A Project Manager's Book of Forms: A Companion to the PMBOK Guide - Fifth Edition, 2nd Edition

Book Description

A compendium of ready-made forms for managing every project in line with the latest PMBOK® Guide—Fifth Edition

This valuable companion to the Project Management Institute's A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)—Fifth Edition presents a comprehensive and practical set of forms and reports that help project managers apply the concepts and practices described in the PMBOK® Guide.

Designed specifically to assist both new and experienced project managers in handling all aspects of a project, this edition of A Project Manager's Book of Forms contains forms that cover all the process groups: initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing. It also includes some forms not mentioned in the PMBOK® Guide, which you will find helpful in managing your project.

Use the forms as a guide in collecting and organizing project information, or as a template for ensuring a set of consistent data on all projects. The forms can also be adopted on an organizational level to enable a repeatable approach to project management.

Completely editable electronic versions of all the blank forms, in Microsoft Office-compatible format, are available on an accompanying website. You may use them as is or tailor them to your own needs.

The PMBOK® Guide covers the processes for managing a project; this book gives you a handy road map of forms to use to make every project just a bit smoother from start to finish.
