About This Course

With so many project proposals to choose from to charter as programs and projects and include in the portfolio, why are some chosen and others abandoned?  In this course, learn why projects are investments, where they fit in the “big picture” and how they are vetted against each other based on beneficial contributions and the cost of the investment.   Factors such as project triggers, compliance factors, the gap from today to tomorrow, and financial benefit measurement methods are reviewed and explained.  These strategies and concepts apply to project and program investments – whether traditional or agile!

Earn 6 Professional Development Units (PDUs) that can be applied towards the following certifications: PMP, PgMP, PfMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-BA, PMI-RMP, and PMI-SP.

This course is also available in the Complete Your Talent Triangle bundle and the PDU Passport, our all-access pass to every InSite PDU course.

I used Velociteach course material in preparing for my PMP exam years ago, and Velociteach has been my go-to for online courses thereafter.

Your courses are well designed, planned and executed. Love the interactive nature and the recaps after each section. Case studies are awesome to get material to stick. Thank you. IT appears you practice what you preach. You understand your stakeholders' needs so well.

All of the courses I have purchased from Velociteach have been invaluable! I love the courses and it helps provides greater insights to areas that I'm not familiar with.

Testimonial Headshot image of Claire Struthers
Velociteach is doing a great job of helping me earn my PDUs through the courses offered to me. I am most enthusiastic about project management and the Agile methodology that is garnering a lot of attention. Kudos to Velociteach and Neal Whitten to take this on and provide more information to PMI PMP's such as myself. It helps me to take the course on my own pace and when it serves me best to get on the computer to learn it.
