CAPM02 | Project Life Cycle and Project Management Processes – Preparing for the CAPM

Terri Echegoyen and Mark Phillipy continue to study for the CAPM exam. In this session we cover Chapter 2 Organizational Influences and Project Life Cycle and Chapter 3 Project Management Processes of the PMBOK. This is the second session in the mentoring series “Preparing for the CAPM”. Mark and Terri study together out of the fifth edition of the PMBOK as Terri gets ready to take the CAPM exam.

Preparing for the CAPM Series


I received such great feedback about “Preparing for the CAPM” series, I have decided to increase its value to those who are preparing to take the CAPM exam. In doing so, I have packaged the series into a full blown CAPM Prep program. The new and better series is the center of the site. Select here to learn more about the SensiblePM CAPM Prep Program.
