The Draft ‘A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) — Fifth Edition’ is currently open for comments. I have made a couple of reccomendations.
1) General comment for ‘lessons learned’. I am interested in understanding why Project Management methodologies and PM knowledge books seem to only use the term ‘lessons learned’? Perhaps the Project Management community needs to shift the focus to more knowledge management, which will open up the language we use in organisations. Lessons learned is only one particular element that can be used to share and use project knowledge. …Your feedback would be most welcome.
2) Section: 18.104.22.168 Organizational Process Assets needs to also include ‘Lessons learned from previous projects’
As I read more over the next few weeks, more feedback will be provided.
