PMBOK 7: The Role and Function of the Project Manager has Changed!

Oct 14, 2021 · Portland, United States of America

The Project Management Institute (PMI) has released the Seventh edition of the PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) and one thing is clear: The role and function of the Project Manager has changed!

PMBOK 7 orients projects and Project Managers around principles (and not practices) that are HEAVILY influenced by 20 years of learning from the Agile community. We are seeing a sea change in the world of project management for a new generation of project managers.

Process documents and procedures are de-emphasized in favor of outcomes and benefit management. Feedback, tailoring, and evolution are first-class citizens in the world of project delivery.

What does this latest edition of the PMBOK mean for the world of Agile software development? Do you have a PMP and are wondering if your knowledge and skills will still be relevant? Does PMBOK 7 mean that traditional project management is on its way out?

We want to hear from you! We'll provide a little background on the PMBOK 7 and then engage the group in a Lean Coffee discussion.

Join the October 14th Agile PM Roundtable to begin your exploration of the new Project Management Body of Knowledge!


AgilePDX is providing a forum for Agile Project Managers, Agile Facilitators, and Scrum Masters to gather online once a month and discuss all things project, program, and portfolio related. Please join us for a Lean Coffee style event facilitated by experienced Agile PM's and instructors in the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner prep program.

You'll be dialing in from your desktop with your favorite early morning brew. Please join with your camera on. The Zoom URL will be provided to confirmed attendees. Feel free to post questions to this meetup prior to the event.

We welcome divergent opinions and experience reports. Bring your challenges for groups feedback and support. Plan to join 15 minutes early for coffee clatch chat and networking or stay 15 minutes for the same networking experience.
