Cases in Project and Program Management Series #3: A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge: Pmbok Guide
Synopses & Reviews
A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK "RM" Guide) — 2000 Edition is your basic reference and the world's de facto standard for the project management profession. It was designated an American National Standard (ANSI/PMI 99-001-2000) by the American National Standards Institute in March 2001.
The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK "RM") is an inclusive term that describes the sum of knowledge within the profession of project management. The PMBOK "RM" Guide identifies and describes the subset of principles and practices within the PMBOK "RM" that are generally accepted and applicable to most projects most of the time. The guide also provides a common lexicon for talking about project management. Project management is a relatively young profession, and while there is substantial commonality around what is done, there is relatively little commonality in the terms used. An extensive glossary further aids in standardizing definitions of the most important concepts, terms, and phrases.
The Project Management Institute (PMI "RM") uses the PMBOK "RM" Guide as one of the references for the Project Management Professional (PMP "RM") Certification Examination. Major revisions and expansions of this edition include:
The PMBOK "RM" Guide is one of those indispensable tools that you will want at your fingertips, both at work and in your home office. Selected as a suggested resource for CAPM "TM," CAQ "RM" Automotive Product Development, CAQ Capital Projects, CAQ Information Technology Systems, CAQ Information Technology Networking, and CAQ Project Management Office exam preparation.
Book News Annotation:
An update from the 1996 first edition of the reference to generally accepted knowledge in the profession of project management. Among the changes are more emphasis on progressive elaboration, an acknowledgement of the role of the project office, and the expansion of the treatment of earned value management. The new edition will replace the old as the official reference for the Project Management Professional certification examination in 2002.
