Designed, developed, and published another project management learning game on my The Crowd Training Games pack. This game is based on travelling to different locations and answering questions at each stop. The questions for the first set are all based on the Project Quality Management knowledge area of the 5th edition of the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). Now that I have the base structure and all the gameplay figured out, I can create multiple versions of the game for the other nine knowledge areas, as well as create updated versions of the game for the 6th edition of the PMBOK once that is formally released.
Currently, the 30 day access to The Crowd Training Games pack for $30. This newest game release brings the number of games in the pack to 17 games. Since I am working on a full 6th edition project management professional PMP certification exam prep course in addition to more games to include in The Crowd Training Game pack, I am offering a 90 day access and a lifetime access for less than the 30 day access so you may get more games over time. The 90 day access is offered for a limited time for $23 and the lifetime is $25. Obviously, these won’t remain at that price for too long. But since I am just rolling out the new website and the new games, I thought I would extent generous pricing to my early adopters. Thanks and enjoy!

When I have instructed project management professional (PMP) certification exam prep courses over the last 10 years, an aspect all my students really appreciated were my illustrations of the concepts as I discussed them. I would at a minimum draw out the processes included in a knowledge area prior to my lesson on the topic.
The illustrations would be drawn on the whiteboard for every class. Some students would take pictures of the board or attempt to sketch their own versions in their notepads. I must have had drawn them hundreds of times over the 10+ years instructing the classes. Starting with my own studying for the PMP exam. As a visual learner, I prefer to ‘think in pictures’. It helped me prepare and pass the exam, as well as helping many others in my training sessions, I thought they may be beneficial to more people. And with YouTube, it is possible!
The videos of my whiteboard animations are only of my drawings at this point. I did not care my voice as I was drawing. Plus I would like to record my voiceover with a better quality microphone and get rid of any ums and ahs 🙂 Once I have the audio explaining the processes, inputs, outputs, and tool and techniques as I draw them, they will be uploaded to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZdjZVoQFYUOOFnLr2R3E4A
The series is called Drawn Out: Project Management
Currently there are only project management topics of knowledge areas, processes, ITTOs, and process groups according to the Project Management Body of Knowledge PMBOK (r) 5th edition. As I complete the PMBOK concepts, I may recreate my illustrations for ITIL/ITSM and Agile project management and the PMI-ACP exam.
Please let me know what you think! Thanks.
