PMI has released exposure drafts of two proposed Standards documents for public comment. They are the new “Software Extension to the PMBOK Guide Fifth Edition” and the revised “Organizational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3) 3rd Edition.” If you are a current member of PMI, you can view and print (but not download) both documents, and provide your comments. Both will be available until January 10th. No work was provided on an expected publication date, but based on previous updates to PMI Standards, I expect them to be published next summer.
And if you haven’t checked it out yet, PMI now has a Change Management Community of Practice.
The team working on the fifth edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) released the exposure draft for comments yesterday. The document is available here. The draft will be open for comments through March 20, 2012. You’ll need to log in to the PMI site and agree to their terms and conditions and assignment of copyright for any comments you make. The Glossary and Appendix X1, which provides a detailed list of the changes, are downloadable as PDF documents, but the draft itself is not downloadable.
The exposure draft for the Standard for Portfolio Management, Third Edition, is available for comment through March 6 at the same link. Also available through March 6 is the draft for the Standard for Program Management, Third Edition.
The exposure draft for the third edition of the Standard for Portfolio Management is now available for comment on the PMI website, through January 14, 2012. Click here to access the document; note that you need a current PMI login.
UPDATES: The exposure draft for the third edition of the Standard for Program Management will be available for comment from February 6 through March 6, 2012. The exposure draft for the fifth edition of the PMBOK will be available for comment from February 17 through March 20, 2012.
