Course Overview (music) Hi, everyone. My name is Casey Ayers, and welcome to my course Project Integration Management. This course is the third in our newly updated series helping you prepare for the latest version of the PMP exam, which is 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. Some of the major topics we'll cover in this course include developing project charters and project management plans, directing and managing project work, managing and curating project knowledge, monitoring and controlling project work, performing integrated change control, and closing out projects and project phases. By the end of this course you'll have a strong understanding of the processes that tie project work together and allow project managers to orchestrate project work at the broadest levels. You'll also be better prepared for the courses that follow in this series, which will look closely at each of the components in project management that weave through the processes we'll discuss here. This course and others in the series can not 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 as an opportunity to earn continuing education credit. I hope you'll join me on this journey to prepare for the PMP exam and learn about project integration management here at Pluralsight.
