5th Edition PMBOK® Guide–Step 6: Memorizing Inputs & Outputs (Communications Management Part 2)

1. Introduction

In this next series of posts on memorizing the processes, we move on to the final step 6, which is memorizing the INPUTS & OUTPUTS associated with each of the 47 processes.   In order to breakdown the memorization into more bite-size chunks, I am breaking down the processes in the 10 knowledge areas into 2 or 3 posts each.

This post covers chapter 10 of the PMBOK® Guide, which covers the Communications Knowledge Area. This knowledge area contains 3 processes, one of which is in the Planning Process Group, the second of which is in the Executing Process Group, and the last of which is in the Monitoring & Controlling Group.

I am splitting the discussion of the Inputs & Outputs into two different posts, the first covering the first two processes, and the second one covering the last of the three processes.   This post will cover Process 10.3 Control Communication.
