Have you ever heard of the term “PMI ism” and wondered what it stands for? Rita Mulcahy first coined this term.
Here is the definition of “PMI ism” as defined by Rita:
You may (actually… you probably do) manage projects differently in real life, but for the purposes of your PMP exam, you need to answer questions the PMI way.
Even project managers with decades of experience may not be able to ace the PMP exam without studying because they haven’t learned to do things the “PMI way.”
PMI integrates “PMI ism” into the PMP exam whenever possible, which is why if you are trying to obtain your PMP certification, you need to be aware of what PMI-ism is.
