Velociteach, a top PMP exam prep and project management training company, is proud to announce a new podcast: “Manage This, the Podcast by Project Managers for Project Managers.” The podcast, which airs twice monthly, is a valuable resource for anyone seeking to hone their skills as a project manager. What makes top project managers stand out to their teams, senior managers, customers, and stakeholders? The Manage This Podcast is dedicated to answering this question and making the results reproducible for other project managers.

Imagine having access to the top project managers from organizations and industries around the world and having the chance to uncover what they do, how they approach their challenges and what they know. The Manage This Podcast is Velociteach’s newest contribution to a wide array of resources for project managers. “A podcast is a great way to share best practices and to share some of the recent developments in the project manager field,” says Velociteach podcast co-host and Executive Vice President, Bill Yates.

Nick Walker, an accomplished broadcaster who has worked at The Weather Channel, MSNBC, CNBC, the NBC Nightly News and the CBS Evening News, guides a lively discussion of the project management world with co-hosts Andy Crowe and Bill Yates, who bring a wealth of expertise to the podcast. Andy is the founder and CEO of Velociteach and the author of the top-selling textbook, “The PMP Exam: How to Pass on the First Try.”
Celeste Clancy oversees the production and deployment of Manage This and is the manager of InSite by Velociteach. InSite offers self-paced eLearning for professional development and is designed by the leading provider of project management education.

Topics range from PMP, CAPM, PMI-ACP, PgMP, and PfMP exam prep and test taking skills to real life experiences from successful project managers in diverse fields. In just the first few podcasts, Manage This has advised on changes to the PMP exam, offered advice for strategic and effective guessing on the PMP, and examined the philosophical differences and relative virtues of the waterfall and agile approaches to project management. In one podcast, Andy and Bill examine the critical importance of the Work Breakdown Schedule in successful project management, as well as how the WBS differs from the schedule, and the problems that can arise when they are not utilized correctly. In another, top project manager Mike Hayes shares incredible stories about the challenges he faced meeting the strict deadline of the torch lighting at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.

The Manage This Podcast also provides an easy and free way for project managers to earn Professional Development Units, or PDUs, necessary to maintaining accreditation they have already achieved. Each podcast earns .5 PDUs for the listener.
