For Government Project Management in PMBOK style Aug 31, 2007
This extension to the PMBOK Guide provides an overview of key attributes of project governance that apply to most government organizations and that are generally recognized as good practices with widespread consensus about their value and usefulness. It is not designed as a replacement for the PMBOK, but is an extension to it, providing how to adapt the PMBOK material for this arena. *Not* a stand-alone read or concepts for general use in itself, but if you're in this area the value is that it maps between the PMBOK and government use. Most of the mappings are simply pointing to the PMBOK or pointing to the PMBOK with an alteration provided. CHAPTERS: 1 - Intro (5 pgs), 2 - Project Life Cycle and Organization (4 pgs), 3 - Project Management Processes for a Project (1 pg, largely points to Chap 3 of PMBOK), 4 - Project Integration Management (4 pgs), 5 - Project Scope Management (3pgs), 6 - Project Time Management (4 pgs), 7 - Project Cost Management (5 pgs), 8 - Project Quality Management (6 pgs), 9 - Project Human Resource Management (5 pgs), 10 - Project Communications Management (6 pgs), 11 - Project Risk Management (6 pgs), 12 - Project Procurement Management (15 pgs), Appendices (19 pgs). p.s. You may also wish to view the 2000 version, and if applicable, you may also wish to look at the DAU produced extension to the PMBOK, the US Department of Defense Extension to: A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (288 pgs).
