Project Management Body of Knowledge in the Context of PMI and ISO

Part of the Knowledge Management and Organizational Learning book series (IAKM, volume 5)


The main objective of this chapter is the identification and analysis of the body of knowledge related to project management in the context of PMI(R) and ISO standards and norms. The chapter highlights the need to manage all the knowledge generated within the project (e.g. historical information, best practices, knowledge of the processes, lessons learned etc.) in order to improve organizational processes, reduce the time of project management and reduce the cost of the project. It also suggests that, through the correct application of these normative knowledge areas and their diffusion in the project management culture, organizations can expect to govern their businesses more effectively and efficiently.
