Understanding and Mastering the PMBOK® Guide 7th Edition

An in-depth course on the brand new PMBOK® Guide 7th Edition, the standard for project management published by PMI.

In more than 8 hours of video, exercises, and supporting materials, Ricardo goes deep on explaining the 12 Principles outlined in the Project Management Standard and the 8 Performance Domains outlined in the PMBOK® Guide 7th Edition.

Ricardo will teach you directly and straightforwardly how to understand and apply the principles in your day-to-day work, no matter the product or service you are developing or the delivery approach you decide to use.

He also explains the main differences between the 6th and the 7th Edition using a simple concept: the PMBOK® Guide 7th Edition as an umbrella for other methods, standards, or approaches (like Scrum, Lean, Kanban, etc.).

Every lesson is usually between 5 and 20 min, so you will learn everything you need to know in just the right amount of time at just the right pace.

It is important to mention that this course does not aim to be a preparation for the PMP® or CAPM® certifications of PMI. However, the content will help you to become more comfortable with the PMBOK® Guide without the need to memorize every single item for the exam.
