Public Exposure Review of the New Software Extension to the PMBOK® Guide and OPM3® Third Edition


PMI Standards is announcing a public exposure review of two standards, the new Software Extension to the PMBOK® Guide, and OPM3® Third Edition.

The Software Extension to the PMBOK® Guide provides guidance to software developers and managers on the application of project management approaches to their development projects. The extension, which has been developed as a joint project between IEEE Computer Society and PMI Standards, describes both the predictive approaches found in the PMBOK® Guide as well as iterative, incremental approaches such as Agile.

Organizational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3®) -- Third Edition is a revision of the previous Second Edition, and provides a model for organizations to use to measure and enhance their maturity with respect to the use of project management within the organization.

Anyone interested in reviewing and commenting on these two draft standards is welcome to participate in the review. Review and comment on these draft standards between 10 December 2012 and 10 January 2013.
