UP NEXT: Project Integration
Every facet of human life is a project. Every little step we take, from the moment we wake up up to the time we settle to sleep, is filled with mini projects. It's then not a stretch to assume that the way we handle actual projects (from work, school, etc.) is reflection of the way we handle the biggest project there is - our existence. That's why it's doubly important to come up with the perfect habit of proper planning and management of projects.

situations are called matrix organizations. Strong matrix organizations have characteristics
of projectized organizations. Weak matrix organizations have characteristics

I took the boot camp last Monday thru Thursday and I passed my PMP, on my first attempt, on Friday afternoon.
I took my bootcamp last week and passed the next day. My instructor was easily one of the best instructors I've ever had.
I leveraged the course as somewhat of a capstone to my preparation period. I took the exam the very next day after the boot camp ended, and passed.
