Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 11, 2008
Denise DeCarlo of Mindavation today announces the release of "Your Personal Mentor", a self-paced dynamic project management learning program. Project Management is a complex and dynamic profession, and is key to any business's strategic success. But it can be mastered when broken down into practical components that are logically linked together. Your Personal Mentor - Project Management™ is a self-paced adaptive learning tool that can help you custom design your own learning program, based on what you know and how you prefer to learn. This capability can help you learn what you want, when you want, to the depth you want, and in an efficient manner. The considerable Project Management knowledge content is structured around "knowledge objects" that include Concepts, Definitions, Examples, Procedures, Processes and Key Ideas. Over three hundred and eighty optional audio voice-overs and nearly one hundred text narratives add more richness and depth to the learning experience.
Mindavation has been in business since 1999 providing project management training and consulting services. In bringing Your Personal Mentor - Project Management™ to the market they have partnered with another educational software development firm specializing in Project Management to provide this market leading educational tool to their international client base.
Nearly 800 single-choice, multiple-choice and interactive drag-and drop questions (with the optimal answers) are provided for all of the 95 subject areas to "test your knowledge". Students will return to their professional environment better prepared to confidently manage a project from start to finish. All nine PMI Project Management Body of Knowledge ("PMBOK®") areas are covered in depth, and the content is related back to the 44 PMBOK® processes.
Interactive simulation games provide both fun and challenges for any project manager. Learn how to manage resources under uncertainty, make risk based decisions and how to create a schedule that works using these project management simulations. Taken all together, these simulation games offer challenges from easy to advanced; to sharpen skill levels for all project managers. With Your Personal Mentor™, you can gauge your strengths and focus on areas where you want to further sharpen your skills, increase your practical knowledge, and refine your professional capabilities.
This powerful and rich learning tool can be used over and over again as a knowledge resource for years to come. If you are in need of PMI® PDU credits, this course tool offers up to 47 PDUs.
