    26. 26. © Whizlabswww.whizlabs.comExam Tricks (1/2)• Watch for choices with common Project Managererrors• Take a night out before Exam day.

(Past project cost, task, task cost, risks uncovered)– Everything should be co-coordinated with stakeholders in the project– All roles and responsibilities should be clearly defined– WBS is foundation to all project planning and should be used onevery project
    28. 28. © Whizlabswww.whizlabs.comPMI-ism• Planning is very important and all projects mustbe planned• PMI does not approve of gold plating (addingextra functionality)• PM must control the project to Project Plan• Project Managers are wonderful, great, veryskilled and PROACTIVE people
