pmp itto cheat sheet: excel spreadsheet based on PMBOK Guode 6th edition

You will information about an innovative PMP ITTO cheat sheet in this post. It is prepared as an excel spreadsheet and is based on the Process Groups Practice Guide (PMI has moved the 49 processes and their related information from PMBOK Guide 6th ed. to Process Groups Practice Guide). It contains ITTO (Inputs, Tools & Techniques, and Outputs) for 5 Process Groups (PG) and 49 processes.

An ITTO cheat sheet is extremely useful for the PMI (Project Management Institute) certification exams (PMP and CAPM). In fact, such a sheet is useful for any kind of test.

The ITTO spreadsheet is quite different and much more beneficial from any other ITTO learning tool that you might have seen. It contains dynamic content that is immensely useful for the credential exam study.

I have written this post to explain the utility and features of the Excel sheet. If you think that the spreadsheet will be useful for your exam prep, you can buy it by clicking on the button above.

You can also download a free pdf version of PMP process charts to study for the certification exam. The pdf file is 16 pages long and has the same content as the Excel sheet but it lacks dynamic features of the Excel sheet.

PMP ITTO Cheat Sheet

As per Wikipedia, a cheat sheet (also cheatsheet) or crib sheet is a concise set of notes used for quick reference.

A cheat sheet has abridged information on a particular subject or topic. It can enhance and accelerate your learning. You can prepare one for the mathematical formulas & abbreviations, important PMBOK Guide terms, tips & tricks, ITTO, and many other things.

A regular ITTO sheet (like my free pdf process chart) has static and non-searchable data. It has process charts and ITTO. It is definitely useful for the exam prep but my excel sheet is more useful.

The excel sheet that has dynamic content. It shows only relevant content based on your search. You can look at the figure below to understand how it works.

The PRocess Groups Practice Guide has hundreds of processes related terms and ITTO. You can use the excel sheet to select any of these terms from the drop-down. The sheet will dynamically show the content related to your chosen term.

A regular pdf process chart is handy and very useful. You can use it only for memorizing and not for cross referencing.

However, when you are studying the PMBOK Guide or any other PMP reference book, you need to go back and forth between chapters for cross reference. You need to constantly look at terms in other process groups and understand the relationships between these terms.

If you are using a regular pdf process chart, the cross referencing across process groups is slow and time consuming.

My spreadsheet, on the other hand, has dynamic and searchable content. It scores many times over the pdf process chart. You can use it as a regular chart for memorization and cross-referencing. But you can go beyond that.

By using my spreadsheet, the cross-referencing becomes quick and easy. You can quickly look at the relevant terms across process groups in a single view. It not only accelerates your learning process but also enhances your retention. You can traverse across multiple processes in a matter of few seconds.

In addition, you can find out which output of one process is being used as input in another process(es). You can form relationships between processes across the process groups.

Let’s take a look at another figure below to understand how searching works.
