Whether you are a senior executive or a project manager, it's your job to help your organization grow and increase its value to its stakeholders. Project management is the unique organizational competency that manages change and drives competitive advantage - with the outcome of delivering results in line with corporate strategy. A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) - Third Edition is the map to get you there.

In 1983, Project Management Institute (PMI) volunteers first sat down to distill the project management body of knowledge. Today, the PMBOK Guide has become the world's de facto standard for the project management profession and is one of the best, most versatile documents available across major industries. The PMBOK Guide contains the fundamental, baseline practices that drive business results for any organization-local, regional or global. More than a million copies of the PMBOK Guide are in use. The PMBOK Guide - Third Edition has been updated to reflect the most current industry knowledge and practices.

One of the most important changes in this edition is the evolution from "generally accepted on most projects, most of the time" to "generally recognized as good practice on most projects, most of the time." Several chapters have been updated, rewritten or expanded to include the most current and pressing information facing project managers today. The PMBOK Guide - Third Edition also includes an expanded index and glossary to reflect the changes that the project management industry has seen during the last four years.

The PMBOK Guide - Third Edition reflects the collaboration and knowledge of project management leaders who deliver business results. Successful project management is a constant advantage in the dynamic nature of today's organizations. Companies, non-profits, and government agencies around the world are turning to project management to achieve corporate strategic objectives. As recognition of the value of project management continues to grow, the PMBOK Guide will become even more of an indispensable tool for practitioners across all organizations, industries and regions.

Editorial Reviews

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. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
