PMP Protein: Emotional Quotient – A Risk Factor

By Manjunath R, PMP        

        Taking ownership is the best way to get the things done. No matter what project management methodology is adapted, taking ownership always works. It is all about involving completely and taking accountability of the consequences. One needs to give his or her mind, heart and soul to the activity involved and make sure it is delivered with maximum possible efficiency. It requires lot of attention to detail. In the sense, one needs to understand the consequences of each actions. This is nothing but risk analysis. 
        Risk analysis is carried out in planning stage. Also, during execution unexpected things prop up and will become threat to the project progress. One such risk is emotions flowing through the project TEAM. The emotional balance of team members plays a very important role in the journey of the project. The emotional quotient should be kept in a watch list. If pulse of the team members isn’t understood properly, it will have an impact on project constraints. 

        Most of the times, a good rapport between the team members will be a great motivational factor. The team leader needs to respect the team member’s emotional bonding with the rest of the team. Efforts should be made to have an honest relationship, not only for the sake of the project, but also otherwise. 

        An honest relationship always works, may it be professional or family or social life. Team motivating programs should be designed to enhance the cohesiveness of the team.  If team members happen to lose faith in one another, then the fate of the project will be at stake. Having said that, people should not mix up their personal problems with profession. The distinction should be manifested. 

Conclusion: To summarize, every team member including the team lead, should have a great bonding which will eventually contribute to the self-development as well as strategic alignment to the vision and mission of the organization.

CAPM Live Lessons (PMBOK 6th Edition) – Guaranteed Pass or Your Money Back

It gives me a lot of pleasure in announcing the availability of CAPM® Live Lessons - a complete video course for Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification exam.  

"CAPM Live Lessons – Guaranteed Pass or Your Money Back"

This is one of its kind course in the world. No one ever has given a guaranteed pass, with FULL money back on CAPM exam in two attempts with live (video) lessons. 

I believe the CAPM certification is surely achievable for any sincerely preparing candidate. The questions are relatively direct. It mainly checks your understanding of the PMBOK® Guide, 6th edition. One needs right content, sound understanding of the PMBOK Guide, good quality questions and of course, sincere work to crack the exam.

This course is fully compliant with: 
  • PMBOK Guide 6th edition, and 
  • Examination Content Outline (ECO) for CAPM exam. 

The PMBOK guide 6th edition is bigger and complicated as compared to its earlier edition (though better organized), which makes aspiring CAPMs struggle. Also, many times as I’ve seen professionals appear for the CAPM exam, without any project management experience as the CAPM exam has one such option. Also, there are professionals who have experiences, such as architects, senior specialists, but they also have no formal project management experience. However, the good part is this: for CAPM exam, your one and only reference guide is the PMBOK Guide.

Hence, the entire course is presented and explained in layman’s language. It has been prepared based on my interactions and discussions with many successful CAPMs as well as PMPs.
