    PMBOK®️ Guide 7th Edition - Performance Domains - Part 3/3

    PMBOK®️ Guide 7th Edition - Performance Domains - Part 3/3

    In this third episode of the PMBOK®️ 7th Edition series, Ricardo talks about the Performance Domains, which are the areas PMI believes you should focus on to demonstrate the behavior that the principles advocate.

    Ricardo comments that the 7th edition comes as an umbrella over the 6th edition, looking for attending all types and forms of project delivery.

    Ricardo explains that the eight performance domains have no sequence; they must be developed simultaneously. They address the areas you should focus on, depending on the development approach used.

    Ricardo also explains that the performance domains are divided into chapters, and each chapter has three parts. The first part explains what is expected as an outcome of that area, the second part explains aspects of that area, and the third part describes how you measure the desired outcome for that area. Ricardo comments on each domain and associates it with the principles shown in the second podcast of this series.

    He is also already preparing his new video about the Guide that will be available on his YouTube channel (https://youtube.com/rvvargas). Subscribe and activate notifications to have first-hand access to videos.

    In this second episode of the series about the new PMBOK®️ Guide, Ricardo talks about the first part of the guide, which is the ANSI standard.

    The 12 principles embrace attitudes that support your work in the project management field, such as ethics, responsibility, respect, collaborative environment, stakeholder engagement, value delivery, tailoring, VUCA, internal and external factors to the project, and others.

    Ricardo is also preparing his new video that will be available on his YouTube channel (https://youtube.com/rvvargas).
