Your input needed by July 26

The PMI PMBOK Guide® is the premiere guide for Project Managers and the PMI volunteers and staff work diligently to ensure that it is filled with best practices.  A draft of The Sixth Edition has been written and is now open for final comments.  The editorial team has already reviewed over four thousand suggestions for improvements.  The new Guide includes greatly expanded coverage of Agile methodologies and each knowledge area will have new sections on Key Concepts, Trends and Emerging Practices, and Tailoring Considerations.

There is a more detailed overview of the PMBOK Guide – Sixth Edition Exposure Draft.  You encouraged to make comments on the Front End and Knowledge Area Sections after logging in to  The more input we have from you, the real practitioners, the better the PMBOK Guide will be.


“Paint-A-Thon” Needs You!

The PMI-MN chapter is once again participating in the Metro Paint-A-Thon to improve a home and neighborhood in Northeast Minneapolis. We will be working with the Community United Methodist Church of Columbia Heights again this year to paint a garage, house trim, and stain a deck and wheel chair ramp for the homeowner.

Preparation day is Saturday, July 30 and Paint Day is Saturday, August 6 (weather permitting). The fun begins at 8:30 each day and we should be done by early afternoon – breakfast and lunch will be provided.

This event is open to everyone, not just PMI members. You can volunteer for both days or one of the days – Heck! We aren’t proud, we welcome everyone to volunteer – PMI members, family, and friends of PMI.
