Written by a certified PfMP®, this book is the first and only book on the market created by a PfMP credential holder and by a PMI Registered Education Provider. In addition to being an university professor for over a dozen years, the author is also an experienced and practicing portfolio leader who is leading project portfolios of over $100 million in addition to building large PMOs. Beyond these attributes, this is also the only book that addresses one of the biggest challenges for busy professionals as they tackle the PfMP exam – how to develop the optimal mindset required to think like a portfolio manager to address the experience-based questions. Similar but more extensive than other PMI certifications, the PfMP exam questions are heavily experience based. This means the mere memorization of PMI’s recommended books is not sufficient. The book introduces a proven approach to satisfactorily completing the exam and it includes 400 practice questions, exam aids, lesson plans, and important concepts. To prepare for the “experience-based” questions, the author has taken a Socratic approach based on questions and answers to stimulate critical thinking and to illuminate ideas. Beyond the basic, this guide contains additional sample deliverables and approaches that will help you professionally.
This book is part of a larger suite of products and services to help organizations and project professionals to achieve execution excellence. The author’s company, PMO Advisory, also offers additional PfMP practice questions and two types of bootcamps. For more information, visit www.pmoadvisory.com/pfmp.
Why PfMP? The Project Management Institute (PMI®) recently introduced the Portfolio Management Certification (PfMP®) and added to its suite of credentials as recognition to the growing importance of experienced project professionals who are responsible for the planning, organization, and execution of strategically aligned initiatives called portfolios. For most project professionals, becoming a portfolio manager represents the pinnacle of the project management profession, and the PfMP credential provides the formal acknowledgment of this important accomplishment.
