Whew! By the time you’ve got through the first page of the PMBOK® Guide you’ll have come across the terms Knowledge Areas and Process Groups. (They are always capitalized because they are really important.) Add to that a ‘normal’ process and you’ve got three very different things that form the backbone of the book.
But here’s the thing. They overlap, interact and depend on each other. It’s so easy to get confused between a PMBOK Knowledge Area and a Process Group, and then don’t get me started on those 47 processes that are supposed to fit in somewhere. It’s essential to get your head around how everything slots together when you are preparing for the PMP® exam.
