Wouldn’t it be great if you could get to better ideas faster? If you learn to master just two thinking skills, you can! Many of the PMI supported tools have origins in creativity. As such, these tools are best leveraged when you apply divergent thinking (to generate) or convergent thinking (to narrow). This session will explore the principles of divergent and convergent thinking and provide examples of techniques to maximize their power.

PMP® Study Guide

PREMIUM deliverable

Use this practitioner-contributed guide for help studying concepts presented in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)—Fifth Edition.

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.
