A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) - Third Edition.

A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) Third Edition is a

collection of processes and knowledge areas generally accepted as best practice within the
project management discipline.

A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) is an internationally

recognised standard (IEEE Std 1490-2003) that provides the fundamentals of project
management that are applicable to a wide range of projects, including construction, software,
engineering, automotive, etc.

A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) recognizes 5 basic

process groups and 9 knowledge areas typical of almost all projects. The basic concepts are
applicable to projects, programs and operations. The five basic process groups are:

1. Initiating,

2. Planning,

3. Executing,

4. Controlling and Monitoring, and

5. Closing.

Processes overlap and interact throughout a project or phase. Processes are described in terms
of: Inputs (documents, plans, designs, etc.) Tools and Techniques (mechanisms applied to
inputs) Outputs (documents, products, etc.)

Section III of the A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) lists
the Nine Knowledge Areas and the sub areas, starting from Chapter 4 though 12. They are as

Although much of the Project Management Institute's (PMI) Guide to the Project

Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) is unique to project management, some areas

overlap with other management disciplines. General management also includes planning,
organizing, staffing, executing, and controlling the operations of an organization. Financial
forecasting, organizational behavior, and planning techniques also are integral to project

Of course, the most important skill for successful project management is communications.
Project managers are expected to be in near-continuous communication with all stakeholders.
