What is PMBOK ® ?

P.M.B.O.K or often pronounced phonetically as Pimbok refers to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, not the Project Management Book of Knowledge as it is often referred.  It is a recognised trademark of the Project Management Institute also known as PMI and aims to set the standards to govern the best practice of Project Management.

The PMBOK ® guide is in its 5th edition is a continually improving guide developed and added to by practicing project managers, volunteer committees and the general public.

Your can buy the PMBOK ® 5th edition through a number of sources including the author’s site.  However the cheapest price I found was through Amazon.  The book can be downloaded as a paper back or for kindle so it can be read on mobile devices.

A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge: PMBOK(R) Guide

The 5th Edition is the most current and used as a basis for the PMP exam.  If you want to know how to pass the PMP exam a good starting point is the PMBOK guide.
