The Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification from the Project Management institute (PMI)® is widely accepted as the global benchmark to recognize proficiency in Project Management and it is the most recognized project management certification for working professionals.

However, the A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK® Guide)—Fifth Edition,Project Management Institute, Inc., 2013, on which the PMP® certification is based, is completely theoretical. In the real world, it is not only important that you are a certified PMP, but also important that you are able to apply the principles of PMP using real world project management tools such as Primavera P6.

For example:

  1. From the PMBOK Guide, one can understand Earned Value Management (EVM), but how can we obtain EVM Metrics with a Practical Tool?
  2. From the PMBOK Guide, one can understand Risk Management – Risk Categorization, SWOT Analysis, P & I value etc., but how can we take all of them and create a Risk Register with a Practical Tool?
  3. From the PMBOK Guide we can know the schedule variances, cost variances with Variance Analysis tools and techniques, but how can we obtain those values with a Practical Tool?

This is where “Practical PMP with Primavera P6 15.x” can help. This edition contains the 2016 changes for PMI-PMP exam and the latest new features in Release 15.x of Primavera P6.

Primavera P6 Professional R8.x is a highly sophisticated enterprise project management tool to manage large scale, multifaceted projects. This is the latest release from Primavera with a host of new features such as 64 bit installation support, additional filter criteria for codes, export XML as a job service, copy project as a job service, saving of resource selection in the resource histogram, Microsoft Project 2013 compatibility, selection and setting language before logging in.

Above all, it covers the whole spectrum of project management knowledge areas as defined in the PMBOK Guide, such as Scope, Time, Cost, Quality, Human/Material Resources, Risk, Stakeholder management.
