PMBOK® guide-- third edition

an overview of the changes

The PMBOK® Guide serves as a reference for anyone interested in project management by focusing on knowledge and practices applicable to "most projects most of the time". The general consensus is that the PMBOK® Guide is valuable and useful. In fact, the PMBOK® Guide has become the de facto global, standard for project management.With over 1,000,000 copies of the PMBOK® Guide in circulation, PMI has received thousands of valuable recommendations for improvements. As a result of those inputs, and the expansion of the body of knowledge, PMI volunteers, under the project leadership of Dennis Bolles, PMP, stepped forward once again to support the profession by preparing an updated version of the PMBOK® GuideThe paper describes the changes to the PMBOK® Guide, including the addition of seven new project management processes, the deletion of two project management processes to change the total project management processes from 39 to 44. In addition, 13 processes were renamed.
