In this episode we'll discuss the unexpected changes in life and in projects, the whole point of the Lifelong Project, and you doing more than you believe possible. You can pass the PMP, earn the new certification, or accomplish whatever goals you set out to achieve.
If you want to pass the PMP exam, you'll first need to qualify for the exam and then create a plan for how you'll pass the test. Let's get that part straight right away: Your goal is pass the test. Your goal is not to take the test. Your goal is not to get a perfect score. Your goal is simply to pass the test.
You're a project manager. If you were assigned a project to build a condo, develop new software, upgrade a network, or any other possible task, you'd need to create a project management plan. You'd identify all of the requirements for the project and then map a way to achieve the goals of the project customer. Why should your effort to pass the PMP exam be any different?
If you want to be appear professional, in control, and as a leader in your projects don't freak out when things go wrong.
Projects are uncertain - things will go wrong, just as things happen in all projects, in businesses, and even in life. We can't always control what will happen, but we can control how we react.

Changes happen in a project, but that doesn't mean that everyone is going to be happy about the changes. Unless you want a project, a predictive project, to blow up, you need an approach to manage changes as they enter your project.
In this episode, I'll share insight to one of the most important activities you'll have to do as a project manager: expect and manage changes. Don't let changes wreck your project!
