The PMBOK® Guide—Fifth Edition is the pre-eminent global
standard for project management. It provides project managers
with the fundamental practices needed to achieve organizational
results and excellence in the practice of project management.
Like previous editions, this resource presents generally
recognized good practices and reflects continually evolving
knowledge. It reflects the collaboration and knowledge of
working project managers and provides the fundamentals of
project management as they apply to a wide range of projects.
New features in the fifth edition:
n A 10th Knowledge Area has been added. Project Stakeholder
Management expands upon the importance of appropriately
engaging project stakeholders in key decisions and activities.
n Project data information and information flow have been rede-
fined to bring greater consistency and be more aligned with
the data, information, knowledge and wisdom model used in
the field of knowledge management.
n Four new planning processes have been added: plan scope man-
agement, plan schedule management, plan cost management
and plan stakeholder management. These were created to
reinforce the concept that each of the subsidiary plans is inte-
grated through the overall project management plan.
