Terminology sections or documents are critical resources for implementing a standard. However, users tend to take them for granted as just being part of the standard. But did you know: • In what situation a word or phrase is selected to be defined as a term in the terminology document or section? • What science is behind the definition of a term? • How to find definitions of a term in various standards for free? • How to relate the meaning of a term to the meaning in common dictionaries? • The word or phrase will be not be adopted as a term if the intended meaning of the word or phrase is found in a dictionary? • If not, you are not alone. New terms are not adopted easily in standards. It's a profound process - dull to some - yet largely unknown to people.

Techniques & Steps to Help Business’s Frame Vision, Cascade Objectives, Respond to Escalations & Realise Benefit Flows

PREMIUM webinar

Increasingly descriptions of the PM role and PMO responsibilities emphasis projects are investments and participants must support all things benefits. For example the 6th Edition of the PMBoK-Guide®’s description of the project manager discusses “…[and] may also be involved in follow-on activities related to realizing business benefits (pg51)” Whether or not the PM is ’involved,’ the PMBoK-Guide does not provide any Tools or Techniques by which: we can facilitate business leaders to crystallise “what we will see and experience when benefits are flowing in a desired future.” If, as diligent experts we are to support benefits then the responsibilities of the PM must include interacting with the business at each the end of the project life cycle. To do this, we need competencies – knowledge & behaviours we practice to develop skills.
