CAPM® Exam Prep Course Modules: What you’ll learn and practice on CAPM® exam questions
| You will master each of the project phases described below with a customized learning process tailored to your individual learning style. Your instructor will work with you to design your course, selecting the appropriate:
Project Phases and Components
Project Initiation – This phase covers the steps from the project sponsor telling the project manager the end result they want through the completion of the project charter.
The challenge for people preparing for the CAPM® certification exam comes in three areas. First, there is a lot of new vocabulary and you need to learn PMI®’s language to pass the exam. You’ll find it’s very different from what’s used in most organizations. Second, in many organizations project initiation is a quick and informal process without any of the rigor in PMI®’s best practices. Third, for some people preparing to take the CAPM® exam, it’s been years sine their last formal education. So studying a textbook, listening to lectures and taking tests is not a new experience but it’s one they haven’t been through in a while.
Project Management Plans – The project manager decides what techniques and processes are required on each individual project.
The challenge in the second process group is that most organizations do not do formal management plans on their projects. As a result, many of the ideas here are new and so are all the sophisticated techniques that you must understand. There are some excellent ideas here but many of them are unfamiliar to even experienced project managers. The idea behind management planning is a very good one; that is we decide what we’re going to do on our schedule, budget and other areas before we start work. That keeps a ceiling on the amount of time and money invested in the planning process.
1. Project manager evaluates the requirements of the project.
Project Plans – The project manager develops a specific plan for each specialty area, as identified in the project’s management planning step.
This process group is very familiar to most project managers because it includes the budget, schedule, estimating cost and duration and what we’re going to do regarding quality on the project deliverables. We also decide how to mitigate or avoid the impact of negative risks on the project. Those are all comfortable areas for most students.
Project Executing – This phase covers the actual implementation of the project plan. Here we use the steps, processes and techniques previously identified in the planning processes.
The executing process group is where we put our project management plan to work. Because we have carefully planned what we’re going to do, this is not the scattered and confused phase that it is in many organizations. If we follow PMI’s best practices, we don’t have meetings where we’re discussing what to do next. We already know.
Project Monitoring and Controlling – This phase occurs in parallel with executing. It requires the project manager and team to regularly compare actual results with the project plan. We identify corrective action and required changes.
The monitoring and controlling process group is another one where you will learn many new techniques and processes. There is a major focus on earned value as well as classic variance analysis. The procedures for bringing about changes in the process are more elaborate than what many project managers are accustomed to using.
Project Closing – When the last deliverable has been completed, the project manager implements the closing procedures for the project.
The final phase of the process is closing the project which is something few organizations do well. As a result, they make subsequent projects much more difficult than they should be. That’s because they are “reinventing the wheel” every time they start a new project. The closeout best practices allow you to reuse many of your management plans and take advantage of archive data. This includes the actual hours of work and costs for various task on previous projects. This saves a great deal of time and effort.
