PMBOK® Guide 7 – A Fundamentally Different Perspective to Project Management

I’m one of the 12 core development team members responsible for the upcoming version of the PMBOK® Guide. In this session, I will explain the changes we’ve made to the standard and the rationale behind them, and I’ll answer your questions.

All previous editions of the PMBOK Guide were building on top of each other by improving its existing process-based approach. In the seventh edition, we started from scratch, and created something new that is principle-based, which makes it more inclusive, and more expandable. I’m looking forward to telling you more about it in the session!

About the Speaker

Nader K. Rad
I started working with projects about 24 years ago: first, as a project planner in construction projects, and then I moved to large process-plant projects. In parallel, I was also involved in IT projects and startups.
