Transforming the PMBOK® Guide

Transforming the PMBOK(r) Guide BookOver the last twenty years, the PMBOK® Guide has been evolving with the growth of project management. The guide grew from nine knowledge areas to ten, from thirty-seven processes to forty-seven and from less than 200 pages to more than 600 pages.

During this period, PMI published numerous other standard documents, some as practice standards, others as supplements to the PMBOK® Guide, and a few publications covering advanced topics. These changes have impacted the guide.

On the other hands, Mr. Mounir A. Ajam, SUKAD CEO, has identified numerous gaps, inconsistencies, and areas for improvement in the guide. Some of these improvements are minor, others are major, and a few are significant in nature and may challenge the conventional wisdom for some project management practitioners.

This book is about transforming the PMBOK® Guide toward an applied approach to project management.
