Animated PM: Adventures of BroccoliMan
Project Office Woman and BroccoliMan Team Up to Fight PM Incompetence, and Improve PM Performance!
Episode 1: Listen In on a Progress Report For a Current IPMA Project
BroccoliMan is our super-hero project manager; he selected broccoli for his persona because it is a most-green, most-healthy, and most-powerful anti-oxident food.
Project Office Woman (POW), also a super-hero, brilliant, upward-mobile Functional Manager, has recently been appointed to lead the organization's Project Management Office.
Her primary objective is to consolidate the organization's Capital, Operational and Project/Program portfolios into one well-managed executive-led initiative. She is still learning the ropes about PM, but as an experienced Manager in her organization, POW really knows her way around.
The purpose of the subject project, the focus of this episode, remains a secret. It is one of the organization's largest projects in scope and impact, and it will have meaningful benefit for society. A large number of team members from all over the World are involved with the project.
See below for another episode in the adventures of Project Office Woman and BroccoliMan, as they work together to overcome evil, PM incompetence, and poor project performance!
Episode 2: Broc and POW Explore PM Certification
Project Office Woman continues to explore the discipline of project management. She encounters frequent mentions in the media about project management certification, and asks BroccoliMan if this would help their organization's PM Performance. BroccoliMan offers gentle guidance about the differences between offerings in the USA market. They agree that this subject is far too complex to be covered in one short episode.
Note that our IPMA-USA website offers a number of resources that can help you understand the most important differences between a variety of PM-related certifications, both exam-based, and advanced.
