While I was studying for my PMP certification I learned many things that over my course of 10 years I was doing differently. Now after being a PMP for a year, I see how you can get value from the knowledge on the PMI framework.
What I still don't see is the gap between real world projects and all the projects in the PMBOK.
The main purpose behind my question is to understand if other PMs see this paradigm in their work. I see a big distance between the theory and the practice.
