The Future of PMI's PMP Certification and Profession!
PMI's direction in project management certification has been revised to Processes, People, and the Business Environment based on current industry-wide standards. Based on meta-analysis of the project management profession, PMI has revised the PMP certification effective July 1, 2020. While the process tasks are associated with the PMBOK 6th Edition, other task areas in the People and Business Environment categories are referred to the project manager's experience and pertinent resources. With these changes, what can you expect in the next PMI's PMP certification exam? Does this revision impact your PDUs? Finally, what is the future for your project management profession.

Earned Value Management
A review of Earned Value and a Practical Application of Project Use
Help kick off 2020 with our first lunch speaker of the year! Jon Lazarus will join us to discuss a technical aspect of our discipline: Earned Value Management.
The PMBOK has a page dedicated to formulas for EVM. Have you ever used them all during a project? Have you documented how the project changed and compared the EVM values? If not, you are not alone. Jon will present a short review of EVM formulas and a 5-year long project which used EVM as a tracking tool.
