Topic Teasers Vol. 67: 10,000 Kid Hours

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

Question: I read in Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell that to be really successful at something, you probably have to have about 10,000 hours invested in it--and that most people start as kids. I’d like my kids to be in the project field, but I don’t really know how someone can get that many hours experience in project management or agile practices.
A. Start with your kids at a very early age and blend the logic and selection process of project management into their day-to-day life. If you are creative, it shouldn’t take much time but rather just an awareness of what you are doing.
B. Ask your local Boy Scout and Girl Scout chapters if they can offer a series of 10 project management badges. If each one takes about two weeks’ worth of work, that’s 100 hours right there.
C. Plan to send your child to summer camp for project management when other kids go off for outdoor living, theater experiences or coding instruction. Children should have made a career decision by 7 or 8 so that they can get the most background possible.
D. Children have so little time to just be kids. Don’t make any attempt to teach them anything at home; they get plenty of education and homework at school. Once they arrive home, just let them relax.

Topic Teasers Vol. 64: Important RDS Shifts

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

Question: I hear the PMP certification exam is changing. Frankly, I already have my PMP certification and this news doesn’t really seem to be anything I should care about. I’m trying to figure out if I need to pay attention. Is there any reason that current PMPs need to know what is changing on the exam?
A. No, you can be sure that this information will be reflected whenever a new version of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) comes out. Until then, the content and details of what is changing and why will have no impact on you.
B. No, the PMP exam is exclusively for those who don’t currently have a certification and want one. If you already have it and are employed as a PMP, this is information that you can feel comfortable in ignoring.
C. Yes, there are several potential new roles in an organization that may be directly affected. Plus, a PMI role delineation study shows that PMP roles are shifting and you may need to know the direction to lean in order to keep your worth to your organization high.
D. Yes, if you work with an agile team you will need to know the details of these changes to the PMP exam, as they are identical to the PMI-ACP exam changes that are happening soon.
