Government Extension to the PMBOK® Guide Third Edition

Book Description

The Government Extension to the PMBOK® Guide-Third Edition, extends the baseline information included in the PMBOK® Guide-Third Edition to provide an overview of the key project governance processes used in most public sectors, define key terms, describe atmospheres where government projects operate and review the management life-cycle of government programs. In so doing, the Government Extension outlines the guiding principles for government projects and provides a framework that helps ensure their efficiency, effectiveness and accountability. This updated Government Extension is a must-read for project management practitioners involved with government contracts, as well as anyone who wants a better understanding of the PMBOK® Guide as it applies to the government sector. This book features the same, easy-to-follow numbering system as PMI's pre-eminent standard, and unaffected areas of the PMBOK® Guide are identified as such, with references made to the corresponding PMBOK® Guide sections. Revised or additional government-related content is clearly indicated.
