My PgMP certification experience

  1. 1. PMI Cer(fica(on in program management My PgMP experience to help PgMP aspirants … Céline Durnez, March 2015, update 02/09/15
  2. 2. Statistics (August 2015) •  Total cer<fied PgMP : 1406 in 63 countries –  United States 764 (54%) –  Canada 109 –  India 92 –  UAE 34 –  Australia 31 –  Saudi Arabia 30 –  China 24 –  France 24 –  Singapore 23 –  Brazil 20 –  Switzerland 18 –  UK 18 –  Germany 16 –  South Africa 16 –  Ireland 15 –  Jordan 12 –  Qatar 12 •  In 2015, just in 6 months 213 new PgMPs are added. This number is much more than any of the previous years. •  Complete list available on PMI website : h]ps://cer<fica<on.pmi.org/registry.aspx 2
  3. 3. You will do it ! Dear colleague, I hope this document will help you to save your precious time, Personally, I did not find the PgMP exam itself very different from the PMP exam. However I found the exam preparation more complex because resources and experiences are still limited and/or not perfectly known. This makes the learning process sometimes uncertain and ambiguous … This journey is a great opportunity to develop knowledge with passionate colleagues from all over the world who believe program management can really help organizations to capture more benefits and develop further the world ! Cheers, Celine. 3

  6. 6. Overview of my journey 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 sept.-14 oct.-14 nov.-14 déc.-14 janv.-15 févr.-15 mars-15 Mo<va<on (1=low; 5 = max)/ effec<ve work Further work on concepts Linkedin group Work on line with others Coaching Harish Build my own ar<facts It will be a lot of work … Great my applica(on was accepted ! Stuck at 50% of correct answers : how can I progress ? I am ready ! 70% of work It took me about 6 months and I think 150-200 hours to prepare the certification (2 or 3 times more than PMP). But I could have saved many hours, by working together with other world wide applicants and building my own artifacts from the very beginning… 6
  7. 7. Application experience •  Read the standard first to link PMI perspective to your experience •  Develop an excel sheet for your experience, to calculate hours per domain •  Make sure that all your references are OK to certify your experience •  In writing your application : –  Put you from ‘strategic perspective’, despite you might first think about you have done it, express the WHY, your strategic approach –  Use the “I” style instead of the “We” in order to point out what YOU did –  Ask somebody (if possible a PgMP) to read it to check if it is understandable without knowing your context •  Other comments : –  This exercise took much more time than for PMP, and is a very good way to reflect one’s experience and think about it. I asked review by people who were references. –  It helps to do it directly on line to get words counting : you can save your application until completed. –  A challenge I faced : In my program management experience, I did not complete all programs I had started because of moving to other roles or maternity leaves : I simply referred to the experience I effectively worked and wrote that I made a hand over to another program manager. My application was accepted in less than 10 days, without any audit. 7
  8. 8. Resources (1/2) A few personal comments about uncertainty and ambiguity sometimes in preparation … –  The standard is very synthetic and some concepts are ‘implied’, not always detailed; –  There are sometimes some differences between standard & ECO –  There are sometimes non consensual questions and interpretations… –  Questions available on internet are not always correct –  Experience helps, but before relying on it for the exam, PMI way should be considered first –  The scope of knowledge is wider than just the standard and can refer to PMBOK or other PMI sources when applicable to program management 8
  9. 9. Resources (2/2) !Helpful to download electronic version to look fro key words Dr Ginger Levin Prac<ce ques<ons + 2 exam tests" !very helpful to assimilate standard and ECO. Would recommend to start with the book before the one below. Others core resources available on PMI website : •  Examina<on Content On line •  PMI Lexicon •  PMI Code of Ethics •  PMBOK : mainly techniques and tools sec<ons of all processes Jean Gouix &Mar<al Bellec Prac<ce ques<ons + 1 exam test ! very helpful to test the combina<on of your knowledge and experience. Prac<ce ques<ons + 1 exam test Linkedin Group !Direct contact to Dr Ginger& Jean Gouix , learnings sharing from applicants, great interna<onal community Coaching Harish (Addon Skills) •  Personalized coaching sessions on certain concepts •  Ques<ons banks •  Ques<on/answers sessions with other applicants. •  Lessons learnt with successful applicants !Really helped me to boost my knowledge, train with about 400 very good ques<ons and really prepare the exam. My own ar<facts … !to assimilate, make links in your mind, building your own things helps a lot 9
  10. 10. Artifacts Make your synthesis of key concepts I struggled with ECO un<l I realized tasks were not sequen<al (except ini<a<ng and closing) and most of the ques<ons where asked on task basis. I finally made a puzzle decomposing each task « what, how, what for »: this helped me a lot Each <me I understood something new, I updated my ar<facts. ECO puzzle : funny and efficient ! Your own glossary : e.g -  “Define” benefits <> “Iden<fy” benefits -  “Close” or “terminate” the program <> closure -  Staffing management plan is men<oned in PMBOK and PMI lexicon, Use and share what you have just learnt : e.g -  In my job, I started using new words, implemen<ng new things -  I shared with my team an introduc<on to program management based on our common experience. « Blank sheets » very helpful the week before the exam to refresh knowledge every day and last gaps …. Processes Tools PMBOK !" 10
