The word Agile is prevalent across all industries and levels of an organization. The course covers the motivation behind the use of Agile terminology and mindset with respect to organizational agility and value management.
The role of the PMO is described relating to agile methods and integration into the existing organization's non-agile or hybrid methods. The course then describes agile techniques, terminology, and how PMOs can play an integral role in being custodians for an Agile maturity model (which is covered). A glimpse into the future on topics such as AI, robotics, and automation and their impact on Agile projects then leads to a discussion forum of the role of PMO in projects, programs, and portfolios. Findings from AIPMO's Vision 2030 are then included to help understand how to position PMOs to maintain their impact over the next decade.

COURSE DETAILS

Governance and governance practices, if designed and established properly, will increase the likelihood of project success (Joslin, 2016). Governance is an area that is poorly understood but has major implications not only to organizations meeting their stated objectives but also compliance within their industry. This course is based on project governance books/papers from Prof. Ralf Müller and Prof. Robert Joslin, which have been written into the governance section of PM standards. The course walks you through the realm of governance, what it is based on, and how to implement governance in the form of governance practices across the portfolio of programs, projects, and PMOs. There are exercises and assignments that help to solidify your understanding of the differences between management and governance in terms of principles, objectives, activities, and much more which you can apply to your own organization. This should be a mandatory course for all PMO professionals because of their governance role in the PPP environment.

Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between Core, Foundational, and Specialist certifications?

Each of the certification categories serve a difference purpose. The first category “PMO Core Certifications” shows that you have the competencies to design and build a service-orientated PMO with services that are needed by your project community. At the top-level (Expert) certification, you will have to show that you have the competencies to design and build one or more PMOs (called PMO topologies) within an integrated PMO Services topology. The second category of courses, called “Foundational certifications,” comprise of three certifications that are needed by everyone irrespective of whether you are a PMO or project team member or a PM/O director. The foundational courses are the techniques and tools of a trade, so they are needed by everyone including project professionals. The third category of certifications is called the “Specialist” certifications because they directly relate to the ability to offer PMO services. If a PMO service is planned, then the PMO needs to have the capability to offer them. There are over 20 specialist courses at the time of writing. These courses are also needed by project team members.

 

What are contact hours and how can I reach Specialist level 1?

AIPMO uses the term “contact hours” for its virtual courses. Contact hours include course instructions, time allocated for homework, and team exercises. Every course has allotted contact hours and once you pass the course exam, they will be accredited to your account. Once you have reached the threshold, you will be awarded the specialist level certification.

 

What is the difference between IPMO-F, IPMO-P, and IPMO-E?

These three certifications are part of the PMO core certifications. IPMO-F (Foundation) is for the PMO and project team members and covers topics around working in a PMO, and also working in a project team. It covers the lower part of the AIPMO Strategic Lifecycle framework.

IPMO-P (Practitioner) is for the PMO managers, project managers, and senior PMO and project team members. It covers topics on how to identify the need for a PMO and design, and how to justify and build a PMO and its services.

IPMO-E (Expert) is not for everyone. It is the top-level certification for PMO directors and consultants who are managing, consulting, or designing enterprise PMO topologies and PMO Service topologies.

 

I dont know which certification is right for me, how do I choose?

For now, it is best to ask one of our professionals. You can either call or chat online. They will be able to provide you expert advice to plan and advance your career.
