PPP 125 | Why Project Managers Who Learn Faster Beat Those Who Know More, with guest Liz Wiseman

Total Duration 44:58

Download episode 125

Expert Judgment

In the Project Management Body of Knowledge--the PMBOK® Guide--there's a recurring tool and technique entitled Expert Judgment. How can you develop a more effective project charter? Come up with more accurate cost and time estimates? Identify risks? Project Management Institute (PMI) says we should use expert judgment.

Their point is that you can develop better plans and estimates if you tap into the wisdom of those with established expertise. Makes sense, right?

Put Your Rookie On

My guest today is Liz Wiseman, author of Rookie Smarts: Why Learning Beats Knowing in the New Game of Work. Liz suggests there are times when having a rookie mindset trumps expert judgment.
