Project Managers Not PMPs: A Hard Look at the Soft Practice of Project Management and PMP Certification

PMs Not PMPs

If you are a manager of any level, you probably expect to become a good manager. If you are a good manager, you may think of becoming a great one, right?

This course may help you by sharing with you some best PM practices – but actually taking you well beyond project management as we know it.

Good people from a fledging online community prompted me to put together a training course. What a great idea! As a Certified Recovering Project Manager, I need exactly that!

In fact, we are all accidental project managers because we have to manage a project every once in a while, so we should all be able to benefit from this course. And I say “we” because I will be learning through your feedback.

You are invited to a sneak preview before the course appears on MadBright. Here’s the INTRO to the course. Check it out, see if the course is for you – and let me know. I would like to incorporate your questions and comments into the course, so that the course grows and improves naturally, in the optimal direction, at the rate of one new lesson per week.

To understand this natural growth better, I started growing a beard – on the same day when I started working on the course. Now they are both well advanced… Yes, of course. Having fun is an essential part of project management: it is one of the best practices that I have learned while working as a PM.

Let’s have fun together: check out the intro and let me know what you would like to see in an advanced PM course? What specific PM practices or areas of management, in general, could help a busy executive to become a great manager?

Other than that, see you in class!
