How To Apply The PMBOK® Guide In The Real World? (04-5.1.1-A)

There is no question about the value of the PMBOK® Guide.

It is a global reference that is highly recognized.

It documents the processes and knowledge foundation to manage a single project, or more appropriately, a phase/stage of a project.

However, many, if not most of those who study this guide, they learn parts of it for the PMP® or other PMI certifications.

Further, we would be willing to say, that the vast majority of courses on the PMBOK® Guide are designed to help people pass a certification exam. Therefore, there are gaps today, mostly due to vital misunderstanding parts of the guide. These gaps in learning have a direct impact on the practice of project management and projects’ performance.

However, the SUKAD Way™ approach is different. We want to help YOU master project management. Mastering project management requires know-how. You need the know-how-to-apply the knowledge in the real world and on real projects.

Your project management coach is now ready to help you learn how to apply the PMBOK® Guide; are you ready?
