The 10 Project Management Knowledge Areas (PMBOK)

The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) is a set of standard terminology and guidelines for project management published and updated by The Project Management Institute (PMI). PMI has divided the large field of project management into 10 more digestible parts, which it calls the 10 project management knowledge areas. These knowledge areas coincide with the process groups, which are project initiation, project planning, project execution, monitoring and controlling, and project closing. The knowledge areas are the core technical subject matter, which are necessary for effective project management.
Project time management is a time consuming process that involves creating a schedule, defining activities, and verifying scope. It also involves creating a work breakdown structure (WBS), which is a graphic breakdown of project work. To create a schedule, tasks must be sequenced, resources must be estimated and assigned, and the duration of each task must be determined. Earned value management is performed regularly to make sure the actual plan is proceeding as it had been planned.
