2021-11-05: Presentation at the "PMI Greece Annual Project Management Conference 2021"
Yiannis Vithynos was a speaker at the Conference on Thursday 4 November, with topic: "Leading transition for improved benefits realization".
It has now begun to be understood by the wider community of corporate and project leaders that the goal of projects is not only to create the deliverables, but also the benefit that will lead to the creation of value for the organization.
In order for the project benefits to begin being realized in the most efficient and effective way, leaders must support not only the formal change, but mostly the substantial transition to the new situation that will be the result of the project.
A change can be made relatively easily: a project implemented according to its standard objectives can lead to the installation of new software, a new process or a new organization chart. But for the benefits to come from the new situation, there must be an effective transition to the new mode of operation!
2021-10-12: Start of lectures at the Postgraduate Program "Project Management & Product Development" at the University of Peiraeus!
Yiannis Vithynos will be the instructor of the lesson "Certification in Project Management - Agile Project Management" of the Postgraduate Studies Program "Industrial Management and Technology".
The specialization of «Project Management and Product Development» covers two contemporary and complimentary fields.
The specialization of Project Management deals with the methodology, tools and techniques of planning, execution and monitoring of a project while Product Development deals with the use of modern principles, methods, practices and advanced tools for the creation and introduction of new, innovative products.
The modern curriculum is focused on meeting the real needs of the labor market, on the one hand covering cognitive requirements in two extremely useful subjects, on the other hand combining them in order to offer added value to the trainee.
2021-09-20: "Robotic Process Automation in Project Management": participation as panelist
On Friday September 17, Yiannis Vithynos participated in the monthly event of the global PMI ChapterXchange event!
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a software technology that can be used by anyone for the automation of online activities.
It is a way to minimize the time lost for standard, repetitive tasks as they will be transferred to "machines" or "robots". It is essentially "task automation".
RPA is a technology that already exists and is being used: project managers need to understand how they can take advantage of this technology in their daily activities.
Gradually adding further features to RPA can lead to the introduction of Artificial Intelligence techniques in project management!

2020-12-21: New format for the PMP examination!
For decades, the PMP certification exams consisted of 200 multiple choice questions that had to be answered in 4 hours. From January 2021 this will change!
The most important change in the exam has to do with the fact that the questions will not only be multiple choice with 4 options as now, but there will be a combination of multiple choice, multiple responses, matching, hotspot and fill-in-the-blank! You can see more details about the exam changes in our article here.
2020-11-17: Our seminars schedule for January - February 2021 has been announced.

All our seminars are implemented live, interactively through the online zoom application, while all certification exams are also taken online.

2020-10-10: Critical Path becomes Authorized Training Partner (ATP) of the Project Management Institute (PMI)!
We participate in the new program of Approved Educational Organizations for the provision of PMP training.
PMI, taking into account feedback from end-users, proceeded to renew the existing program of Registered Education Providers and certify Authorized Training Partners (ATPs). Some of the advantages which are provided only to the ATPs, include the training material from the PMI itself, sample questions also from the PMI itself, as well as the possibility for online training again prepared by the PMI! In this way, the value that the trainees will get from a seminar is multiplied!
