This course was designed as a supplemental study guide for the major content areas of Chapter 3 of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), Sixth Edition. In this course, you will learn how processes in the Project Integration Management knowledge area encourage relationships among project processes to keep the project's activities coordinated and on track for success. You will begin to create the important project plans and documents that will help you manage, monitor, and control your projects. And you will start to develop thoughts on the actions you will need to take to formally close your project or project phase.
This course prepares learners to take the current edition of the PMI PMP® certification exam, which will be discontinued by PMI® as of January 2, 2021.
This course aligns with the PMBOK® Guide Sixth Edition. (The PMBOK® Guide is not included in the cost of this course and must be purchased separately.)
Taking advantage of online interactivity, the course contains a vocabulary game, flashcards, and other activities to help you master the material.
