Accelerated Learning Series: 3rd Power Up Your Productivity –

Starting Projects Right By Defining and Clarifying Scope

Organizations and people undertake projects because they are not satisfied with the status quo, whether that is improving something existing or developing something completely new. From this perspective, projects are mechanisms to make change happen and all projects by definition are investment of a better future.

But what is that future state? What are the improved or improved functions, features, or results? What are the essential requirements of the project?  The question of “what” to do is the domain of scope management, and in this workshop, we will conduct a deeper dive to understand the challenges of defining, managing, coping with change as related to scope.

The best time to take the Portfolio Management Certification depends on several factors, such as your professional goals, experience, and current knowledge of portfolio management. However, generally speaking, it is recommended to take the certification after gaining some practical experience in portfolio management and after acquiring a solid understanding of the fundamental concepts and principles of portfolio management.

It is important to note that most portfolio management certifications have prerequisites that require a minimum level of education or experience. Therefore, it is important to review the certification requirements and ensure that you meet them before applying for the certification exam.
