Over the years, I've coached many professionals on risk management. While leading and guiding them, they have also taught me invaluable lessons about their needs, aspirations, expectations and the pain points they have in understanding the concepts of risk management. This book is a culmination of those learning with my students, fellow professionals and colleagues. A big thank you to all of you, who enabled me to write this book.
I've seen many professionals who want to crack the Risk Management Professional (RMP®) Exam, but unfortunately there is no book available which exhaustively covers the various aspects of the exam.
For the RMP exam:
A) you need to understand the principles, practices, and concepts in Practice Standard for Project Risk Management from Project Management Institute (PMI®);
B) you need to understand PMI's Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) Guide 5th Edition with high focus on risk management processes, which comes with various inputs, tools and techniques and output (ITTOs);
C) you also need to be fluent with the Examination Content Outline (ECO), which is focused on performance domains. In addition, there is a list of reference books for the exam.
Unfortunately, there is no available material available, which covers them together.
Considering these, I have written this book - 'I WANT TO BE A RMP - The Plain and Simple Way to be A RMP'. This book exhaustively covers the needed areas to crack the RMP exam.
