Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Dear all,

I am sure it is covered somewhere here, but I just have some questions about the Guild of Project Controls?

 

1) Who are the people, who develop the "COMPENDIUM and REFERENCE (CaR) "? 

How were they chosen?

2) How can I get COMPENDIUM and REFERENCE (CaR) if I am not a member? Can I buy a document (like I can buy PMBOK)

3) What was the need to create Guild of Project Controls? Which squestions does it answer, which are not answered by PMI and AACEI?

2) The Guild of Project Controls has uploaded its free Project Controls Compendium and Reference (GPCCaR) and some 600 individual PP members gave up their free time to help develop and generate the GPCCaR which is free to download here.

Zoltan,

thanks for answers.

1) Is there list of these people available somewhere? I assume they are all from http://www.planningplanet.com/ ?

2) So, is this correct, that Compendium  is not available for anybody excepy guild members? How is guild then planning to get a broder acceptance of the methodology (I guess this is the end goal) if it is not even that easy to get hold of this methodology to start with?

3) How do  I become a guild member?

1.) Over a period of 5 years ~600 practitioners from all locations, experience levels and industry sectors collaborated, shaped and proposed what they believed to be best tested and proven practices in relation to each of the 12 knowledge domains.  The content represents what the real world global community use and consider to be PROVEN tools, techniques and practices.  The main reviewers are named at the end of each of the modules and the PP membership is continually proposing amendments and value-adds to it.

2.) The Compendium is free and for use by Guild Members.

3.) PMI and IPMA pays large less attention to planning and scheduling than before.

PMI College of Scheduling was closed, the topic of scheduling is rare at PMI Congresses, most members represent IT industry and are more interested in management of small teams in small projects. That is why Agile, Leadership, soft skills are the areas that attract most attention.

That is why Planners and Schedulers need their own professional association that can help them to develop and improve their skills.

Guild was created for meeting the needs of planners/schedulers that are not satisfied by other professional associations.
