Topic Description:  Synchronizing PMBOK with Stage-Gate Processes

The PMBOK teaches us that projects have five steps:  Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Controlling, and Closing.  However, many companies use stage-gate processes to manage their projects, such as:  Appraise, Concept Selection, Concept Definition, and Execution.

At the heart of the stage gate process is the decision point at the end of each stage, each one with the potential for the project to be killed before moving to the next phase.  This aspect is not as evident in the PMBOK process, so how do we integrate the PMBOK learnings into the stage gate process?

This session will help bridge this gap for newer project practitioners who may not be able to see the relationship between the process described in the PMBOK and the stage-gate process they have to work with in their careers.
