PMBoK® Guide - The Complete Guide to Knowledge Areas and Process Groups

Written by pmp_ admin. Posted in complete guides PMP Exam is all about PMBoK Guide! (Well, in fact about 75% of the exam is based on the PMbOk Guide content; about 25% are about other topics like ethics and so on. We will come to that stuff later on ...)
By the time you’ve got through the first page of the PMBOK® Guide you’ll have come across the terms Knowledge Areas and Process Groups.  Add to that a ‘normal’ process and you’ve got three very different things that form the backbone of the book.

They overlap, interact and depend on each other. It’s so easy to get confused between a PMBOK Knowledge Area and a Process Group, and then don’t get me started on those 47 processes that are supposed to fit in somewhere. It’s essential to get your head around how everything slots together when you are preparing for the PMP® exam.

Trust me – it does all slot together. By the time you get to the end of this article from our friends of  you’ll fully understand the difference between a Knowledge Area, a Process Group and a process. You’ll know how they complement each other and most importantly, you’ll know why they matter. Because at the end of the day understanding all this stuff is fundamental to delivering projects successfully, not just passing a test.
