Opportunity to Participate in PMI Standards Development

Added to Process

On behalf of Project Management Institute, I would like to invite members of Agile Alliance to participate in the public review of the exposure draft of The Standard for Project Management, which is published as part of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). The PMBOK® Guide is undergoing revision for its seventh edition.


The exposure draft will be available for public review and comment online from 8 a.m. EST, 15 January 2020 to 5 p.m. EST, 14 February 2020. Anyone interested in project management is welcome to participate. For more details and the link to the Exposure Draft tool, please visit our Exposure Draft information page.

This is an opportunity to provide your unique insights as your input is critical to ensuring that The Standard for Project Management continues to be a comprehensive and valued resource for project delivery practitioners worldwide.

The PMBOK® Guide — Seventh Edition will be published digitally during Q4, 2020 in English and 11 additional languages, and in print during Q1, 2021.
