Project initiation is the first project management process to execute in the project lifecycle, and it will be the focus of approximately 8.5% of the exam questions. Although the exam questions regarding the Initiating process tend to be straightforward and involve only 1 of the 39 PMBOK processes (Initiation), many project managers have minimal real-life experience with these activities. And for the project managers with experience in project initiation, the terms and processes they use may not be consistent with PMI's expectations.
To streamline your exam preparations, we will focus on the "gotta-know" concepts and terms that are important to PMI, and the "common" gaps you may need to close to be ready for the exam questions related to project initiation.
