CAPM09 | Project Human Resource Management – Preparing for the CAPM

Terri Echegoyen and Mark Phillipy continue to study for the CAPM exam. In this session we cover Chapter 9 Project Human Resource Management of the PMBOK. This is the ninth session in the mentoring series “Preparing for the CAPM”. Mark and Terri study together out of the fifth edition of the PMBOK as Terri gets ready to take the CAPM exam.

Preparing for the CAPM Series


I received such great feedback about “Preparing for the CAPM” series, I have decided to increase its value to those who are preparing to take the CAPM exam. In doing so, I have packaged the series into a full blown CAPM Prep program. The new and better series is the center of the site. Select here to learn more about the SensiblePM CAPM Prep Program.

What is covered in this Session?

During the podcast you will learn about the following Human Resource Management Processes:

  • Plan Human Resource Management
  • Acquire Project Team
  • Develop Project Team
  • Manage Project Team

You will also learn some key concepts about Human Resource Management including:

  • What you should include in a Human Resource Management Plan
  • Hints, tools and techniques that a project manager could use when acquiring your project team.
  • The importance of developing your project team along with suggested techniques such as:
    • Interpersonal skill (often referred to as “soft skills”)
    • Training team members
    • Team-Building Activities
    • Developing Ground Rules for the project team.
    • The importance of Colocation of project team members if possible.
    • Motivating your team with Recognition and Rewards.
    • The use of Personal Assessment Tools.

Another key aspect of Project Human Resource Management is:

When working with project teams and individuals on the team, it is important for a project manager to develop good interpersonal skills. If a PM is able to develop their leadership skills, learn to influence others effectively, and be an effective decision maker, they will find that their team will be more motivated and often more likely to produce great project results.
