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. 98: The Need for Digital Badges

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

Question: I have a question about how I can best advertise my certification status with PMI. I know I can put that I am a PMP®, PMI-PBA®, PMI-ACP® or list other types of similar achievements I have earned. However, it becomes quite cumbersome to try to try to type them in or get them to show up on social media. Also, I hear two different stories about whether or not to use the registration mark ® after the letters. Is there a better way to do this?
A. Certifications attached to your name are inappropriate when using social media. Readers disregard them since you can just make them up whether or not you actually hold them. A better choice is to find some way in the message, text or tweet to reference your skill in project management through specific examples and your delight in passing the exams.
B. The fine print you sign when applying for the Project Management Institute exams states that you are not allowed to announce your certifications in any way other than on a business card. The print on the cart must be Helvetica 12 point and the color of the type must match exactly the color of the PMI logo.
C. What you need is a digital badge, which is a web-ready version of a certification. PMI has asked a third-party to distribute these to you. This allows you to get recognition on the internet for the accomplishments you have achieved that can be verified. Learn how to access these, if you qualify.
D. What you need is a design team to create a cut-and-paste logo for your business that shows your name and photo with all of the credentials you have earned. Place it into web locations you use by associating it back to your own personal computer through a URL created by a custom site that shortens links.
