Some basics on PMBOK, Sixth Edition

I'm just starting to focus on the planned release of the Sixth Edition of the PMBOK guide. This 2016 Project Management.com webcast provides a good introduction. Cyndi Snyder Dionisio, who served as chair of the team that developed the Sixth Edition, provides a summary of why the PMBOK is being updated and the areas of chanage from the Fifth Edition. In summary:

  • 10 Knowledge Areas remain in place from the Fifth Edition framework
  • 49 Processes (Control Procurements out; three new processes)
  • Integration of Agile principles into the PMBOK with the Sixth Edition
  • Greater emphasis upon tailoring for the project
