Crowd Sourced Inspiration

My parting thoughts on PMI's 50th anniversary Global Conference

My impressions from day one of "Ask an Expert" at #PMIcon19

Ask The Experts -- at the global conference

What Does an Invitation to the ‘Ask the Expert’ Panel Mean to Me? #PMIcon19 #Inspiration



If you're attending the Global Conference and have taken the ACP exam, I would like to chat with you.  Sign up for a time or just stop by as I will be "hanging out" here during the conference.

Why am I interested in talking to you if you have an ACP cert?  I have a couple of reasons:

1) I mentor some aspiring project managers and would like to be able to set their expectations for the exam and to share stories from people what have the cert.

2) After PMBOK 6 and the Agile Addition, I am curious if you felt the exam covered the agile knowledge with the 10 PMBOK Guide Knowledge areas.

3) Do you have any study tips for future ACPers?  Your personal experience is a story waiting to be heard (Agile pun intended).

4) Has your career changed after getting the cert?  

5) Can you still tell me what the CRACK acronym represents?

In closing, I am interested in talking to you whether you have the cert or not.  I figure information I can get from Cert holders, I can share with Cert seekers.  I'm hoping to be able to create stories for this blog to recognize achievement and to inspire our professionals to grow!  INVEST in your profession ;)

My career hasn't changed but my thinking did in a positive way more aligned towards Agility.

Very interesting, thanks for sharing

David, thanks for this. I am preparing for the cert now.

I am preparing for the certificate , Thanks

I completed my PMI-ACP in 2012. Since then I have been utilizing my knowledge in my projects. I also taught few sessions through our chapter. Unfortunately, I will not be in global conference. Here is what I found about CRACK.

In the book Balancing Agility and Discipline: A Guide for the Perplexed Barry Boehm and Richard Turner coined the acronym CRACK which describes the properties of a good Product Owner.

Collaborative: Works well with development team and stakeholders. Is present within the team.
Representative: Has a good understanding of the product vision and is able to represent the stakeholder.
Authorized: Is empowered to make decision.
Committed: Shares the development team and stakeholder goals.
Knowledgeable: Understands and is experienced in the specific domain to guide the project to success

David, thanks for sharing

Thanks David for sharing.
I'm not holding the ACP certificate but I am planning to sit for it by next year. I'm looking forward to your findings.

"This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy."
