PM Minimalist Quiz & Exercise Now Available!

PM-Minimalist-Quiz-Promo-Graphics

Are you using The Project Management Minimalist to teach a PM class? Or do you simply want a “self-check” quiz and exercise to test yourself after reading The Project Management Minimalist?  

Then you need the PM Minimalist Quiz & Exercise! This document is a generic version of the quiz/exercise I use to start my custom, on-site PM classes. It is carefully designed (by me… a former instructional designer!) to measure students’ comprehension of the most important PM Minimalist terms and concepts, while challenging them to come up with specific, immediately useful ways to improve their specific PM processes. The PDF includes:

  • A two-part Quiz with 39 matching/fill-in-the-blank items
  • A four-part analytical Exercise which guides students through a detailed analysis of their specific PM practices and how they might improve them by applying what they learned in the PM Minimalist book.
  • An Answer Key, providing feedback on the Quiz (Note: This Answer Key is self-contained on the last page of the PDF document, so if you’re teaching a class you can print this page separately and share it after they complete the Quiz.)
