Inbound Comments and Links — July 2008

Stealing a march from the folks over at RelentlessPR, thanks to all linkers and commenters.  Links and comments are the about the only way for me to know if I’m writing something interesting, useful, or at least provocative.  I appreciate each and every one.

NOTE: I’ve registered at http://technorati.com as a way of viewing all my comments and links in one place.  It also helps direct folks to your blog.  I’ve you haven’t registered there, I recommend it.

INBOUND COMMENTS

Don’t over-interpret the PMBOK Guide…

I just got turned on to Glen Alleman’s Herding Cats blog via Bas’s Shared Blog.  Bas’s link was to one post, but Glen’s post on Mis-Misinterpretations of PMBOK caught my eye (the comments are a good read also).  Glen hits on one of my favorite mis-steps: claiming a methodology isn’t PMBOK-compliant because it isn’t structured according the process groups (hint: the project life cycle discussion is in Chapter 2 of the Third Edition). 

Getting caught up in memorizing and regurgitating such industry standards is a pet peeve.  It is akin to being an expert on Black Letter Law: how interesting or useful is it to be an expert on something basic and elementary?
