PMBOK® Guide 6th edition released September 2017

Agile PMBOK Covers

A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) is PMI’s flagship publication and a fundamental resource for effective project management in any industry. It has been updated to reflect the latest good practices in project management.

The PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition and the Agile Practice Guide were created to complement each other. Together, these two publications make up a powerful tool that facilitates the right approach for the right project.

When you order the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition (in English), you will receive a complimentary copy of the Agile Practice Guide.

The main changes apart from the addition of the Agile Practice guide are:

Two knowledge areas have changed names:

- Time Management changed to Schedule Management.
- Human Resource Management changed to Resource Management.

Each knowledge area has 4 new sections:

- “Key concepts”
- “Trends and emerging practices”
- “Tailoring considerations”
- “Considerations for agile/adaptive environments”
