On September 25, the Datagrav team familiarized with changes made in the project management principles during the presentation of the new revision of the Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK-6).
At the meeting organized by the St. Petersburg PMI office at the IMISP
business school Mr. Valery Funtov, as a member of the PMBOK validation team, presented the updates made to the main PMI standard.
The developers recommend PMBOK as a basis for creating methods for managing projects with processes specifically adapted to the organization context.
The standard is based on cross-matching of 5 process groups and 10 knowledge areas for project management. One of the components is the integration management which includes "knowledge management" along with the "work management" in the new edition. Project knowledge management is designed to ensure a healthy information exchange between employees and to avoid neglecting the experience gained during the project.
The new PMBOK has reformed management tools in order to reflect the growing flow of information within the organization. Increased number of projects results in the necessity for structuring the experience and developing clear principles for re-using the information.
Datagrav thanks the St. Petersburg PMI office for the opportunity to remain informed of the current trends in project management.
Datagrav software for creating integrated cross-project libraries is already being used by Russian companies as an addition to software solutions for project management, which allows to manage knowledge and create databases directly in the course of work.
