Chapter Changes in the Third Edition

 

We upgraded the description of the Project Manager. We added a significant section on the skills required: Technical, Behavioral, and Business and Strategic. This originated from work by Vijay Kanabar on the PMI Curriculum Project. As a result, we added a chapter devoted to the Project Manager.

Chapter 7: The Project Manager

 

The PMBOK 6th Edition emphasizes Stakeholder Engagement. Therefore, we added a new Chapter on stakeholders.

Chapter 7: Stakeholders
