PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge) is considered to be “the knowledge base that every project manager should possess”. It originated in the US and is a comprehensive encyclopaedia of information on all things to do with project management.
Contrary to popular belief, PMBOK should be used in conjunction with PRINCE2®. These are not two separate approaches to project management, but instead are designed to complement each other on how to manage your projects.
Get up to date with PMBOK with the latest guide: A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) – 4th Edition. This is a reference guide and a subset of the PMBOK, which is generally accepted as best practice and is applicable to most projects.
