Removing 7 Quality Tools from PMBOK V.6
Network:92609



Does anyone know what is the rationale behind removing the 7 Quality Tools from Plan Quality Process in the latest PMBOK V.06 ?

Those are very important tools so I wonder why they were removed.

I do not think it has been removed from PMP exam. The pmbok is only a guide and it should not include everything.
May be I am wrong.

I haven't seen that version yet. Not sure why they will be removed, they are important. Or maybe added new tools?

In PMBOK 6th Edition they haven't been completely removed the tools are now
under 'data representation' section for tools and techniques of Plan Quality Management, Manage Quality and Control Quality. Page 277, 288, 298.
I didn't see pareto diagram and checksheets anywhere though.

Pareto has to be on there the 80/20 is a principal of nearly every failure meeting I have ever been involved in.

Rami -

that's a question I've asked myself for a number of the material deletions between the two editions. Unfortunately, other than sending a note to PMI's generic customer care e-mail address I'm not sure who else to contact given the large number of volunteers who contributed to the guide...

After going through 5 PMBOK revisions, it seems to me like Quality suffers the most each time. (I should probably say improves the most...) I think there must be a great deal of variation in how quality is managed in various industries, various countries, etc and it must be hard for the volunteers to agree on what to include and what to omit. Also remember that the test itself is not just based on the PMBOK, so people still need to know about checksheets and Pareto for sure. But I also wonder why they made this change...

I guess as they expand subject area they are relegating the specifics to references.

May be one should check the postings/blogs relating to differences between PMBOK 5 & PMBOK 6. Removal of Quality tools may be listed with reasoning
