The primary goal of this Project Management resource is to promote and articulate the practical applications of the principles, processes, and methods defined in the "A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge" (PMBOK® Guide1). 

Although these principles can be applied to any type of projects, however, our main focus will be on how to apply them in managing software development projects. 

We do encourage you to use and cross-reference the PMBOK® Guide along with this resource.

The PMBOK® Guide can be purchased directly from the Project Management Institute (PMI®2) at www.pmi.org

This information resource is for you whether you are:

  • Already a project manager that wants to achieve the Project Management Professional - PMP®3 Certification
  • A Project Manager needing an online quick reference resource. 
  • About to become a Project Manager who wants to learn project management principles. 

All projects inherently have the same common problems but the good news is that there are common solutions to these problems; this is what the PMBOK® Guide is all about.

Managing projects is about applying project management framework processes to satisfy project goals to successfully deliver the expected quality, achieve project objectives and satisfy stakeholders' expectations.

The PMBOK® Guide has changed the way we can manage our projects using the framework it provides, and information you need to know as a project manager. Although, The PMBOK® Guide is just a guide, nevertheless, if you grasp the framework and information it provides, you will definitely be a much better project manager. The goal is to help you be that better project manager. To achieve that, we are going to explain and shed the light on its practical applications using plain English, illustrations and templates.
