What is a project? And what is project management? A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique product, service or result, while project management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.
Project management is accomplished through the appropriate application and integration of 47 project management processes, which are categorized in initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing. These 47 project management processes are further grouped into ten separate knowledge areas, which are used on projects most of the time.
A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) is a book that provides guidelines for managing individual projects and defines project management related concepts. The PMBOK® Guide identifies that subset of the project management body of knowledge that is generally recognized as a good practice. Thus, it does not mean that the knowledge, skills, and processes described should always be applied uniformly on all projects, but, for any given project, the project manager, in collaboration with the project team, is always responsible for determining which processes are appropriate.
