7-Hr Intro to PMBOK Guide 7th Edition
About course

This 1-day live, instructor-led course will introduce the principles and philosophy of project management as presented by the Project Management Institute (PMI)® in A Guide to The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) Seventh Edition. PMI has significantly changed its approach to this important text, moving away from providing guidance on the techniques and best practices of project management to focus on high-level thinking. This new perspective will free project managers and their organizations to determine their own methods of managing projects based on several different factors. It should be noted that PMI still considers its PMBOK® Guide Sixth Edition to be valid, as it serves a different purpose.

This course will cover a thorough review of the PMBOK® Guide Seventh Edition, specifically Project Performance Domains, Tailoring, and the use of models, methods, and artifacts.  We will also delve into the components of PMI’s new text, The Standard for Project Management, including Value Delivery and Project Management Principles.

Who should attend

This course should be attended by anyone with an interest in understanding the changes in PMI’s PMBOK® Guide Seventh Edition. It will benefit certified project managers who want to stay current with these changes, as well as those new to project management, and project managers just beginning their relationship with PMI.
