PDUs While I Commute

I love learning while I drive to and from work. What an amazing way to take a waste of time and making it useful. Talks are useful and varied. Always able to find something I want to hear more about.


Excellent Podcasts


I have been listening these podcasts since my last PMP renewal. Practical, 100% real application to projects in Colombia , South America. The best way to learn and gather PDUs. Love it!!!

Bravo - PMP Saver

The podcasts have helped me retain my PMP. I started listening to the podcasts as a way to retain my PMP.  I have thoroughly enjoyed them and you've done a good job with your guest selection.

I have enjoyed them and will keep up with them immediately instead of an after the thought PDU attainer.  

I would like to hear more discussion on Agile and the DOs and DON'Ts.   The Agile hybrid concerns me, like being a little pregnant.  I think with agile projects need to be all in or not.  I would like to hear discussions on others thoughts.

Thanks again for your enthusiasm, the time you spend and your dedication.

I loved PM Podcast. I friend of mine have already talked about it but due to many of things to do I was postponing my subscription. Now that I had time to listen two Podcasts I realized how instructive it is. 
Thanks for making this possible.

I think that this is awesome.  It gives me a way to earn PDUs in various ways.  I am at the end of my renewal and needing only a few more to make it over the hurdle the podcast have truly saved me time in looking for specific types of PDUs such as technical.
Thank you very much!

Excellent Site.  You can review the podcast over and over until you really understand the topic being studied.

Great way to round up the rest of your PDU's


This podcast provides a great introduction to new methods of project management and to more specific examples of the application of PMBOK procedures in real life.
The host is pleasant and well versed in PM duties and requirements.

Informative, Lively

Big fan of the Project Management Podcast. Great listening on the commute to work, or even on lunch hour. Easy way to get PDUs, and yet informative without being stuffy. The guests are interesting and know how to keep attention while still being highly informative.

PM Podcast opinion

I have recently discovered the PM Podcast series and I am very pleased with what I've discovered. I find the range of topics to be extensive and very encompassing, which allows me to find relevant info on whatever I want quite easily. The fact that I can listen almost anywhere is extremely convenient and the PDUs earned allows me to maintain my certification. If any of these points appeals to you, then I strongly suggest you check them out.


Leaning through others

Listening to the Podcasts is a great way to obtain PDU's and to get ideas to use in my PMO team meetings.  The PM Podcasts are informative and very enjoyable.

Look forward to podcasts

I am a certified Project Manager who also serves as Knowledge Manager in Jacksonville, Fla.

I so look forward to these podcasts - I find them extremely valuable and thought-provoking!


Great for Cleaning up PDU's


A nice way to look into various PM topics and to get some PDU's along the way.

PM Podcast : Value Adds for Project Managers

Highly appreciate and thank you for putting together and managing such a value add repository for project managers.


PM Podcast- good stuff

Hi, I began listening to your podcast just over a week ago and I think its great.  Its nice to see what others in the field are really doing and thinking about as it relates to topics I deal with in my own world.

PM Podcasts have been GREAT

I have thoroughly enjoyed the PM Podcasts, not only to supplement my efforts towards earning my PMP Certificate, but also the additional insights and highlights that the PM Podcast provides for working within Project Management position overall.
Keep the PM Podcasts coming as they are a valuable asset for any Project or Program Manager in any discipline.
Hope you get well soon Cornelius.

Great way to earn PDUs

This is the best way I can find to earn much needed PDUs for recertifying my PMP.  It's timely, helpful and convenient.


Valuable Resource for PMs

This site has been instrumental in maintaining my PMP certification.


GREAT Resource

I used the Prep-Cast as a tool when studying for my PMP exam and went back to those podcasts time and time again- such a great tool! So now that I have passed and earned my PMP certification, I was excited to see more podcasts to continue to learn from and maintain my certification.

I have a 1 hr commute each way to work. I listen to all sorts of podcasts. I found this podcast by accident. It was like Christmas. I had no idea it existed. What a wonderful resource and presented in format that keeps you engaged. What you are doing is awesome. The ability to later download presentations is a massive bonus to help reinforce the topic. It is like finding another present hidden in the chaos of paper and boxes after gift opening. Thanks a million.

Enjoy Learing

I thought that the podcast was informative but convenience.   Thank you for the board range of subjects.    


My GO-TO for all things PM

Firstly, I passed my PMP on the first attempt using only Cornelius' PMP program.  I thought, let me see what this PMP course is about and I was pleased to discover that I could learn with Cornelius and a copy of the PMBOK.  I purchased his program and the exams.  Made my own flashcards. Memorized with word pictures.  Made brain dump sheets. I did 2-3 videos/day over the summer 
and in the fall took the exam.  Thanks, Cornelius*********************************************************************
Secondly, I like to listen to the PM Podcasts to accrue my PDU's.  I've connected my PM learning to Cornelius' voice and can't seem to go to other PM sites!  ************************************************************************************
Lastly, I'm always intrigued by the titles of the PM Podcasts and like to be able to choose between many topics that are relevant to my position.***************************************************************************************************

Excellent way to learn on the go

I'm always finding new material that is introduced by the guests on the podcast which is a great way to keep up to date with the changing PM World.
Time to find these things out can be difficult to find however with the podcast one can learn while commuting to and from work or even mowing the lawn or doing housework.
There is also an excellent reference to where the PDUs should be attributed which makes recording them easy.

Dear Cornelius,

I am listening to your PM Podcast frequently since 2014 and I can say that it keeps getting better every day :). I remember when you had a long podacsts 1h or longer, I liked it. Did you shorten it because it was request from the listeners? I know it is very hard to keep people attention for long discussions, but sometimes I think it is OK to have long podcasts it can deliver a better message to the listeners.

I have just finished my exams in AFW it supported by IPMA institution. It is not as great as PMP, but it will do for my daily work.

I hope this podcast will continue, by the way, do you have a vision how this podcast will be managed in the future? Will you have PM Podcast assistant?

Kind regards,
Janis Rusmanis

Thank you

I really appreciate having this resource to earn free PDUs. I would have been hard pressed to fulfill my PMP requirements without your site.


Convince or get convinced

I have recently cleared PMP on March 14, 2017. PM Podcast is one of the best tools that helps in developing concepts in a convincing way. I really appreciate the efforts put in. I am a firm believer of either you convince others to accept your view or be ready to get convinced by others to accept their view. But in either way, it triggers logical thinking and approach, which I believe as the best Project Manager's basic weapon. I recommend new aspirants to follow basics.

Very useful podcast for project management

I'm really grateful to your podcasts which has greatly helped me to learn few key topics in Project management. Series covering your interviews with industry experts is helpful to learn from their personal experiences. Thank you for your help to project management community.

The Best

Lot of insight in many of the interviews. Wealth of knowledge. However I am surprised at some PMs command of English. Communication being a vital aspect of PM I was taken aback at some PM interviews. But overall the best site to get a lot of understanding into this complex profession which is evolving every day. Thank you Cornelius for this. Ever indebted.

Having heard more than 200 episodes of the great PM-Podcast I want to give a big "thank you" to the great Cornelius Fichtner. You truly brought Project Management knowledge sharing to a new level. A definitely bullshit free podcast – sometimes entertaining, sometimes a critical mind but always educating. Hope you will keep on posting!


A strong recommendation to all fellow project managers, program managers, project portfolio managers, PMOs

Excellent Information

Have been listening to the podcasts and reading the associated white papers.  Good information for practioners.


Terrific tool


I like this podcast very much.
It is a terrific tool to keep knowledge flowing about PMP best practices. It also helps to maintain motivation towards recertification.
Thanks a lot for the interviews!


Great information

I been listening the podcast for the last month, it is really a great information!!
I also recommend  it to some friends, they were looking for ways to earn PDU
for their re-certification.




Indeed a big help in my day to day work as am a PM working on new implementation for my org. Every session has a take away. Thank you very much.


Awesome Tool

I have being using this site and material for 4 years now...  I am growing from the material in general and also meeting my PDU needs for my PMP.  Please continue to do what you are doing because without it I think we (all project managers) will miss out on something truly special and priceless.


Great for Ride Home

A relevant tool to listen to while driving home.  Keeps old ideas fresh, and fresh ideas coming.  Thanks!


PM Podcast - A great tool, ally and enjoyable

As always, I've enjoyed most of the PM Podcasts (along with the Prepcast series for PMP training).
I really enjoyed Episode 387 with Jamal and Cornelius as they discussed Project Portfolio Management in Theory and in Practice. Jamal provides some very good insights and calls out specific critical questions that we all, as Program, Portfolio, and Project Managers should be asking when reviewing new projects.

Inspiring Podcast

I always enjoy the various topics covered in the podcast.  I am often very, very surprised over the topic and how they catch my interest. In the beginning I just listing and later on I am studying this topic in more detail. For me it is important when the person interviewed speak about their personal experience. Here I get in a short time new inspiration which I can use in my daily business. It helps me to broaden my view not only in the technical project management skills but more in the way how I can approach a situation.  


I know it takes up a lot of time to prepare, conduct and broadcast the interview and I want to say thank you.

PDUs earned by watching the Podcasts are not registered!

Hello PM Podcast Colleagues,
I have been listening to your podcasts and taking down notes of each one of them. When I registered them through PMI website, it has now stopped showing them on my dashboard. I have till now registered 45 PDUs only till 10th March they were registered amounting to some 40.5 PDUs but now when I claimed about 3 PDUs they are not registered though they are approved.
Do you possibly know the reason?

Hello Rahul -- Unfortunately I do not know what might be the cause of this. Your best way of action is to write to [email protected] and ask them directly. Don't forget to include your PMP/PMI ID numbers and maybe even include a screen shot of where you are seeing the problem. Then they can help you directly.

Great Podcast, loads of learning

Lionbridge Technologies Inc

This podcast has really enable me to become a better, not only Project Manager, but professional in general.
Listening to different testimonials, some of them that intersect with my work and everyday challenges, has enabled me to generate a different perspective of the work that i do and give me insight into how to face problems that come across.
It has also enable me to think of myself not just as an individual doing my work, but as part of a wider community. We get sometimes so embedded in our own tasks that we lose the overview.
This coupled with the PDY claiming ability to maintain my PMP certification is just the cherry on top of the cake.
Thank you so much for putting this together and continuously delivering interesting topics.
