Re: PRINCE2 Training Provider

I agree with Stonesfan, doing your homework is vital if you're going to pass. I have colleagues that failed, not because they didn't have the ability to pass, but because they didn't prepare properly. They thought managing projects as part of their day job would get them through the exam. My course ...

Re: How to Engage Your Team Members

I recently had a team member that was not motivated and not engaging with the rest of the project team. I spent a lot of time with him, but I seemed to be getting nowhere. Then I tried him on some different roles. I moved him into a testing role, made him fully responsible for that area and found he...

Re: PRINCE2 - Studying and Preparing for Practitioner Exam

I did my PRINCE2 training with QA, who provided an excellent experience. The only downside perhaps is that they are expensive. My training was funded so I didn't have that worry. They have training locations in the South West.

Re: PRINCE2 - Studying and Preparing for Practitioner Exam

Congratulations on passing your PRINCE2 Practitioner exam. If you are thinking about Agile, it's worth looking at the Certified Scrum Master course.

Re: How to Find a Great PMP Mock Exam Online

One other tip that served me well for the exam was when stuck on a question, move on and come back to it later. Quite often, the answer to another question will act as a memory jog and help you answer the question you were stuck on.

Re: How to Find a Great PMP Mock Exam Online

I agree with Cornelius, mock exams are a great way to prepare for the PMP exam. I used software to simulate the exam and as far a possible reproduced conditions on the day at home. I took several mock exams, and as it turned out, they were very close to my experience on exam day. I'd recommend this ...

Re: Is experience as a Game producer relevant to PM?

As TonyD says, the project manager and business analyst roles are different. However, a business analyst can be the project manager's best friend carrying out Requirements Analysis and supporting him/her during the project.
