Coverage of Agile Process in Rita Mulcahy’s PMP® Exam Prep-Ninth Edition

Agile Process in Rita Mulcahy's PMP® Exam Prep BookSince the publication of “Rita Mulcahy’s PMP Exam Prep, Ninth Edition” back in January, we have been getting a number of questions asking why the book does not cover Agile Process.  These readers note that A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Sixth Edition, discusses Agile through out and is shipped in a package set with the “Agile Practice Guide.”  Seeing what they consider an obvious disconnect they reasonably ask whether RMC is suggesting that there will be no Agile questions on the PMP exam.

Certification Exam Preparation: Understanding Beats Memorization

Understanding vs. Memorization
Why does RMC focus on understanding rather than memorization?  As RMC’s project management practice leader I’m often asked: “why can’t I just memorize the process names, inputs, tools, techniques, and outputs (ITTOs) and pass the exam?” The answer to this question is quite simple.  Understanding works, memorization does not, especially in the context of the PMP® exam. Let’s discuss understanding vs. memorization.

Master the Information in Rita Mulcahy’s Process Chart

When students discover Rita’s Process Chart, they often ask us, “Which parts should I memorize?” It’s a simple question, right? Unfortunately, the answer isn’t so straightforward. It’s more than just memorizing―it’s realizing that, in order to pass the exam, you need to thoroughly understand each process.

Be a Catalyst for Change

Agent of ChangeI want to introduce myself in my first blog on Converging 360. As leader of the Project Management Area of practice for RMC Project Management, I wear many hats within our organization. In addition to being a trainer, I am a speaker and presenter, subject matter expert, and curriculum developer. And as of today … I am also a Converging 360 blogger!

First of all, let me say that I am truly blessed. I was hired and mentored by Rita Mulcahy, and had the honor of working with her for 18 months.

Breaking Down the Project Charter

Rubik cube integration Projects are most successful when there is written authority for the project manager to plan and organize work. A project charter should be created by the project manager from input he/she gathers from the sponsor(s) and the key stakeholders. The project charter includes documentation of the projects goals and an understanding of what the high level problems and requirements are. The project manager uses the project charter throughout the project to make certain the business case and the project objectives can be met. Therefore, the charter becomes the mandate allowing you to gain “buy in” on the project and its goals. Given its purpose, the charter should have minimum jargon and be easy to read.
