Project Management Professional (PMP)® Just Announced: PMP® Exam Change 2019. Now is the time to get your PMP certification.  PMI® has announced that the PMP certification exam will change on December 16, 2019. This announcement gives you time to get your application submitted and to prepare to take the exam before the exam changes.

Coverage of Agile Process in Rita Mulcahy’s PMP® Exam Prep-Ninth Edition

Since the publication of “Rita Mulcahy’s PMP Exam Prep, Ninth Edition” back in January, we have been getting a number of questions asking why the book does not cover Agile Process.  These readers note that A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Sixth Edition, discusses Agile through out and is shipped in a package set with the “Agile Practice Guide.”  Seeing what they consider an obvious disconnect they reasonably ask whether RMC is suggesting that there will be no Agile questions on the PMP exam.

6 Essential Elements to Effective Project Management

How do organizations maximize their projects by delivering expected value on time and within budget? The keys to success lie in mastering the six essential elements discussed in this paper.

Certification Exam Preparation: Understanding Beats Memorization

Understanding vs. Memorization
Why does RMC focus on understanding rather than memorization?  As RMC’s project management practice leader I’m often asked: “why can’t I just memorize the process names, inputs, tools, techniques, and outputs (ITTOs) and pass the exam?” The answer to this question is quite simple.  Understanding works, memorization does not, especially in the context of the PMP® exam. Let’s discuss understanding vs. memorization.

Master the Information in Rita Mulcahy’s Process Chart

When students discover Rita’s Process Chart, they often ask us, “Which parts should I memorize?” It’s a simple question, right? Unfortunately, the answer isn’t so straightforward. It’s more than just memorizing―it’s realizing that, in order to pass the exam, you need to thoroughly understand each process.

I want to introduce myself in my first blog on Converging 360. As leader of the Project Management Area of practice for RMC Project Management, I wear many hats within our organization.
