The new (and harder) PMP certification exam originally planned for last December 15th has been postponed twice, first to the end of June 2020, presumably to help training companies adjust, and now to Jan 1st 2021 because of the current pandemic related crisis: However, it is coming.
This shift is will mean quite a change for training companies, for trainers, but most of all for the exam candidates. The current material (already quite a hefty load) will represent approximately 50% only of the new materials. PMI has shared the list of recommended reading for the exam and it is a just as interesting collection of books as it is no quick read - to be exact: 10 books(!), including the Agile standard and the PMBOK - check it out here.  Agile experience is also recommended.
This clearly means two things:

 “Hello, please come in. Take a seat. How are you today?” It often starts like this. “I wanted to thank you for all of your hard work, especially your contributions on the legislative burden, as you know, we are pretty stretched and the FCA keeps piling on new regulation.” 

Pause, do you know what is coming next? ” There’s a new requirement from the FCA, something to do with key decision-makers being qualified and their decisions audited and traced. The leadership team have discussed it and your name came up. You have been doing good things and we think it’s time you had an opportunity to shine. We need you to take a lead on this project.”

Thankful

In a week where we have seen the world go into turmoil around this rapidly advancing virus, we have to give a shout out to one of our amazing clients...

Our Director & CEO received the following short email (anonymised)

"Dear Alex,

The finance leadership would like to recognise the contribution Frank made to the ******* program and have agreed a discretionary “bonus”.  Can you include in an extra invoice?"

Frank has worked on contract with them for 15 months and whilst we learn that IR35 has been put on hold for 12 months, the last few months have created some uncertainty in the market place around future earning for contractors.  This makes the gesture from our client even more poignant!  He was over the moon!

A big thank you for your generosity in these fast-moving uncertain times!

I was reading an article by Glenn Llopis, published by Forbes entitled 6 leadership failures that put your company at risk. In his first paragraph he writes about leadership not recognizing or capitalizing on the need for change in a rapidly evolving marketplace.

You can read the article here forbes.com

For fifteen years I have been interested in organisational development and specifically in the way in which an organisation adapts to meet it’s evolving future.
