Hi Students,

This is the reply one of my other batch student get in relation to 7th Edition and 6th Edition of PMBOK and PMP Certification as below:

"The PMBOK® Guide is an input to preparing for the PMP® exam – and is listed as a reference – but it is not a test-preparation tool"

"The current version of the PMP exam, which launched 2 January 2021, will continue to use the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition as one of several references."

"You can take help from PMBOK seventh edition also as it is released already."

"Both versions is available on PMI website. Candidates can use it as a reference."

"We strongly recommend that candidates refer to the current Exam Content Outline for up-to-date information about preparing for certifications. Information about PMI certifications and future changes can be found at pmi.org/certifications."

"As you have studied from PMBOK 6th edition and LOCHOICE, it is also good."

Hope that helps.

Hi,

Please see below for more details on SoS and SAFe

Scrum of Scrums (SoS), also known as “meta-Scrum,” is a technique used when two or more Scrum teams consisting of three to nine members each need to coordinate their work instead of one large Scrum team.
A representative from each team attends a meeting with the other team representative(s), potentially daily but typically two to three times a week.


The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) focuses on providing a knowledge base of patterns for scaling development work across all levels of the enterprise.
SAFe® is focused on the following principles:
Take an economic view.
Apply systems thinking.
Assume variability; preserve options.
Build incrementally with fast, integrated learning cycles.
Base milestones on objective evaluation of working systems.
Visualize and limit work in progress, reduce batch sizes, and manage queue lengths.
Apply cadence; synchronize with cross-domain planning.
Unlock the intrinsic motivation of knowledge workers

Funding Limit reconciliation
Organizations have only so much cash to allocate to projects-and no, you can’t have all the monies right now. FLR is an organizations' approach to managing cash flows against the project deliverable based on a schedule, milestone accomplishments or data constraints. This helps and organization plan when monies will be devoted to a project rather than using all of the funds available at the start of the project. In other words, the monies for a project budget will become available based on dates/or deliverable. If the project does not hit the predetermined dates and products that were set as milestones, the additional funding becomes questionable.

Hi,

If you have taken the PMI Membership and looking for Agile Practice Guide search with the help of note below from one of the Member:

"I downloaded the PMBOK, but it (or at least the version I downloaded) did not have the Agile Practice Guide at the back. I went to the site marketplace.pmi.org and I did a search for the Agile Practice Guide. I found it in the list of items returned. I clicked on the link and was able to download the PDF version for free as I am a PMI Member. It is password protected, but I have it."

Can you give example of Blackout in any other industry apart from software......majorly wanted to know if it is relevant in EPC projects...
Hi Abhimanyu,
Blackout period means time between transformation from old system to new one.
For exaple, in Chemical industry, new pipe line structure is built to tansfer raw chemical to reactor area.
Now to use this new pipe line, we need to cut the supply from old/existing pipeline. So till the time supply is connected through new pipe line, production will stoped as there will be no chemical in reactors. So this time is called as Blackout time.
Hope this example is relevent to your querry.

Thanks Suhas....Got it...seems it basically refers to something as SHUTDOWN planned for the transition phase as prevalent in Oil & Gas industries.....
