Overview of the PMBOK® Guide Seventh Edition – Lesson 1

Event Description:

The next generation of the PMBOK® Guide presents a major breaking point with legacy options. Where the previous versions were primarily process-prescriptive, this edition provides a wealth of considerations gathered from seasoned professionals from across the globe.  What adaptations and changes had PMI made to the PMBOK® Guide and how are they relevant to how we currently practice project management?

Lesson 1: Evolution of the Guide

In this first session we will cover how the seventh edition captures both legacy and emergent practices within the realm of project management. We will explore the changes between previous versions of the PMBOK® Guide and the current, emphasizing the five primary contextual concepts defining a system for value delivery.
