In “Everything is a Project”, Jill will discuss how the team at Camp Twin Lakes applies project management rigor to fundraising and event planning, program development and long-range strategic planning. Whether organizing a cycling event or planning a new program for children with medical and life challenges, the same principles apply. Assemble the right team, develop a detailed work plan, identify metrics of success, establish a project budget, identify potential risks and mitigation strategies, implement the project, measure success. Jill will give several examples of these steps using the impactful work of Camp Twin Lakes to illustrate that at work and in life, “everything is a project”!

Agile has made its way into the mainstream – it's no longer a grassroots movement to change software development. Today, more organizations and companies are adopting this approach over a more traditional waterfall methodology, and more are working every day to make the transition. To stay relevant in the competitive, professional world, it's increasingly important that professionals can demonstrate true leadership ability on today's software projects. The Project Management Institute's Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) certification clearly illustrates to colleagues, organizations or even potential employers that you're ready and able to lead in this new age of product development, management and delivery.
This PMI-ACP exam prep training not only prepares you to lead your next Agile project effort, but ensures that you're prepared to pass the PMI-ACP certification exam. This course provides a proven combination of class learning and testing that prepares students for some of the most difficult of testing situations. Questions are designed to allow you to learn through practice so that you will be able to apply what you have learned for the exam.
