PMP Preparation Program, Learn & Earn

PMI West Bengal Chapter conducted a four-day preparation program for those aspiring for PMI's Project Management Professional (PMP)® examination. The sessions organized in Kolkata on 9 and 10 May and then again on 15 and 16 May provided PMP® aspirants the knowledge they need in form of handbooks, practical examples, personal experiences of preparation, and tips and tricks before and during the exam. Candidates from different companies participated in the program that ended with a mock test.

The chapter held a Learn & Earn Session on "Digital Strategy for Business Leaders" on 16 May. Rimjhim Ray, co-founder and director of Unmarketeer, which works with brands such as Videocon and Marriott across the globe, conducted an interactive session with chapter volunteers. The session focused on the practical steps to create and implement a digital strategy that delivers business results. There were discussions on how changes in consumer behavior and trends are impacting companies across sectors like retail, manufacturing, and pharmaceutical. Ms. Ray also presented case studies on digital implementation.

The next Learn & Earn was on agile project management techniques on 27 June. It was the fifth such session that mainly focused on tracking projects that follow agile techniques in project management and information on PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® examination.

The speaker was Saikat Dutt, who has over 16 years of IT industry experience and has expertise in managing largescale, multi-location, and mission critical projects. After a recap of the first four sessions, he deep dived into agile tracking methods like burn down charts, burn up charts, cumulative flow diagram, Kanban board, and sprint retrospectives.
