Program Management Professional (PgMP)® Prep  eLearning

The Program Management Professional (PgMP)® credential from Project Management Institute (PMI)® is the next step after Project Management Professional (PMP)® Certification, and addresses the community of professionals who are responsible for the coordinated management of multiple projects that are in alignment with organizational objectives. They are required to direct and manage complex activities that may span functions, organizations, cultures and geographies.

COURSE OVERVIEW

The aim of this practical eLearning course is to prepare professionals who are familiar with the principles of program management for the PgMP examination.  The course is based on PMI’s The Standard for Program Management, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) and PMI’s Program Management Professional (PgMP) Examination Content Outline (current version).

Modules 3–10 contain exam samples and at the end of the course, you are given access to an online sample exam. Through this learning experience, you will gain a detailed understanding of program management from a PMI standard perspective, an understanding of the role and competencies of the program manager, the difference between a project and a program manager and their relationship in a program environment, and the difference between program and portfolio managers and their relationship in a program environment. You will understand how program managers align and manage benefits, engage and involve stakeholder groups, and establish governance across the program life cycle. You will also be able to articulate the interdependencies between the five performance domains, the three program phases, and the nine supporting processes in this new and improved program management standard. Additionally, you will be able to articulate the difference between the five performance domains in the new program management standard and the five practice domains in the examination content outline.
