Let’s say you’re interested in the upcoming Agile Project Professional (APP) certification from PMI. You look to see the eligibility requirements and notice you’ll need 21 hours of Agile Project Management Training. If you’re determined to get the PMI APP and looking to do this on the cheap, start watching webinars now. I can guarantee there will be a lot of training opportunities in the near future. Check out a future location to find upcoming Agile PDUs. Once it is fully rolled out, it should be an excellent resource to find PDUs to meet your PMI needs.
So back to the intent of getting the training. After I read (and recently reread) Dan Pink’s book, Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, it made me stop and question why people wanted to get the PMP or APP. Are we trying to discover better ways to deliver value to customers or just trying to get a piece of paper and a few extra letters after our names? Dan breaks it down to pursuing the mastery of performance-based objectives versus learning-based objectives (ie. getting a passing score on a certification exam versus learning new approaches to deliver value to customers).
Regardless, information is information and I want to do what I can to help people discover it.
One of the approaches I really enjoy using is Kanban. Today I stumbled upon a . Though you do have to enter some contact information, it’s free. You have the option of downloading it or viewing a playback. So, regardless if you’re looking to bank those PMI Agile PDUs or not, enjoy 1 free hour of training. By the way, I am in no way affiliated with the provider. I just like free webinars.
