Product information "Design of a Project Management Methodology (PMBOK®7)"

General remark to PMI® PMBOK7®:
PMI® says that they are going to publish the new PMI® PMBOK® Guide in its Seventh Edition (A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge - PMBOK7) in "early 2021". They will include new governing principles, performance domains, and others, which also changes the way an organization is going to create a project methodology once it is based upon PMBOK® standard. Especially, the content structure has been revised in essential points, so that the shift from PMBOK6 to PMBOK7 is much more complex than the shift from PMBOK5 to PMBOK6 in the past. OYSTEC is carefully evaluating the content of PMBOK7 and recommends aligning future project management methods with this latest standard. As long as version 7 is not yet final, we can start only with what is already set. These are for example the Project Performance Domains and the Project Management Principles, which will both have a strong impact on your future project management methodology framework. Contact us if you are interested in aligning your new project management methodology with PMI PMBOK7.

Target Organization:
Any organization that wants to create its own Project Management Methodology and wants to get external experts to help (from large large enterprises to small medium-sized companies as well as cross-industry, e.g. manufacturing, IT, etc.)

As a "Method as a Service" we offer you the design and implementation of your new Project Methodology for use within your projects with PMI® PMBOK® Guide and other assets (if desired). PMI PMBOK® Guide describes performance domains as well as principles which are recommended to become a part in your future methodology. Depending on your requirements, various structures and contents of these standards should be adapted and integrated. In addition, there is the recommendation to incorporate your own assets from your organization at any level. There are also other building blocks that can expand the scope of a project methodology, e.g. the design and installation of your own learning and certification environment. OYSTEC can create a corresponding project management methodology for your company and implement it in your organization. To ensure the best quality within your Project Managament Methodology, the utilization of the PMI® assets is recommended as follows:
