It was in year 1983 when volunteers on Project Management Institute (PMI) came together for the first time to summarize all the knowledge about project management. Today, the PMBOK Guide is recognized as the global standard for project management and is one of the best and most varied resources available to everyone involved in project management. Guide thru PMBOK contains basic procedures that are necessary for all project managers in order to achieve high standards of project excellence.
PMI is international association for project management located in the USA and branches throughout the world, including Croatia. Because of that United States location, its standard is accepted as the ANSI and IEEE standard that branches use also. In addition to PMI, there are several organizations involved in promoting project management, of which IPMA (International Project Management Association), and APM (Association of Project Management), are the most important in Europe. Like PMI, IPMA has issued its own set of knowledge, IPMA Competence Baseline and APM has released its own set of knowledge APM Body of Knowledge, and they also offer certification of project managers, as well as PMI.
PMBOK Guide is taken as the leading tool for managing projects and is required reading for every project manager. Also it’s taken as the key reference to ensure efficiency and quality for project management in Info Novitas.
