In 1983, a group of volunteers from the Project Management Institute (PMI®) came together and designed the basics of project management skills. Later, this knowledge developed into a global standard for project management: Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®). Although the way companies operate over the decades has changed considerably, good project management practices have remained key to achieving the best business results. The PMBOK® guide is today widely recognized as a comprehensive standard for effective project management.
Over the past few years, emerging technology, new approaches and rapid market changes have changed the world of work, driving the profession to evolve. A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Seventh Edition has been updated to meet these challenges, better align to how people work today and help you be more proactive, innovative and nimble.
This edition of the PMBOK® Guide:
Including both The Standard for Project Management and the PMBOK® Guide, this modern edition presents 12 principles of project management and eight project performance domains critical for the effective delivery of project outcomes.
You can purchase the book on the PMI® website (https://www.pmi.org/pmbok-guide-standards/foundational/pmbok), where a guide for all PMI members is available free of charge in an electronic version.
