Thanks for bringing this video to our attention. It is indeed a very interesting one but I will refrain from weighing in or voicing my opinion for many reasons.

Dear Luis,

Since you brought this to my attention, I found the video in YouTube, and take a pick and I honestly didn't like what I saw. Do you believe that the changes in PMBOK7 guide are so drastic as they are annouced in that video?

Dear Alexandre

Thank you for participating in this reflection

I think the changes are profound
Just posted another topic encouraging people to voice their opinion where it matters, on PMI exposure draft platform https://www.pmi.org/pmbok-guide-standards/...exposure-draft.

The change is indeed dramatic, moving to some universally true principles which will wipe out any difference between PMI or non-PMI practitioners - and if everyone is "compliant" then what's the difference between PMI members (and PMP certified) and everyone else?

Personally I think that guiding principles are good and necessary, but as an introduction to the standard not replacing it!

Once again, this change is claimed to be "consensus-based" - so go to the exposure draft, read it for yourselves, and say what you have to say so whomever is promoting this change can see what real PMs think.

Dear George
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion

Do you really believe that we will be able to change the approach?
From Principles to Processes?

I agree. It is in the right place that we can (and should) give our opinion
This community, ProjectManagement.com is not that location?

Hello George, the exposure draft is not available anymore. I could not read it. Where can I find a copy?
Thanks you
Dear Luis,
Interesting question. What specifically about the video gives you concern?

Dear Keith
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion

I always like to hear all opinions on the same topic, even if they are contradictory

So when I saw the video, it brought it up for debate here in the community

I watched it. Pretty neutral. Interesting perspectives on the PMI's direction. He is certainly passionate about his craft.

Dear Andrew
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion

We agree when you write: "He is certainly passionate about his craft."

It also makes comments in a sustained way, from his perspective
I don't understand why everyone is "putting head in the sand". Are we bound by silence and secrecy once we join PMI?

Phil has a valid point on the research - secretive work behind the scenes is not good research because the best research is peer reviewed. Somehow it is preached in PMI Journal of Management, why it is not professed by the writers of the webpage that Phil comments on.

I want to revisit this post after August 1st and see how many Phil's predictions will come true.

We are certainly not bound by silence - there are 3 more days of exposure for the draft at https://www.pmi.org/pmbok-guide-standards/...exposure-draft, I would encourage everyone to express your comments there, where they could make a difference (one would hope!)

Dear Andrew
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion

When I created this post, that was exactly my intention: to promote a debate about the pros and cons of the Project Management approach that will be used in the PMBOK Guide 7th Edition
