Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, everyone. My name is Casey Years and welcome to my course Project Scope Management. This course is the fourth and our newly updated Siri's 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 Pin Baht Guide. By completing this course in others in our P and P prep series, you'll not only be better prepared to ace the certification exam, but critically will 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, is one of the top five most valuable certifications for I T 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 will cover in this course include collecting project requirements, defining project scope, creating work breakdown structures and doing the work necessary to validate and control the scope of our projects. By the end of this course, you'll gain a new appreciation for the importance of managing projects scope, ensuring that our objectives remain the line with our requirements and with underlying business needs, and that further our team remains consistently attuned to this connection. Better scope management leads to more effective and efficient project work and insurers that what project teams create is exactly what's needed. This course and others in the series cannot only help you learn more about project management and prepare for the PMP exam, but also served 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 PNP exam and learn more about projects. Cut management here, a plural site
