Take Our Tough Quiz About Project Management

By Dennis McCafferty  |  Posted 03-12-2014 Email

So you think you really know your project management lingo? If so, we're going to challenge you here with a pretty difficult Jeopardy!-style quiz about the various, acronym-thick terminology used to describe important documents and tools needed to support a major project. The terms are compiled in a section of a new book, Performance-Based Project Management: Increasing the Probability of Project Success (Amacom). In the book, author Glen B. Alleman provides detailed best practices for how to proceed with a major project from inception to completion. Included are principles which help CIOs and project leaders assess needed business capabilities; plan and schedule work; and determine how to bring it in on time and within budget while minimizing risk. Frankly, it's a pretty daunting feat. So to get an edge, it's best to brush up on commonplace project-management language. A 30-year veteran of project management, Alleman has worked for organizations in the aerospace, Department of Defense and enterprise-information industries. Have fun with our quiz, and —as always—no Googling the answers. For more about the book, click here.
