The world is changing rapidly – driven by global economic, political, demographic and technological trends.

Among these, to name a few, are framing effect, anchoring bias, and correlation versus causation confusion. This session explores examples of these decision fallacies and more, and shows how the PMBOK® Guide – Seventh Edition can be useful in re-thinking the decision-making process.

What’s Up With Standards? – What They’re For, and Your Opportunity To Participate In Developing Them
In this webinar you will learn the purpose and use of standards, and how they form the basis of the profession and practice of project, program, and portfolio management. Standards are used to codify professional knowledge, to normalize practices in the field, and to provide practitioners with a toolbox of processes and approaches that can be applied to the project. Standards are developed by credible, recognized bodies, in particular by ISO and by PMI. This presentation will discuss the process by which standards are developed in an open, consensus-based manner, and you will learn how you can get involved in the development of standards at PMI and at the national and international level.
