I'm in the middle of studying for the PMP exam. I plan on memorizing each of the processes within each of the process groups and knowledge areas. However, is it necessary to memorize each of the ITTO's for every process? Is this value added?

Hi,

If you really want to familiarize with the ITTO you need to understand rather than memorizing. Found a website which may help you. Enjoy...

Hi,

Just passed my PMP today on my 1st attempt. Will document my lesson learned later. Just thought to reply you first... From today's experience, PMP Exam is not so straight forward. Lets put it this way, even if you are holding the PMBOK guide, it's ain't easy if you dunno how to apply it under real scenario.

I didn't have the time to reply you a long response the other day as was preparing for the exam myself. I was also quite worried about the ITTO but I did not memorized because I was able to remember since my company is following most of the standard. Below are some of my personal notes for ITTO

1) Group common inputs
- All processes in the Project Integration Management and
Project Communication has Organization Process Asset(OPA) as an Input.
- Enterprise Environmental Factor(EEF) are not used in Project Scope
Management, Monitoring and Control Processes and Closing Processes
- All Planning Processes uses OPA as an Input except Collect Requirement
and Plan Risk Responses
- All processes in the Initiating Process group have OPA and EEF as
an Input
- PMBOK never list Project Management Plan as an Input to processes
under the Initiating and Planning Process Group but it is an Input
to all processes in the Executing, Monitoring & Controlling and
Closing process group

2) Group common outputs
- All the last processes in each knowledge area has OPA Updates
has an output.
- All processes in the Monitoring and Controlling processes has
output related to Change Request

Attached is the ITTO of all the knowledge area which I have compiled for my PMP preparation earlier.

Hope this can help you.

Good Luck...
