PMP_certificaitonI believe that everyone can learn from the experiences of others. In this article, I will share how I planned for and studied in order to pass the PMP exam. I followed these five steps:

1. Choose Your Preparatory Course

You need to search for at least three training centers and compare the material, benefits and costs. After that, choose the best cost/benefit for you. I recommend Master of Project Academy.

2. Choose Your Study Material

Pay attention when choosing the material. You will have a lot of options of books, courses, blogs and specialized websites that will offer everything about the PMP certification. You should choose, at maximum, three books because you will not have time to read more than that. When I studied for the exam, I used preparatory course materials, with books and simulation exams.  Read the Complete Article

Need a simple project management software to manage your team?
Check-out our valuable and unique Top 15 Web Applications 2016.

Phase 1Projects originate from various sources, including an internal business need for a product or service upgrade, an external client request or some kind of demand in the market. Whatever the project’s origin, a project manager must have a great plan in order to execute that project well.

As a perpetual student, continuing to hone your project management craft, perhaps you’ve previously stopped by our website. If so, earlier this month, you may have come across the article “Top 5 Project Management Phases” written by Roli Pathak.

In her article, Roli mentions that there are different ideas about exactly how many stages or phases are needed or should occur in order to spell out each step in a project plan effectively so that things can run smoothly. She references the book titled Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) by the Project Management Institute, saying that it “points-out that the number of phases is determined by the project team and type of project.”

Further, she explains, that “project management is solely based on the idea that a project goes through a number a phases characterized by a distinct set of activities or tasks that take the project from conception to conclusion.” Roli provides an overview of an organizational strategy that includes the following 5 phases: 

  1. Initiation
  2. Planning
  3. Execution
  4. Monitoring & Control
  5. Closure

Exploring Phase #1 – Initiation

In this article series, we’re going to delve further into the details for each of these 5 phases of a project. Read the Complete Article

Or, how do you think an audience would respond if they went for a hip-hop performance and a ballet ensued? Or, how do you think someone would feel if they found out that they had just missed a performance by their most favorite artist? Everyone above would feel confused, disappointed, and let down.

Overview Presentation

People all over the world rely on Evernote to be productive. Unfortunately, Evernote falls short in its task and event management. TaskClone is a brilliant solution. A simple addon, TaskClone is a bridge between Evernote and more than 40 to-do and calendar applications.

Features, Benefits, and Strengths

  • Tasks – TaskClone uses your to-do lists email function to copy over tasks. Simply add a checkbox in front of the action item in your note. Then finish the note and add a trigger tag (customizable in the TaskClone settings). The next time Evernote syncs, these items appear on your to-do list. Back in Evernote, you’ll see a skip code added to those items to prevent duplication. It is simple to authorize and set up, completely customizable and almost foolproof.
  • Events – After you authorize TaskClone in your Google and Evernote accounts, it’s easy to turn notes into calendar events.
