Project Management for the Real World FAQs: Cost, Training, Value

What's the underlying technology in the Project Management for the Real World training?

The underlying technology in this Project Management for the Real World training is the terminology and concepts of project management according to the Project Management Institute, which publishes certifications like CAPM and PMP. This is not PMI training, but the vocabulary, concepts and skills of identifying projects, breaking them into smaller pieces, and getting them all done on time is useful for the real world.

Is the Project Management for the Real World certification still valid?

No, the certification that this Project Management for the Real World training prepared learners for has been retired and is no longer valid. The Project Management Institute updated their Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), and this training relates to old concepts and terminology. Despite that, core concepts like project initiation, stakeholder communication and risk assessment are all still valid and useful to anyone who manages projects.

Is this Project Management for the Real World training still valuable?

Yes, this Project Management for the Real World training is definitely still valuable even though its certification got retired. For starters, the PMI methodology is notorious for being convoluted -- this training can help anyone become more familiar and comfortable with the PMBOK terms and concepts. But not only that, the underlying principles of managing projects this training covers remain universal no matter what methodology or philosophy a project manager uses.

What's meant by project management for the real world?

This training is called Project Management for the Real World because it covers the bare essentials of getting projects completed on time. Sure, there are lots of different project management methodologies with weird vocabularies, but in the end the basics remain the same: name your objective, break the project into pieces, schedule each piece, then keep everyone in the loop. This real world training shows you, simply, how to get things done.

What's the best way to learn project management for the real world?

Obviously no two projects are ever identical, but all projects are similar enough that you can use many of the same tools from one project to the next. The best way to learn project management for the real world is with a course that explains those similarities but prepares you for the differences. This course explains how professional project managers talk about projects, but explains it in ways that help you bring it with you into the real world.

What is it like to train with us?
