I wanted to get a "BIG" picture of how the processes are connected with each other and how they flow. The reference books I'm currently referring to have data flow diagrams broken down by the knowledge area. Anyone has a big picture diagram linking and involving all processes and / or data flow diagrams? Is this a good idea or will it be organized chaos?

Hi Kruger,
I've attached a .pdf document I created for a yahoo group I attend that teaches PM knowledge. I'd like to call your attention to slide 12. It's called the hierarchy of knowledge. It expresses in some fashion the aspect of "chartology" you are seeking.

Hi Kruger,
if i understood you, i believe you will find the needed interaction diagrams and illustrations in the PMBOK guide "ANNEX A1
THE STANDARD FOR PROJECT MANAGEMENT OF A PROJECT" this is page 416 in 5th edition. you can also check it here

in the annex you will find :
- a chart that illustrated the project management process groups interactions (Figure A1-2. Project Management Process Interactions)
- Table A1-1. Project Management Process Group and Knowledge Area Mapping.
- an illustration of the process groups in a high level with a diagram illustrating the internal process interactions.


I always find this annex useful as a quick reference , hope this is what you were searching for.

Hi Kruger,

I see this is an old thread, but I just recently joined. I started to do this and it turned out to be a very busy diagram in B&W. I may try again after exam pressure is off, clock is ticking...

I did a quick search and did not find a comprehensive flow diagram. I thought if I attempt this again, it would at least have to be in color and perhaps also in 3D !!

Hi Bob,

Haha yes I had come onto a similar conclusion, thereafter which I dropped the idea.

Hello Rahul,

I apologize for not getting you name correct previously, I must have confused this another posting. I found a diagram by Sean Whitaker that attempts to flow chart the "big picture". It is at this link:
seanwhitaker.com/pmp-study/
under How to Pass the PMP Exam, slide #32. You can try to reproduce it yourself using his "Process Mapping Game" at the same link. I still think 3_D is needed to disentangle everything!

No problem Bob :)

Although I've cleared the PMP now, that link is a useful reference for anyone else who'd be interested!

Thanks for posting.

I was intrigued by the issue under discussion too. So much that I attempted to create one myself. I believe concept of basic flow do exist in the processes of Initiating, Planning and Closing process groups. My chart focuses on flow of processes in initiating and planning process group. Though it needs improvements, however it does make things a bit clear and easy to understand. The chart is available here:
