Earlier this year I earned a bunch of professional development units (PDUs) from Stanford University. Becoming a Stanford Certified Project Manager (SCPM) was fun and I truly enjoyed absorbing the subject matter. I’ve had a chance to use the strategic execution framework (SEF) at work. Starting this weekend I’m ramping up into full blown test taking mode. During late September I’m going to venture out to a computer lab in Colorado Springs to take the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Project Management Professional (PMP) exam.
