Software Engineering, Project Management, and Effectiveness
Here is a quick map of the process groups, knowledge areas, and processes in the PMBOK (Project Management Body of Knowledge). Regardless of the PMI certification, I think it’s useful to know how the knowledge for project management is organized by experts and professionals. This will help you more effectively navigate the space, and learn project management at a faster pace, because you can better organize the information in your mind.
If you are a program manager or a project manager, the categories are especially helpful for checking your knowledge and for thinking of projects more holistically. You can also use the knowledge areas to grow your skills by exploring each area and building your catalog of principles, patterns, and practices.
