Please note this webinar is non-PDU bearing!
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.
