New 'Somewhat Sequential' Launch Grid

The order of topics has changed on the Somewhat Sequential tab. This was done to match the teaching order now used by PMI Authorized Training Partners (ATPs.) So, if you have taken an ATP PMP class (or if you teach PMP classes) you will find the content sequence familiar and aligned with the Student Handbook (and Instructor Handbook.)

Live Mentoring Page

Also new this month, is the Live Mentoring preview page. Starting in September, I will be hosting live weekly Zoom mentoring sessions. This program is similar to the very popular series I run for the PMI-ACP. Read materials in your own time, then join me to ask any questions you may have and review exam questions on the weekly topics. Members also get extra exam questions to test their knowledge and access to a members-only LinkedIn Group to share resources and study tips.
The community group and weekly schedule of topics create accountability to your study plan. If you need an extra push and want to learn in a cohort of peers with live Q&A check it out. The weekly topics follow the new ATP teaching sequence, so they are a familiar revision sequence for anyone who has taken a PMP bootcamp.

More details to come on this, but if you are interested, I suggest you Join the Waitlist to stay informed.

July - August Give Away - Catapult Climate Challenge

Record-breaking temperatures worldwide are putting humans and the environment under stress like never before. So, for this month's donations to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), we will be giving away four Polar Bear adoption kits for anyone who plays the new Catapult Climate Challenge game.
Just play the game here and send in a screengrab of your results to be entered into the draw. Since polar bears are increasingly at risk, the game's theme is Risk Management. So, answer six risk management related PMP questions to be entered to win one of four Polar Bear adoption kits (donation to WWF, plush toy, polar bear fact sheet) to anywhere WWF ships.

Light Relief - Asteroids

Are the crosswords making you cross? Are the sequence sorting puzzles seemingly impossible? It sounds like you need to blast them all to pieces! The Word Games and Extra Games pages now feature an Asteroids mode that lets you shoot everything in sight until there is next to nothing left.
Clicking on the Play Asteroids button brings up an old-school Asteroids spaceship; you can maneuver using the arrow keys and press the spacebar to fire. Refreshing the page restores normal functionality until your next rampage.

Site Restore

After playing the Asteroids game, please be sure to restore the site by pressing F5 or the Refresh button on your browser so that other people can use the Word Games and Extra Word Games pages as intended. Thanks!
