While going through PMBoK Guide, on page 71 and subsequently on page 73 (in Figure 4.1) I learned that there are 6 processes in Project Integration Management Knowledge Area.
But in various other online resources, I found that there are 7 processes mentioned with additional being 'Develop Preliminary Scope Statement'
Is this additional process mentioned (which is not seen in PMBoK Guide - 4th Edition), is valid and correct?
Please help me correct my understanding, if I am missing some inputs.
