Overview

A handy compendium of ready-made forms for managing every project

This valuable companion to A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide)—Fourth Edition presents project managers with a comprehensive and practical set of forms and reports that help them apply the concepts and practices described in the PMBOK Guide.

Written by the project manager of the team that updated PMI's PMBOK Guide—Fourth Edition, A Project Manager's Book of Forms is designed specifically to help both new and experienced project managers handle all aspects of a project. The forms cover all the Process Groups: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling, and Closing. It even includes some forms not mentioned in the PMBOK Guide, which you will find helpful in managing your project.

Use the forms as a guide in collecting and organizing project information, or as a template for ensuring a set of consistent data on all projects. The forms can also be adopted on an organizational level to enable a repeatable approach to project management.

For your convenience, completely editable electronic versions of all the blank forms, in Microsoft Office–compatible format, are on the included CD-ROM. You may use them as is or tailor them to your own needs.

The PMBOK Guide covers the processes for managing a project; this book gives you a handy road map of forms to use to make every project just a bit smoother from start to finish.
