  1. Wanda says:

    You have built a good web site! I am hoping you continue the good job. I seriously take joy in your posts.

  2. Naomi says:

    On process 3, with the inputs, did you mean Outputs from ‘Initiating’ Processes and not ‘Planning’ Processes?

    • guozspace says:

      Output from process 1 & 2 will become input for other processes, not only process 3.

    • Matt says:

      Process 3 inputs are correct as listed (reference PMBOK 4th, pg. 48). To the best of my knowledge, the key here is to remember that Planning is iterative and can take place throughout a project, at the beginning of each project phase. For example, as you plan phase 2 you will use the outputs from the (master) project management plan. See the Project Boundaries figure – PMBOK 4th, pg. 44.

  3. Poonam Sharma says:

    Good article. I was looking for one in this format.

  4. Adam says:

    Terrific paintings! That is the kind of info that are supposed to be shared around the web. Shame on the seek engines for now not positioning this publish higher! Come on over and seek advice from my web site . Thanks =)

  8. Raphitto says:

    This post inspired me to develop a Windows Desktop utility to help in the ITTO learning process. I’m not hosting the application on the web yet, but I can share it upon request. Send mail to raphitto@live.com

  9. Elaine Bird says:

    Would like to see a further breakdown of this great chart by Process Groups (groupings, i.e. Initiating, Executing, so on and so forth), I get confused when Execution ends and Monotiring/Controlling begins. However, this has been very helpful to my studies. Thank you.

  10. Raphitto says:

    My free application has been hosted for awhile since my last post. Please take a look at http://www.freewarefiles.com/Raphitto_program_76139.html

    Apologize in advance if external links are not allowed in this room.
