Overview

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

Booknews
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)

    The Standard on Project Management

    The PMBOK 3rd edition is not written to serve as the "be all and end all," of "everything project management." To the contrary, it reads as a repository of practices used in project management in general and in the context of key knowledge areas. The general character of the text seems to serve all industries. As such, it has an academic quality some insist is not "real world." That is not true. The PMBOK 3rd edition is very real world. It presents an overview of the tools of the trade available, as applicable, for a broad variety of projects wrapped within the context of nine universal areas of knowledge. It is well written and logical. The process flow diagrams make the concept of project process integration easy to comprehend. It serves as a powerful desk reference on the topic of project management.

    A comprehensive guide to project management

    Volunteer committees at the Project Management Institute (PMI) created this guide to the processes involved in managing projects. Communication among clients, the project team and vendors is crucial to project management, so the book establishes a common vocabulary and a standard way of discussing a project. The book focuses on going from step to step with reliable coordination and smooth communication. Newcomers will find it helpful as they become conversant in the way professionals view and discuss project management. And, given that this is a standard work in the field, professionals are likely to regard it already as a reliable reference, including the useful process checklist. getAbstract applauds this manual's solid utility for its targeted audience. It is even quite readable, though it is directed only to insiders.

    You Need to read this to pass the PMP.

    I suggest you study some other book on Project Management first (I used Rita Mulcahey's PMP Exam Prep), as this book would be impossible to comprehend without prior understanding of the subject. Then read this book a couple of times. You will do much better on the PMP if you do.

    I Also Recommend:

    An update in 2009 from the 1996 first edition

    You have to have this to pass the current PMP exam certification.
    It has definition changes, some change in philosophy, and more detail in the analytical, numbers computations. There are many good books on the subject, this is the entire 'Bible' of project management as it is interpreted today.

    Use this for any Project

    I found this to be cheaper than the PMI site and the book is very resourceful. Well worth the sale price (free shipping too) of $38.57 and serves as a resourceful tool for projects.

    Whether you are engaged in domestic or international tasks, I encourage you to use this book as a reference guide from womb to tomb of your projects.

    Best Luck,

    Complete garbage and a waste of money

    The PMBOK Guide is an incoherent jumble of management concepts, clumped together by someone who would not even put their own name to their book. Much of the content is redundant and poorly organized.<BR/>The only reason to buy the "PMBOK" would be to study for an overpriced ($400) exam to obtain an obscure professional certification. Certainly, it's an interesting marketing ploy, but you will be very disappointed with the book.

    Good Reference But Format Could Be Improved

    Overall a good collection of project management best practices. However the format is a little dry and could use some livening. Real world project examples of implementation would also be helpful.

    Phenomenal Guidebook

    I have recently bought 2 guidebooks. Both are phenomenal, and both have changed my life. This book is a complete guide to project management, and has revived my career! (And Make Every Girl Want You by Fate and Reil is a complete guide to women, and has revived my dating life!) But more on the former. I needed to pass the PMP exam for work. And I was in dire straits. I was running out of time, and the exam was coming up. Until I found this book. This book is basically everything possible that can appear on the exam. Almost like the Cliff¿s Notes of project management! It¿s not the most fun book to read, but IS the most useful, practical guide to project management anywhere. Whether you¿re taking the PMP, or simply want to bone up on some project management to improve your career path, buy this book!
