Description of Presentation: 

• The Foundation for the PMBoK goes back to 1981, with the project management standard evolving to a release as the PMBoK 1st Edition in 1996, which defined 37 processes.

• Subsequent versions of the PMBoK, through the 6th Edition have primarily addressed changes to the processes, usually resulting in additional processes, to reach 39 in the 6th Edition. The page count has steadily grown with each edition.

• We have approached Project Management, guided by the PMBoK, through the lens of the ten knowledge areas and five process groups; even to the point of memorizing as many of the the Input, Tools, Techniques, and Outputs (the “ITTOs”) in order to get through the exam.

• PMBoK 7 is changing this worldview from a process centric approach to a focus on Project Management Principles and Project Performance Domains. A secondary impact is a significant reduction in the page count. However, don’t put your PMBoK 6 in the yard sale, for it is not going away.

• Many questions remain unanswered as PMI is rolling out this version. In this session, we will explore what the changes may mean, why PMI is taking this direction, stimulate discussion, and hopefully reduce some anxiety.
