I built PMWay to facilitate the pinning down of knowledge (a store of assets) pertaining to Project and Process Management. The link here about the Frameworks landscape gives a quick overview of PMWay's scope. Over time the web site has been converted to underpin an ICT
The use of the PMBOK as a foundation in PMWay is based on my appreciation of the fact that the PMBOK has status as a Standard grouped along with the ANSI, ISO and BS Standards.
a sure way to implement process
improvements for higher Capability Maturity levels
to increase Productivity
At the same time focus on process improvements will reduce Risk, Rework and Waste!
Capability Maturity Level 2 (CM L2) is all about Project Management processes. CM L2 automatically installs "Good Governance.
The ideas of how to operate at CM L2+ investigated here (summarized in this model) are applicable wherever Quality and Productivity improvements (and a reduction of "the chaos") are the goal.
The Project Management Body of Knowledge version 6 Dashboard (the matrix / asset found on the PMWay home page) is:
heart (as primal source and power center)
for the collated knowledge found in the PMBOK"
Using this Dashboard you can easily access all the PMBOK Processes, and thereby, each of their *ITTO's found within the Guide.
*ITTO's are: Process Inputs, Tools
and Techniques and Outputs - for each of the 49
PMBOK processes on the Dashboard.
Using the functionality of the PMBOK Dashboard in
particular means you can use,
practice and improve your grasp of
the PMBOK version 6 processes (along with the associated ITTO's of
each), as essential knowledge needed to:
And, if you plan to use agile, you can now run these
projects underpinned by the logic of the 'fully agile compliant' PMBOK
It is a fact, in the sixth edition of the PMBOK® Guide, each knowledge area contains a new section entitled Approaches for Agile, Iterative and Adaptive Environments. For a specialized qualification in agile consider the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP). This formally recognizes your knowledge of agile principles and your skill with agile techniques (including XP, Scrum, Lean and KanBan etc.).
If you think that the PMBOK is outdated because it is "waterfall," I challenge you to work through the PMBOK "How To" (from the main menu). If you do this then I believe you will come to understand that your assumptions are incorrect and do not fully grasp all the pertinent issues. To illustrate why I say this take the pin test now and ask yourself honestly:
where is your game really at?
