It’s important that you have a very good understanding of the various aspects, facets and features of Inputs, Tools and Techniques and Outputs (ITTOs) to ensure PMP® exam success.

For those not familiar with ITTOs, here’s an explanation for better understanding.  ITTO’s are the logical extension of the classification/standardization system used in the PMBOK® Guide, 6th edition. The PMBOK® Guide is divided into 10 Project Management Knowledge Areas, each of which is developed and supported by the 5 Project Management Process Groups, where applicable – this results in a total of 49 processes.

ITTOs are the foundation and infrastructure of the 49 Project Management processes discussed in the PMBOK® Guide. Each of the 49 Project Management processes have ITTOs. The number associated with each is proportional to the prerequisites (Inputs) necessary to start the process, the type(s) and level of effort necessary to do the process (Tools and Techniques), and the one or more things you produce from the process (Outputs).

For example, to build a building you need Inputs (plans, specifications, permits, financing, building materials, etc.), then you proceed to construction by using Tools and Techniques (skilled labor and trades, concrete, framing, electrical, plumbing); when done, you have a completed building as an Output.  To take this example further, there is an order to constructing a building and relationships between construction actions and activities. For example, you can’t frame the building until the foundation is constructed and you can’t wire or plumb the building until it is framed.  ITTOs, and the Project Management Processes they support, have similar logical sequencing constraints and relationships.

ITTOs are essentially a standardized means of systematically using the same method of developing and executing processes and projects. When you think about it, breaking down processes into ITTO reduces each to its most fundamental and basic components, and does so in a standardized manner that is equally applicable for all processes and projects. Understanding this allows you to build your project on a solid foundation from the ground up – like constructing a building. When project management practitioners refer to “PMP ITTOs” they mean the global set of ITTOs associated with all 49 Project Management processes detailed in the PMBOK® Guide, not ITTOs related to one specific process.

So, studying and understanding the relationships of Knowledge Areas, Process Groups and processes are critical to your understanding of where ITTOs are used and your ability to pass the PMP®exam.
