New standars will be pubished in early january 2013, and will cover fifth edition of PMBOK (Project Managements Body of Knowledge), and third edition of “The Standard for Progran Management” and “The Standard for Portfolio Management”.

- The Standard for Portfolio Management—Third Edition
I want to highlight of new PMBOK edition 3 important aspects:
- A 10th Knwoledge Area: Project Stakeholder Management. I was sure this area would be added in the last revison of PMBOK, Fourth Edition. Finally, it is included
- Project data information and information flow have been redefined and aligned with the DIKW (Data, Information, Knowledge and Wisdom) model used in the field of Knowledge Management
- Four new planning processes added to reinforce the concept of the subsidiary plans integrated through the overall project management plan:
- Plan Scope Management
- Plan Schedule Management
- Plan Cost Management
- Plan Stakeholder Management
In following post I will talk about the new aspects of the remaining two foundation standards.
