For years, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) has been the go-to resource for helping practitioners use best practices to deliver value on the job.
However, rapid enhancements in technology and the need for organizations and practitioners to more quickly adapt to changes in the market have caused our profession to evolve. Practitioners are now tasked with identifying the right delivery approach (predictive, adaptive or hybrid) to get the job done and deliver value. To make sure the PMBOK® Guide – Seventh Edition remains relevant, it must reflect this flexibility and assist the practitioner in managing the project at hand to deliver outputs that enable envisioned outcomes.
The PMBOK® Guide – Seventh Edition, which includes a revised The Standard for Project Management, will support this need for flexibility by adopting a principle-based structure for the standard and performance domains for the guide, in place of Process Groups and Knowledge Areas.
