How do you study to become a project manager?

Who is this for?

This 20-minute video is for you if you’re:

  • a newbie interested in a Project Management certificate to enhance your career
  • an experienced professional seeking formal recognition after years of leading projects
  • working in HR and seeking training for someone in your company
  • an employer looking for a project manager

What’s the video about?

The video explains what you need to know before spending your money on a PMP®, PRINCE2® or any other Project Management certificate course. Working from the Project Manager Competency Development Framework of the PMI®, Tania Melnyczuk highlights what’s important for studying to become a competent project manager.

What’s the gist of the video?

Regular Project Management certification courses are aimed at providing the Project Management knowledge needed to pass standards-based exams.

These courses are not designed to produce competent project managers.

The typical study methods also do not actually develop knowledge as defined here.

If you want your certificate training to help you do your actual work, you need a different approach to studying Project Management.
