ITTOs are Inputs – Tools & Techniques – Outputs.

ITTO’s exist for each of the 47 Processes, based on the PMBOK Guide, Fifth Edition. These processes are spread in the 10 Knowledge Areas and the 5 Process Groups. Understanding the ITTOs is vital to pass the PMP Exam. Atleast 40% of the PMP Exam questions (roughly 80 out of 200), can be answered correctly if you have a solid understanding of the Inputs, Tools & Techniques, and Outputs of the Processes… and their interactions. However many people just resort to memorize them, and guess what… memorizing it for 47 processes not easy, and is not really necessary. Yes, you need to remember them for a few processes to be exact, but not all.  If you attend any PMP Training, or buy a good Exam Prep Book, you can understand how the different processes interact with each other. The output of any process becomes the input to the next process in the logical order. Even if you are able to memorize it, you may make mistakes, or may not be able to answer the PMP exam questions if you do not understand the relationship between the different processes.

Even if you are able to memorize it, you may make mistakes, or may not be able to answer the PMP exam questions if you do not understand the relationship between the different processes. Test your knowledge of ITTOs for PMP Exam?
