A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) is PMI’s flagship publication and is a fundamental resource for effective project management in any industry. Over the years, business has changed considerably, but projects remain critical drivers of business success.

The guide includes The Standard for Project Management. The standard is the foundation upon which the vast body of knowledge builds, and the guide serves to capture and summarize that knowledge. 

The PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition and Agile Practice Guide were created to complement each other. Together these two publications are a powerful tool that enable the right approach for the right project. When you order the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition (in English) you will receive a complimentary copy of the Agile Practice Guide.

This dynamic duo presents solutions for project delivery professionals across the entire spectrum of approaches — from predictive to adaptive and everything in between.


The PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition/Agile Practice Guide is available (print and download) in English and 11 additional languages (Arabic, Chinese [simplified], French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese Brazilian, Russian and Spanish).
