Policies, procedures, processes and rules (redux)
Blog: Column 2 - Sandy Kemsley
For some reason, the most popular post of all time on this blog is from 2007, on policies, procedures, process and rules: definitions, differences, and how processes and decisions intersect both in modeling/documentation and implementation. If I look at the past year, quarter, month or week, it’s still the most viewed post in those time periods, even though it’s over 12 years old. Interesting to see what is still relevant after all this time, since blog posts typically have a half-life of only a couple of days.
A few days ago, someone named Jason Gorman (who did not note their affiliation) added a lengthy comment to the post, describing how he is reviewing the 6th edition of the PMBOK Guide, and has documented their definitions of policy, process, procedure and rule based on various sources including my original blog post. Glad I could be of service!
