10 Responses to Input, Tools and Techniques & Output of 47 Project Management Processes, PMBOK Guide 5th Edition

  1. Bruce Johnston says:

    TYVM. This saved me a LOT of typing. Your use of red and red strike-though text was intuitive.

    I did find a few typos after I had pasted the above “table” in to Excel and filtered for the “de-numbered” sets of unique data elements (Inputs and Outputs combined) and Tools : (plural vs singular, single vs double spacing, one case where the word separator was not ASCII(32), one actual misspelling (“collocation”) and that kind of thing). A couple of the process names are not exactly what is in the PMBOK (e.g. Quality Control vs Control Quality). The differences are so minor that only a computer notices them 🙂

    All-in-all, it was very helpful to use this table in combination with the 534 term definitions found at http://quizlet.com/29736968/pmbok-glossary-fifth-edition-flash-cards/

    I pasted this address in to my workbook as a source reference.

    • Javier Gutierrez-Martinez, PMP says:

      Hi, I’ve created some additional study material that can be complementary to this list.
      The following PMBOK 5th edition mind map presents a fully structured in graph with all the inputs, outputs and tools and techniques of each of the 47 project management processes.
      The map is divided in the following levels:
      1- Knowledge area
      2- Process group
      3- Process
      4- Inputs/Outputs/Tools & Techniques
      You can find it in Mindmeister on-line tool and export it to many other formats:
      http://www.mindmeister.com/361642879
      This mind-map format is especially useful for all those who are studying for the PMP certification as it allows you to collapse/uncollapse the different processes while you memorize them.
      Feel free to create derivate resources from this one adapted to your needs.

    Hello,

    Thanks for putting it with all the required details. Can I know why certain processes are in red and strike through? I could not understand it.

    Thank you!

    • guozspace says:

      It shows the changes between PMBOX 4th and 5th edition. Thanks.

  5. Wayne says:

    Very helpful, thanks

  8. Charles Choy says:

    Great summary! One correction to make: Tools and Techniques are missing from the “Monitor & Control Project Works” process. 🙂
