How many of you have explored PMI Standards Plus?
I'd seen the demo a few weeks back, but in the interim, a LOT of new content has been added.

I've had the opportunity to contribute a couple of content pieces for the platform - hopefully they will be published soon!

If you haven't visited it yet, you owe it to yourself to take a look at this new online knowledge base which will be containing a lot of the process/tools details which used to be in the PMBOK Guide.

Thank you for sharing. I did not know about its existence. I have entered and it looks great.
Dear Kiron
I was unaware of the extent of these process / tools details which used to be in the PMBOK Guide

Thanks for sharing
Exploring this new resource...Seems very interesting at first sight!
Kiron

I have not spent much time there yet.

Like the PMBOK 7, I feel PMI is moving to IT/Agile forgetting other project management concepts such as LEAN or other industries.
It may create a schism/split Industries that don't feel include may push forward their way if PMI doesn't include them!

Articles are identified "Agile" when they should also have "Waterfall" and "Hybrid"

Example search for "Construction" and "Risk" you get two articles

Top Risks in an Agile Project: Insights from Three Industry Experts
and
Cost-Benefits Analysis Case Study

Add to your search "Waterfall" you get 0 ZERO article

I can understand the first no showing, but the second should be there but it is not tag "Waterfall" or "Agile" or "Hybrid" so it will not show if you check one of the three.

It still needs to be worked on!

this is a great set of observations! I'd suggest submitting the concerns to PMI directly via the "Don't see the results you are looking for?" feedback field at the very bottom of the search page. If you want to get to that field quickly, just search for Waterfall + Aerospace :-)

The filter is particularly useful! How do you get to the site, Kiron? (I noticed it doesn't have the nine dots in the upper left corner.)

As it is still an MVP, I believe PMI isn't pushing it heavily through its usual online channels. Once it is, I'd expect it to be easily accessible through the nine dots menu.

Till then, I have it bookmarked and just visit in once in a while to see what's been added.

Kiron,

I understand it is still work in progress. Do you know who we should contact to suggest changes?
I push a bit further the search for a single criteria Approach

Agile 18 articles
Hybrid 0 article
Waterfall 0 article

It is just that articles are not tagged with approach except some with Agile.

Vincent, thank you for raising that. Last year I moved from IT to a product development & strategic projects, then I realized how far PMI was to integrate other industries.
I have also been working with the beta team on this. Supplied some content as well, though, not yet published. Maybe it won’t even be published, but the hope is there :)

My take on some comments above is that the tagging still is being finalized. To simplify and focus beta testing tags were extended across to ensure enough content available irrespective for area; also allowed for testing of filter results.

Anyway, Definitely agree. It is a great initiative and great to see the expanded footprint.
