Note: This pocket book is available in several languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Dutch.Dieses Taschenbuch bietet, wie der Titel schon sagt, eine Zusammenfassung des PMBOK® Guide . Hatten Sie mit dem PMBOK® Guide bisher noch nichts zu tun, dann werden Sie möglicherweise erstaunt sein zu hören, dass der PMBOK® Guide (A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge) als weltweiter De-facto-Standard im Projektmanagement anerkannt ist. Mehr als zwei Millionen Exemplare sind bisher im Umlauf gebracht. Bis jetzt jedoch fehlte für diese ziemlich umfangreiche (ANSI-)Norm eine leicht zugängliche und kurze Einführung.Dieses Taschenbuch möchte diese Lücke durch die Ihnen hier vorliegende Zusammenfassung schließen. Auf organisationsweiter Ebene unterstützt der PMBOK Guide ® einen strukturierten und gut abgestimmten Ansatz für einen Projektlebenszyklus und stellt sicher, dass alle Beteiligten (=„Stakeholder“) die gleiche Sprache sprechen. Es wird die praktische Anwendung von Projektmanagementprozessen verbessern, wenn diese nun von allen verstanden und konsequent angewendet werden. Die Flexibilität des Konzeptes ermöglicht allen Organisationen und Projektteams die individuelle Anpassung an ihr jeweiliges Niveau und ihre jeweiligen Bedürfnisse – häufig auch als „schlankes Projektmanagement“ bezeichnet...Das ist genau das, was das Project Management-Institut (PMI) mit dem PMBOK® Guide erreichen möchte. Der PMBOK® Guide wurde zu DER internationalen Norm im Projektmanagement und viele Projektmanagementmethoden beziehen sich auf ihn. Der PMBOK® Guide leistet daher einen grundlegenden Beitrag für die Projektarbeit und den Projekterfolg. Dieses Taschenbuch ist für Projektauftraggeber (Sponsoren), Projektmanager/-leiter und Projektteammitglieder besonders nützlich, da dies die drei Schlüsselrollen sind, die hier unterschieden werden. Ebenso nützlich ist das Buch für Projektnebenrollen (zum Beispiel für Mitglieder eines Projektmanagementbüros (PMO)). Es unterstützt alle Projektbeteiligten inzweierlei Hinsicht:• Besseres Verständnis ihrer Rolle in Projekten, die auf bewährte Praktikenim Projektmanagement beruhen;• Verbesserung eines organisationsweiten Projektmanagementansatzes.

Media Reviews "I have been doing project management for over 30 years and am considered a subject matter expert in the PMBOK(r) Guide -Third Edition primarily because I am the Project Manager who led the team that developed this edition. As a consultant I was hired to review and evaluate eight of the top selling PMP Exam Preparation books for their accuracy in following the PMBOK® Guide - Third Edition. I have developed and taught a PMP Exam Prep course for a leading R.E.P., and taught PMP Exam preparation classes for PMI Chapters. I can honestly say that Head First PMP is by far the best PMP Exam Preparation book of all I have reviewed in depth. It is the very best basic education and training book that I have read that presents the processes for managing a project, which makes it a great resource for a basic project management class for beginners as well as a tool for practitioners who want to pass the PMP exam. The graphical story format is unique, as project management books go, which makes it both fun and easy to read while driving home the basics that are necessary for preparing someone is just getting started and those who want to take the exam." --Dennis Bolles, PMP DLB Associates, LLC and co-author of The Power of Enterprise-Wide Project Management "This looks like too much fun to be a PMP study guide! Behind the quirky humor and nutty graphics lies an excellent explanation of the project management processes. Not only will this book make it easier to pass the exam, you'll learn a lot of good stuff to use on the job too." --Carol Steuer, PMP and PMBOK(r) Guide, 3rd Edition Leadership Team "This is the best thing to happen to PMP since, well, ever. You'll laugh, learn, pass the exam, and become a better project manager all at the same time." -- Scott Berkun, author of The Art of Project Management and The Myths of Innovation "Original, fresh, and fun... this is truly the perfect study companion for anyone aiming for PMP certification." --Teresa Simmermacher, PMP and Project Manager at Avanade "I love this format! Head First PMP covers everything you need to know to pass your PMP exam. The sound-bite format combined with the whimsical images turns a dry subject into entertainment. The organization starts with the basics then drills into the details. The in-depth coverage of complex topics like Earned Value and Quality Control are presented in an easy to understand format with descriptions, pictures, and examples. This book will not only help you pass the PMP, it should be used as an daily reference for practicing project managers. I sure wish I had this when I was studying for the exam." --Mike Jenkins, PMP, MBA "I think that under the fonts and formalized goofiness, the book has a good heart (intending to cover basic principles in an honest way rather than just to pass the test). Head First PMP attempts to educate potential project managers instead of being a mere "how to pass the PMP exam" book filled with test taking tips. This is truly something which sets it apart from the other PMP certification exam books." --Jack Dahlgren, Project Management Consultant "Head First PMP is a great tool to help make sense of the Project Management Body of Knowledge for the everyday Project Manager." --Mark Poinelli, PMP About the Book A PMP certification is more than just passing a test. It means that you have the knowledge to solve most common project problems, and proves that you know your stuff. Once you're certified, your projects are more likely to succeed because you have the skills and knowledge to make them successful. Not only that, it can mean a better job, more money, and greater respect from your peers. But studying for a difficult four-hour exam on project management isn't easy, even for experienced project managers. You want to remember everything that you're learning about project management, but your brain is working against you! Your brain craves novelty, and most PMP certification prep books are anything but novel. When you keep putting down a boring book instead of studying, it's because your brain doesn't think the information in it is worth learning. Your brain has more important stuff to think about, like how to keep you alive and out of danger-and it doesn't think that failing the PMP exam qualifies as life-threatening! So how do you trick your brain into thinking that your life does depend on learning everything you need to know to pass the PMP Exam? Head First PMP is the answer! Using the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science and learning theory, Head First PMP has a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works-a multi-sensory experience that helps the material stick, not a text-heavy approach that puts you to sleep. Head First PMP offers 100% coverage of The PMBOK® Guide principles and certification objectives in a way that's engaging, not tedious. This book helps you prepare for the PMP certification exam with a unique method that goes beyond answers to specific questions and makes you think about the big picture of project management. By putting project management concepts into context, you will be able to understand, remember, and apply them-not just on the exam, but also on the job. With Head First PMP, you get the best of both worlds: a thorough and effective preparation guide for the PMP certification exam with hundreds of practice questions and exam strategies, along with puzzles, games, problems, exercises and the unique Head First approach that makes learning easy and entertaining. When you're done with Head First PMP, you'll know your stuff, you'll pass the exam, and you'll be able to bring everything you've learned to your job.

Project Management: Theory and Practice, Third Edition gives students a broad and real flavor of project management. Bringing project management to life, it avoids being too sterilely academic and too narrowly focused on a particular industry view. It takes a model-based approach towards project management commonly used in all industries. The textbook aligns with the latest version of the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) Guide, which is considered to be the de facto standard for project management. However, it avoids that standard’s verbiage and presents students with readable and understandable explanations. Core chapters align with the Project Management Institute’s model as well as explain how this model fits real-world projects. The textbook can be used as companion to the standard technical model and help those studying for various project management certifications. The textbook takes an in-depth look at the following areas important to the standard model: Work Breakdown Structures (WBS) Earned Value Management (EVM) Enterprise project management Portfolio management (PPM) Professional responsibility and ethics Agile life cycle The text begins with a background section (Chapters 1–9) containing material outside of the standard model structure but necessary to prepare students for the 10 standard model knowledge areas covered in the chapters that follow. The text is rounded out by eight concluding chapters that explain advanced planning approaches models and projects’ external environments. Recognizing that project management is an evolving field, the textbook includes section written by industry experts who share their insight and expertise on cutting-edge topics. It prepares students for upcoming trends and changes in project management while providing an overview of the project management environment today. In addition to guiding students through current models and standards, Project Management: Theory and Practice, Third Edition prepares students for the future by stimulating their thinking beyond the accepted pragmatic view.
