The Sixth Edition is not your father’s PMBOK

The Sixth Edition of the PMBOK has 167 more pages than the fifth edition.  If it were a car, we would sell it as bigger and better.  But what’s different between the fifth and sixth editions of the PMBOK?

The 5th edition has 47 processes the 6th edition has 49 processes but one of the fifth edition processes was dropped and three new ones were added.  Also, some processes formerly presented in one chapter have been moved to another chapter in the 6th edition.  These are just statistics – what’s really new & different are the first three chapters and the organization of each of the remaining chapters.

The first three chapters are significantly different:
