PMI Lexicon of Project Management Terms

The PMI Lexicon of Project Management Terms offers you a standardized set of frequently used project, program and portfolio management terms with clear and concise definitions.  Included are 145 terms that have a unique use in the profession and high relevance to its vocabulary.

While our Combined Standards Glossary© contained all of the definitions from PMI’s global standards, in some instances the definitions differed from standard to standard. The lexicon is the first step toward a consistent PMI “dictionary.” More terms will be added over time.

PMI standards committees, now equipped with a uniform set of definitions that span related PMI standards, will use the lexicon without modification.

For anyone involved in project management, the PMI Lexicon of Project Management Terms is an important resource to foster understanding and consistent usage of terminology.
