Discussion of: PMBOK (4th Ed.) - Chapter 1

Postby ghostpy » Thu 10 Jan 2013 2:31 pm

Hi folks, hope you're doing great.

I know nothing about Project Management, but got a lot of interest in learning the skills required to become great at it.

So, I decided to start reading the PMBOK (4th. Edition), and I thought it would be nice to share my thoughts with another readers of the book, commenting about the Chapters along the way while I'm reading them.

Today, I'm creating one Topic for every Chapter of the Book PMBOK (4th. Edition) in this Forum, so the information of each Chapter will not be mixed with that of other Chapters.

If you are reading the book too and would like to comment about the Chapters, please feel free to join this adventure, it shall be fun!! :D

HI there,

Thanks for the thought. It is a great idea. I have recently ordered the book and should expect to receive it soon. However, it would be a good idea to know which chapter you wish to discuss at the present time?

It is always a good idea to bounce ideas around.

Regards

Welcome Mohamed.Benmerikhi,

Thanks for joining!

In this specific Topic I would like to address only concepts of the Chapter 1 (Pags. 3 - 14).

Nevertheless, I will not leave other Chapters abandoned, so I'm creating one exclusive Topic for each Chapter so as to maintaining conversations focused on the Concepts of that specific Chapter.

Every "Chapter-Topic" will be placed inside of the "PRINCE2 and PMP" Forum, with the following names:
- Discussion of: PMBOK (4th Ed.) - Chapter 2
- Discussion of: PMBOK (4th Ed.) - Chapter 3
- Discussion of: PMBOK (4th Ed.) - Chapter 4
- Discussion of: PMBOK (4th Ed.) - Chapter 5
- Discussion of: PMBOK (4th Ed.) - Chapter 6
- Discussion of: PMBOK (4th Ed.) - Chapter 7
- Discussion of: PMBOK (4th Ed.) - Chapter 8
- Discussion of: PMBOK (4th Ed.) - Chapter 9
- Discussion of: PMBOK (4th Ed.) - Chapter 10
- Discussion of: PMBOK (4th Ed.) - Chapter 11
- Discussion of: PMBOK (4th Ed.) - Chapter 12

Couldn't agree more.

The good thing will be that, if six months from now someone finds this topic, he/she will be able to share some opinions with us, and probably we will be able to, beyond pure theory, give him/her some tips based upon our own experience.

So the discussion about the Chapters will remain open along time.
