Process Interconnection Diagrams

PREMIUM deliverable
by Talha Elgazzar

A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) explains process inputs and outputs in a graphical representation, but shows this individually for each process without connecting the processes in a knowledge area in one diagram. This collection of maps not only achieves this, but also has connected all project processes (except the integration processes) in the same diagram with a minimum number of lines crossing. This collection of PDFs includes a diagram of each knowledge area that shows all of the internal connections, and then all are put together in one map. Also included is a Project Integration Management Diagram. Collectively, they serve as a great study aid or a nice refresher for experienced PMs.

Topic Teasers Vol. 84: Drafting Career Blueprints

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: Luckily, a key department manager went to bat for us and we now have a standing team. I think this will help us produce deliverables more quickly, as we don’t have to get reacquainted and learn to work with a whole new group on each project. However, the “negative Nellie” on the team is already concerned that this will stall his career. How do I show my colleagues that this is a positive step and that it will help their career progress, not hinder it?
A. Plan for the organization to pay for as many certifications and college or junior college classes as possible. Insist that any coursework your teammates want to take is crucial to their success at their current work. All knowledge is powerful knowledge in the workplace.
B. No one can plan a future career, as promotions and opportunities are only given to those who have special connections or subservient relationships with those at the CEO, CIO and CFO level. You are puffing smoke to craft pipe dreams if you suggest otherwise to your friends.
C. Work with each team member to draft a blueprint of where they would like their career to go within the next five years. Help them choose, plan and implement important steps to allow them to be ready for opportunities along their desired path. It may not work, but it’s better than not having a plan.
D. As the old Doris Day song goes, “Que sera, sera. Whatever will be, will be. The future is not ours to see. Que sera, sera.” With the lightning speed changes in business occurring each day, it is impossible to envision what skills one will need in the future. Cross your fingers and hope.

Certification Outputs Versus Outcomes

by Mike Griffiths

It is not the output of planning (the plan) that is most valuable, but instead the outcome of undertaking the planning. There is a similar relationship with certification and certificates--learning a topic has more value than the output of receiving a certificate, a point lost on many.
