You've come to the right place. Every month or so I will be featuring project management, security and business strategy related tools, sites and services that you can check out for free. I know the people who created and stand behind these products in these articles and I promise that I would not be featuring them here if they were not great people, software, and services.
This month, in no particular order of greatness, I am featuring:
- Cheetah Learning - a great training and certification provider who guarantees training for and passing the PMP in just 5 days
- GoSkills - an online learning platform that provides great business courses for anyone looking to improve their career right now
- Tesults - a web-based automated reporting application for test results that will make tech project managers' lives easier
- Meetime - a cool meeting management tool because project management is all about communication and any one sizeable project could have hundreds of meetings to plan, organize and facilitate.
Now....check these out!...
Cheetah Learning was the first company to offer Accelerated PMP Exam Prep over 15 years ago. Cheetah Learning has a consistent 98% pass rate and 95% of their business is referrals from their large and very successful alumni base. Cheetah Learning students and the companies they serve become the top performers in their industries. They offer PMP, PMI-ACP, CAPM, and CCPM prep courses as well as continuing education classes in a variety of project management, negotiations, and accelerated learning topics. Oh, and you WILL pass the PMP - it's guaranteed by Cheetah!
Are you a project manager who is tired of going through the motions or tired of experiencing small pay raises with little or no career advancement? Want to take control of your career and your life? It will be an adventure, but a very rewarding one.
With you go from zero to certified in just 5 days. Yes... 5 days. Train, test, pass. Oh, and guaranteed to pass. I can't make this stuff up.
Cheetah Learning is not like the other training and certification programs or organizations. What they give you is more of a full life plan. It will seriously change the way you live in other aspects of your life. You will find yourself approaching, planning, living and succeeding differently than you ever have before. You won't be Superman, but you will accomplish more in a more efficient and effective manner and you will see it as it's happening - and others will, too.
Remember "Be like Mike" from the 80's? That, of course, was Michael Jordan. Now it will be "Be like Jeff" or "Be Like Nancy" or whatever everyone calls you. You will be changed. Trust me. Success will carryover to other parts of your life.
But don't just take my word for it. See for yourself - you won't be sorry. And it's guaranteed... remember. Cheetah wants you, to want them. And you should.

Are you tired of those useless, never ending meetings? Have you had a terrible meeting today? You are not alone, but there is a better way. MeeTime is a beautiful timer app to make meetings less soul-crushing.
Employees are wasting up to 2 years of their lives sitting in useless meetings and no wonder as three-quarters of people have never received any formal training on how to conduct a meeting. Bad meetings are getting a lot of press recently with Elon Musk recently telling his employees to walk out of unproductive meetings and Samsung is incorporating meeting timers as a push towards a work smart culture. MeeTime was conceived as a simple way to help people run meetings more effectively.
That's it for this month. My plan is to present 4-6 new software tools and services in the area of project management approximately every month. I know the people behind this products and services and I know they are passionate about their offerings. Give them a try - you won't be sorry.
