to Zoom 24 hours and 1 hour before the meeting.
