What: A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Seventh Edition and The Standard for Project Management are combined into one book and can be downloaded for free to any PMI member at the link: https://www.pmi.org/pmbok-guide-standards/foundational/pmbok.


The PMBOK® Guide – 7th Edition is PMI’s flagship publication and is a fundamental resource for effective project management in any industry. The Standard for Project Management is the foundation upon which the vast body of knowledge builds, and the guide serves to capture and summarize that knowledge.


These resources were developed by project management practitioners for project management practitioners. This series of book club meetings will explore how these PMI resources apply to your organization. We will discuss such questions as:

  • Are the standards relevant to my organization?
  • Can I and my organization benefit from reading and applying this material?
  • What information do you think is missing that would be helpful to me and my organization?
  • What do you think about PMI’s move from a process-based standard to a principle-based format?
  • Where do you think the project management profession is headed, and is PMI aligned in that direction?
