Increase Your Versatility, the PMI-ACP Certification Prep Class, the Agile Class that Teaches Agile

Virtual Meeting – Conferencing details will be distributed prior to the meeting
NCPMI Members - $435; Non Members - $495

 

The PMI-ACP course focuses on embracing and applying the Agile Manifesto — not a method, framework, or toolkit. You will, though, learn about Scrum, Kanban, eXtreme Programming, lean thinking, and other approaches.

The PMI-ACP global certification supports individuals in meeting the needs of organizations that rely on project practitioners to apply a diversity of methods to their project management — from predictive to hybrid to agile.

NOTE: This class will cover the 21 credit hours which is one of the key requirements for taking the PMI-ACP certification. In addition, students who have their PMP will gain 21 PDUs towards their PMP renewal.

Class Dates: October 3, 10, and 17, 2020

Virtual Workshop Series presented by Apex Systems with Live Q & A: Taking Our Project Management Careers to the Next Level with David Barrett - Workshop 2

Free for members (be sure to login to website); $15 for non-members

Abstract:

NCPMI in partnership with Apex System is offering a Web Seminar Series on Time Management and Communications for All Practitioners. You must watch the on-demand webinar here prior to attending this live question and answer event. These sessions will be free for NCPMI Members and hosted online via ZOOM. 

Overview:

  • The project management field out there is pretty crowded out there. It’s no longer enough to be just really good at what you do. You have to be more. It’s no longer build it on time, on scope and budget.   You have to add value over and above the normal requirements of project managers.
  • So how do we add value?  How do we stand out in the crowd?  How do we get recognized in this very crowded field? Our speaker will get us thinking about what we can do to innovate our careers and get to the next level.

Healthcare CoP: “Scientists say…” critically evaluating science for non-scientists

10-07-2020 6:00 pm -7:00 pm
Virtual Meeting – Conferencing details will be distributed prior to the meeting
Free

Abstract

The infectious disease COVID-19 is crippling most aspects of society. Ending this pandemic will require scientists to develop ways of diagnosing, treating and preventing the disease, and the public is understandably eager to know how close scientists are to these goals. However, scientists often struggle to effectively communicate their research to non-experts, and both politicians and the media are imperfect intermediaries. Using examples relevant to COVID-19, this talk will help non-scientists to evaluate what scientists say and understand what they really mean. It will also provide advice for effectively discussing technical information with lay audiences.

Objectives:

- Understand the “business” of science

- Learn how to evaluate the who, what, and why of science communication

- Identify common unreported limitations of scientific studies

- Discuss ways scientists and non-scientists can communicate more effectively
