The short answer is these process all happen in parallel. The best way to wrap your head around this is to watch the Ricardo Vargas Process Flow Video: (
). He explains it much better than I can!

Ah. It is sequential to an extent but most of the activities are parallel.
Example - You need Project Charter to develop the Project Management Plan.
But to complete developing the Project Management Plan- you need to finish scope, cost, resource planning, etc.. So, its all parallel.

Hi Viswa,

if you are thinking about the different processes within a single Knowledge Area (KA) it's easier to identify some sort of sequential path. However, Karthik's question was more on the Knowledge Areas and - as Kyle said - almost everything runs in parallel. I like the way this is discussed in the video, while also illustrated in the schemes in the PMBOK Guide, showing lots of interactions within and across KAs.
