Hello,

First of all, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Caio Balthazar and I am about to finish a project management course. In order to get my certification I am performing a survey with the goal to identifiy the main dificulties faced by project managers as they use methodologies based on the PMBOK Guide.

Therefore, I would appreciate if you could participate in my survey! It will only take approximately 5 minutes to respond the questions. In case you agree to participate go to the following link: https://goo.gl/forms/HvaVJukG9Tk7ph4E3.

If you are interested in receiving the answers of this survey, please enter your email address in the last question.

Thank you very much in advance.

Best Regards,
Caio Balthazar

Dear Caio , There should not be any main / great difficulties when we follow / try to implement methods as per PMBOK. It is a guide or standard only.
I mention the below quote from PMBOK Guide which is mentioned in the page of " Purpose of PMBOK guide.
" this standard is a guide rather than a specific methodology. One can use different methodologies and tools (e.g., agile, waterfall, PRINCE2) to implement the project management framework."
So, try to adapt as per your organization's requirement's , resource availability etc.,

Dear Senkodi,

Thank you for your feedback!

I agree with you and I understand your argument. Maybe I was not clear enough. I know it is necessary to adapt the PMBOK Guide. But here in Brazil there are some “difficulties” stated by project managers when they try to use the PMBOK as a guide or standard only. For example:
- lack of historical information; and
- organizational structure of the Company.

My goal is to confirm these difficulties reported by project managers.

Thank you again for your time and comments.
Kind Regards,
