A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge

A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) is a book which presents a set of standard terminology and guidelines for project management. A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) was first published by the Project Management Institute (PMI) as a white paper in 1987 in an attempt to document and standardize generally accepted project management information and practices.

The Guide recognizes 42 processes that fall into five basic process groups and nine knowledge areas that are typical of almost all projects.

The five process groups are:

  •     Initiating
  •     Planning
  •     Executing
  •     Monitoring and Controlling
  •     Closing

The nine knowledge areas are:

  1.     Project Integration Management
  2.     Project Scope Management
  3.     Project Time Management
  4.     Project Cost Management
  5.     Project Quality Management
  6.     Project Human Resource Management
  7.     Project Communications Management
  8.     Project Risk Management
  9.     Project Procurement Management

Each of the nine knowledge areas contains the processes that need to be accomplished within its discipline in order to achieve an effective project management program.
