    Interview with Joseph Phillips - PM Trainer and Author

    In This Episode:
    I had the pleasure of sitting down “virtually” over a zoom call with Joseph Phillips, an author, and trainer in the project management industry.  Joe is a well-established PM trainer and book author on the topic of project management. We spoke about his latest book and his thoughts on the PMP exam and PMP certification.  Joe has a diverse background in IT and project management and the certs, training, and experience to back it up.

    We also touched on PDUs a theme I have been discussing in recent interviews and blog posts and a variety of book recommendations - see the list below.

    This was a great interview, one of my favorites.  Joe was a genuine pleasure to talk with and I look forward to having him back in future episodes.

     Podcast takeaways:
     The key takeaway from this podcast is that we all earn and track our PDUS in a variety of ways - there is no one size fits all approach, but there are tons of opportunities to earn them.
