Our goal at Simple PDH is to make learning easy. Maintaining credentials for professional certifications should not be difficult or expensive. At Simple-PDH.com, you study, learn, and earn – it’s simple!
We are also committed to delivering new content on a regular basis. Maintaining your professional certifications involves sustaining basic knowledge and refreshing the fundamentals as well as learning about new and emerging trends in industry.
Therefore, we are pleased to announce our newest course – Disruptive Innovation. This course launched on 1 March 2016, and is suitable for professional development hours (PDH) in NPDP (New Product Development Professional), PMP® (Project Management Professional), and PEM (Professional Engineering Manager). Because disruptive innovation is a way to think about new product and service strategy, this course provides continuing education units (CEU) in the Project Management Institute’s (PMI®) Talent Triangle™ for Business and Strategic Management.
What You’ll Learn
Disruptive innovation, a term coined by Clayton Christensen of Harvard University nearly 20 years ago, is a strategic theory backed by empirical study. In this one-hour (1 PDH) course, you will learn:
- Definition of disruptive innovation,
- Definition of sustaining innovation,
- Examples of disruptive and sustaining innovations,
- How to apply disruptive innovation to your business, and
- Challenges to theory and application.
In addition, you can download a one-page tip sheet / study guide. You will have access to the practice quiz and final quiz as many times as you need during the enrollment period. Upon achieving a 70% passing score on the final exam, you can download and print your completion certificate as evidence of professional development and continued education.
How Does It Work?
The course is fully online with short topics and lessons to review. To maintain integrity for the requirements of continuing education, each lesson is timed and you simply click the “Mark Complete” button as you finish studying each topic or lesson. You can pause the course at any time and come back later. Also, you can review completed lessons and topics as many times as you like during the enrollment period.
Moreover, the course includes short videos and self-assessments. In Disruptive Innovation, the printable self-assessment allows you to benchmark your firm’s strategy in new markets and with product development projects.
Once you’ve completed each topic in all six lessons, you will take the final exam. The final quiz consists of ten (10) multiple choice questions. Again, a score of 70% allows you to print and download your completion certificate to verify PDHs for NPDP, PMP (general or strategy), and PEM.
Is It Affordable?
Yes, Simple PDH is easy and affordable. Disruptive Innovation is available for a 60-day enrollment period for US$29.95. With our introductory coupon code (SPE2016), you will save 50% (good through 31 May 2016). Payment with a credit card or PayPal account is easy and secure.
The theory of disruptive innovation is designed to cause change in the marketplace. This is a well-designed course for our launch as we intend to disrupt conventions of slow and expensive maintenance of professional certifications. With a clean and easy-to-use online technology base, you can study, learn, and earn simply!
