I have been wearing dual hats over the last 3 years as a business analyst and project manager. Recently I committed to the project management career path, and want to grow my knowledge base in this area. My next habit will focus on reading A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge: PMBOK(R) Guide. It’s a daunting tasks, but I am hoping that making it a daily habit will help me break it into manageable chunks.
Habit: Read 8 pages in the PMBOK everyday for 66 days
Start Date: Sunday, 01/31/2016
Projected End Date: Wednesday, 04/06/2016
- Read the PMBOK!
- Start a study group at work with others interested in getting their PMP
- Watch 6 PMI webinars
- Attend a PMI-Minnesota Chapter meeting
- Post weekly on Mondays about my progress in improving my PM skills
Incentive: Attend the Agile PMP seminar!
Lofty Goal: Finding my passion!
I would like to get the most out of the Agile PMP seminar and I think reading the PMBOK will be excellent prep work. I am also hoping I can build on this habit to get my Project Management Professional certification in the near future.
