Myth or Reality: Were Human Skills Only Highlighted in PMBOK Guide 7th Edition?

In this episode, Ricardo talks about the importance of soft skills in project management, noting their relevance since the inception of the PMBOK guide in 1996. The 7th edition introduces a principles-based approach, diverging from the process-based structure of the 6th edition. This change facilitates a holistic understanding, which is particularly beneficial to those preparing for PMP and CAPM certification. Ricardo highlights that soft skills, such as leadership and adaptability, are deeply rooted in human behavior and essential for the success of the project. He encourages listeners to recognize that the PMBOK guide is not the only repository of project management knowledge, advocating a comprehensive understanding beyond exam requirements.
