At MyPM, we don’t employ the same project management methodology for every project. In fact, for some projects we might pull from two or more methodologies.
Fortunately, the project management body of knowledge is mature enough that several good methodologies exist. We view each one as providing tools available for our use. Whether or not a tool is used and whether or not certain rigor is applied is entirely dependent upon the nature of the project at hand. We rely on our education and experiences to make these determinations.
Although we don’t rely on the same project management methodology for every project, for producing measurable, repeatable results, regardless of the project type, we do rely upon the same processes. We’re referring to the processes set forth in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), Fifth Edition. There you will find the processes that are relied upon by project management professionals around the world.
An American National Standard
PMBOK® Guide is published by the Project Management Institute, Inc. (PMI®) which is the world’s leading membership association for the project management profession. This guide identifies a body of knowledge that is generally recognized as a best practice standard by project management professionals. PMBOK® Guide is also recognized by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as an American National Standard (ANSI/PMI 99-001-2013). MyPM’s project management practices are aligned with this industry standard and we utilize it as our foundational reference.
The processes set forth in PMBOK® Guide are not subject matter dependent. They apply, in varying amounts, regardless of whether we manage design, sustainability, outsourcing or software development projects. Because we utilize PMBOK® Guide as our foundational reference, you’ll find many of our services built around the PMBOK® process groups.
What We Do
