Process Groups: A Practice Guide

Process Groups Guide

Need help on how to get work done using traditional project management practices?

Then, Process Groups: A Practice Guide is the right supplemental guide for you. This important companion to A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), offers useful and practical guidance for a predictive approach to project management practices. This practice guide influences your way of working, ensuring you are equipped with the information you need to succeed in this changing profession.

What’s in the guide?

You’ll find a process-based project management approach for guiding your projects, aligning methodologies, and evaluating project management capabilities.

This guide uses a popular Process Groups model that will help you with:

  • Initiating
  • Planning
  • Executing
  • Monitoring and Controlling
  • Closing

In addition, you will learn about 49 processes within these five process groups along with inputs, tools and techniques, and outputs associated with those processes. This practice guide shows the processes considered good practices on most projects, most of the time.

Our standalone, supplemental practice guides dive into practical knowledge, including specific ways of working – whether it be agile, predictive, or hybrid. Similar to how our Agile Practice Guide was created for professionals who choose an agile approach and Choose Your Wow! was created for professionals who choose a hybrid approach, Process Groups: A Practice Guide is a new resource created for professionals who choose a primarily predictive approach.
