In this inaugural episode of Hacking Program Management, we are addressing the number one topic where DAU Instructors get questions in our in-residence and virtual classrooms; "What is going on with the new Back-to-Basics (BtB) PM Certification process and how does it affect me?"
Dr. Steven Moore, Professor of Program Management, DAU
Steve leads the curation and presentation of various topics of interest to members of the Program Management community with a specific emphasis on “hacks” the PMs can use to make their life easier and lower stress. Each session will provide at least one “hack” that will be highlighted during the webcast and documented in the minutes.
In his “day job,” Steve teaches ACQ 2030, ACQ 315, and PMT 3600 – all three of the Instructor-Led Training (ILT) required courses for the new BtB Practitioner and Advanced certifications. Steve is also the Course Manager for the BtB required PMT 3500, “Business Aspects” on-line course and the Mid-Atlantic Regional lead for ACQ 315, “Understanding Industry.”
