On January, 15th, PMI(r) published 37 pages of the draft standard PMBOK7.
The main change – and challenge – there are PRINCIPLES instead processes now. PMBOK Standard 7th delivers 12 main project management principles.
Knowledge areas will be described later (probably in electronic form only).
The draft is devoted to soft skills area at 90% level. It seems a bit strange to me ’cause hard skills in the PM area are of high value as well.
The draft presents the “umbrella” approach to project management, including predictive (waterfall), agile and hybrid models. As a part of this approach the project leader role is introduced. This role unites project manager, scrum master and other leadership roles.
Another ‘strange’ item for me is the descriptive approach. Standards are usually predictive. But this one contains descriptions, examples, and references to ‘others”.
The PMP 2020 new version seems to be in line with this draft.
on 28 February 2020 – ITIL 4 Specialist new modules: Drive Stakeholder Value (DSV) and ITIL 4 Specialist: High-Velocity IT (HVIT) are to be launched.
