As informative as any PMP CE provider


enjoy listening to these podcasts, especially the interviews.  They're entertaining, and not boring.  I can even listen to them via Bluetooth on the speakers of my car without fear of boring the passengers, who do other things in life.  Now that's a testimonial.

Thank you!


I'm so glad these podcasts are available. It makes life so much easier! I'm desk bound most of my day and I can just play the podcasts and listen to them when I'm working on something lightweight.

Thank you PM Podcast!


I found this to be an extremely helpful tool to prepare for the exam. It follows the PMBOK guide really well so if the topic was particularly tricky for me, I could watch and have the guide open at the same time, but I could also just carry it around and watch it whenever I wanted. I also really liked the module 'quizzes' and the practice exam. The product was recommended by a colleague and it met my expectations well. I would definitely recommend it for the busy professional who is trying to fit in the time and attention and cannot get away for an in-class option.

PM Should be


Frascape Solution Limited

PM should be understand the major objective for the project and try to control any request that will sidetrack and impact the time & schedule & cost from the existing project.
Good people & communication skill is very important, it's because many stakeholders with their own agenda to push forward the new request whatsoever and they try to achieve their own objectives or goal, that why PM needs to be able to determine which benefit the project with cost effective and within schedule & resources to complete the project.

PDUs - Superb initiative


Confianza Tech USA

Very Satisfied.  Great initiative. Hardly anyone knows the essence of having a site with required PDUs than me, as I lost my PMP status (earned in 2007) at the end of 2011 and had to reappear in 2016 for getting certified again. Thanks a ton for this unique effort.

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.

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.

Christmas in Spring

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.

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.

Feedback


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

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.

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.
