Is the 2013 Version of PMBOK V5 a Real Improvement?

Do you think the PMBOK V5 new version launched 01/2013 is a major improvement:
- adding "Stakeholders Management" as a new knowledge area, and
- adding a Plan process where it was missing.

PMBoK V5 is a Real Improvement?

Jean-Michel, I' m sure, that Stakeholder management is a very useful tool. Another question how it is presented in PMBOK.

Is PMBoK V5 a Real Improvement?

@Oxana Nitsulenko: Hi Oxana, "Stakeholders Management" knowledge domain is presented the same way like others knowledge domains in the PMBOK Guide V5. It mean than after a global view, there is a description of the 4 process included:
- Identify Stakeholders
- Plan Stakeholder Management
- Manage Stakeholder Engagement
- Control Stakeholder Engagement

PMBOK V5 is a Real Improvement

Hi Jean-Michel, comparing with the last version (V4), this version is getting better, especially tools and techniques in Integration knowledge area in the last version are improved.
The most used technique in this knowledge area used to be 'Expert Judgment' but in version V5 the Facilitation technique (meeting etc.) is recognized.
