Top PMP and CAPM Exam Prep Tools
When are OPAs and EEFs an Input and when not ....
I'm studying for CAPM. One thing I'm noticing - many of my errors on prep exams relate to knowing when Organisational Process Assets or Environmental Enterprise Assets are an Input to process activities. For example, why does PMBOK think there is no need for OPA's during Collect Requirements but does during Define Activities. Surely the old reliable "lessons learned" applies to both. Or why are EEFs such as "a scheduling tool" an Input to Develop Schedule and nothing comparable is needed to Determine Budget. I'd argue that there are usually good grounds for including both. Either way, for all my efforts I can't find a rhyme or reason for inclusion or exclusion and end up guessing. And before anyone says it: I don't fancy learning them off by heart.
Is there a general rule of thumb or guidance anyone can refer me to ? Sean.
