Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Casey Ayers, and welcome to my course, Developing Project Schedules. This course is the sixth in our newly updated series helping you prepare for the latest version of the PMP exam based on the sixth edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge, better known as the PMBOK guide. By completing this course, and others in our PMP prep series, you'll not only be better prepared to ace the certification exam, but critically we'll also completely fulfill the mandatory training requirement that must be met before taking the exam. The PMP, or Project Management Professional certification, is consistently listed as one of the top five most valuable certifications for IT professionals and is also broadly applicable to a wide range of industries. Given how much new value can be created from successful projects, businesses in all sectors and of all sizes need capable project managers today. A PMP builds the skills needed to succeed and opens new doors for those with the certification. Building on topics first discussed in Project Schedule Management, the preceding course in this series, we'll look at how schedules are developed and controlled, introduce concepts like the critical path methodology, as well as agile release planning, earned value management, and more. By the end of this course, you'll be ready to start applying your new knowledge to the development and management of schedules for your project team. This course, and others in the series, cannot only help you learn more about project management and prepare for the PMP exam, but also serve as a great refresher for established project managers and is an opportunity to earn continuing education credit. I hope you'll join me on this journey to prepare for the PMP exam and learn more about developing project schedules, here at Pluralsight.
