Our training program provides opportunities to improve basic and intermediate integrated program management knowledge and abilities. Key to our program is gaining a solid foundation in the principles of EVM and a thorough understanding of EVM data analysis techniques.
Data analysis allows management to identify early deviations from plans and take timely and effective corrective action. The integration of performance management, technical metrics and risk management processes are then introduced to the student. Finally, the capstone series integrates all of these elements and concludes with a case study demonstrating effective use of EVM. To satisfy training needs, the training program focuses on proven and effective processes that are broadly applicable in both industry and the federal government.
Professional Education Training Seminars
The College of Performance Management (CPM) provides training seminars as a key element of its professional education program. The training program provides opportunities to improve basic and intermediate Integrated Program Performance Management (IPPM) knowledge and abilities. Key to our program is gaining a solid foundation in the principles of IPPM and EVM and a thorough understanding of data analysis techniques. Data analysis allows management to identify early deviations from plans and to take timely and effective corrective action. The integration of performance management, technical metrics and risk management processes are then introduced to the student. Our Education program includes the latest guidance and “best practices” from the leading IPPM and EVM professionals. Our Education provides guidance for implementing performance management that is both effective for management and efficient for all programs. To satisfy training needs, the training program focuses on proven and effective processes that are broadly applicable in both industry and the federal government. Our capstone course integrates all of these elements and concludes with in-depth classes on how IPPM is implemented in both the public and private sectors..
The training program structure, consisting of six core areas or courses, CPM 100 – 500, is presented at each of the conferences. The areas of study in the Professional Education Program Training Seminars include the following courses:
- CPM 100 – Principles of Integrated Performance Management
- CPM 200 – Structuring Programs for Performance Management
- CPM 300 – Integrated Scheduling Principles
- CPM 400 – Integrated Baseline Planning and Maintenance
- CPM 500 – Performance Measurement and Analysis
Individual course certificates will be awarded for the successful completion of each of the individual course exams, (e.g., CPM 200.) Testing material is based directly upon Training Seminars presented at the current conference. Examinations will be held at the conference site after completion of the conference on Friday, May 24th, from 12:30 to 4:00 pm. The testing location will be posted during the conference.
Individuals may continue their progress toward earning the Graduate Training Certificate in IPPM by successfully completing testing in each of the five areas (previous tests apply) and by submitting your record of attendance at eight College of Performance Management conference symposia presentations or by writing a paper on College of Performance Management-approved integrated project management subject.
IPPM Certification Program
The IPPM™ Certification
The Integrated Program Performance Management Certification is a senior expert-level professional credential offered by the College of Performance Management worldwide. The subject matter involves performance planning, measurement and management of programs in a wide range of industries and environments. IPPM™ is a unique certification program because it covers the comprehensive disciplines involved with cost, schedule and technical performance management. IPPM evolved from CPM’s core Earned Value Management Professional Education Program by adding subject matter to fill gaps necessary to properly address the entire range of disciplines in Technical Performance Measurement / Benefits Realization Management (TBM); as well as agile / dynamic Schedule and Resource Management (SRM).
