The Beginning...


Most people think that a project management course is synonymous with a PMP facilitation program but it is not.

In fact, nothing can be farther from the truth.

PMP certification is for practicing project managers. A PMP training teaches you how to crack the PMP exam. It is not meant for learning project management.

Whereas, a learning-oriented project management course will teach you nuances and fundamentals of project management.

Hi, I am Praveen Malik. I have been managing projects since 1998.

In 2004-2005, I managed projects that generated a revenue of over $2M for my company but I was disappointed as I didn't have a formal project management education.

To be honest, in those days there was nothing other than PMP facilitation program that could be called as project management education.

So, I joined a facilitation program in 2005 and cracked the exam in the same year.

Immediately after that, I started taking training sessions on project management.

In 2008, I quit my job to become a full time project management trainer.

I realized that there was a vast gap between what PMP programs were dishing out in the name of teaching project management and how project management should be learnt. 

The Course


In my endeavor to teach the best practices of project management, I designed an offline course. We are in process of launching online version of this course.

My course is a completely learning-oriented course.

As part of the course, I will take you through a project case scenario. We will understand how to successfully Initiate, Plan, Execute, Monitor & Control, and Close a project with the help of this case scenario.

Although my course is primarily oriented towards learning the fundamentals of project management, it can help you in passing the PMP exam also.

My course is based on the best practices that are described in the PMBOK Guide and can be used for applying to the PMP exam. We will issue a 35 hours certificate that is mandatory for applying to the exam.

I would suggest you to join the course if your primary objective is to learn project management and secondary objective is to pass the PMP exam.

All the best.

PMP Facilitation Training vs Our Course


The purpose of both the training courses is different. One is not better than the other.

The main purpose of a PMP facilitation training is to prepare you for the PMP certification exam. Our training has entirely different objective. It will teach you the fundamentals and best practices of project management. So that you can deliver your projects successfully.

Now, someone might say that PMP exam is a project management exam. So, while preparing for the exam wouldn't we learn project management.

No. Not exactly!

The PMP exam is designed to the PMBOK Guide, which is a big tome and a difficult book to read. It is a difficult book because it contain bucket full of disparate project management terms without any real life examples.

The book does not give guidance of how these terms are related to each other or how they should be used while managing projects.

Reading PMBOK is like going to a fancy grocery store and picking up foreign vegetables and spices without knowing the recipe of dishes.

After taking a PMP facilitation training you will know the ingredients of project management without really knowing how to practically use them in real life projects.

As said earlier, PMP training has a purpose. If your objective is to pass the PMP exam go for PMP training but if your objective is to learn the nuances of project management then you should enroll into our training.
