I have learnt mainly two things:

1. learn from others' knowledge and experiences.
2. Contribute your own knowledge and influence the community.

Thanks.

I learned a lot more than I can fit into a comment, from each and everyone I still learn everyday.

Long story short, this community helped me grow in many ways either by helping other grow, by being helped by others, contributing, participating and many other things.

The benefits and power of this community, so far, might not be obvious right away, but you will feel it over the years. You reap what you sow.

I fully understand your comment: "I learned a lot more than I can fit into a comment, from each and everyone I still learn everyday"

Dear Luís

I think the main lesson I draw from this community is that while PMI has a mainstream project management, there are also project management currents inside PMI that diverge at some points from the mainstream.

Finally a wake up call to reality that in theory all is easy but in practice is always difficult.

Dear Alexandre
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion.

Interesting what you wrote:
"I think the main lesson I draw from this community is that while PMI has a mainstream project management, there are also project management currents inside PMI that diverges to some points from the mainstream."

Want to share with us any of these specific points?

Do they make sense and are they applied in the field of project management?

Sometimes it's not clear is hard to notice the differences and this is only my point of view, we know that the PMBOK is a guide but happens to exist some groups that I will divide roughly in 3 categorias:

1. Purists - the PMBOK is a bible.
2. Pragmatists - the PMBOK is a guide , has good teachings but in practice is just a reference, we apply as we see fit.
3. Hybrids - the PMBOK is a good guide but project management is much more when mixing other theories. (Lean, Six Sigma, Empiric practices)

I think the case of points 2 and 3 mais more sense because Project management is dynamic, no project is equal so at any moment we may be forced to use other lessons to do a better job, which is what PMBOK basically teaches, it is a guide that provides us with a number of processes, which have to be taylored to each project, not necessarily have to be used and also never mentions that we cannot introduce concepts from other disciplines, techniques or theories.

In my point of view everything that contribute to do a better job is welcome.

Dear Alexandre
Thanks for sharing this share
I first heard the concept of "psychologically safe workplace"
To learn I had to go research a little more (with the internet it's easy)
Some of the tips for understanding this concept I gather here in the community.
I first heard the concept of "Minimum Business Increments (MBIs)"
To learn I had to go research a little more about the topic
