May 22, 2019 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Phileas Fogg is the protagonist in Jules Verne's novel, "Around the World in 80 Days," and proves that the project management process works in a voyage to beat all other voyages! Listen to how Phileas used the project management processes that we use every day to navigate various (and dangerous) risks in order to get what he thought would be the greatest reward - a successful trip around the world. However, at the end, there is a snag, and it looks like he doesn't make it! The project team seems to have an answer. But, is it good enough? No spoilers here - just good project management work.

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.
