I don’t have much time. I am a very busy person. I can’t be spending 5 days going though this project management training program…”, or
“Listen, I have over 20 years of project management experience, and I could easily teach all about Project Managemnet easily. How about you just give me the course material, and books etc., and I’ll prepare for the exam myself. And I am not asking for any favour, I’ll pay for the material and books. In fact, I think that if I just go through the PMBOK Guide, I’m pretty sure I can pass the exam easily.”
Some post on the PMP Forum,NLP Course NLP課程 about whether there is a need to study the PMBOK guide or not?
The PMP Training coordinators listen patiently, and says something like: “Yes, you can read the PMBOK guide. But that alone may not be sufficient. What you need is a thorough understanding of the Project Management Methodology. And you also need to understand what PMI like to test you on in the PMP exam. Just reading the PMBOK guide, and understanding “how it applies to the PMP exam” are very different things”. You need to be in an “exam taking mode” when you study the PMBOK guide.
Reading the PMBOK Guide is very boring!
