The Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge published by the Project Management Institute provides a roadmap of 47 processes designed to support project managers in all phases of project management. The sheer number of processes and their allocation across process groups and knowledge areas may leave project managers in a quandary about where to start and how to apply the many components of project management processes.

What is lacking is a simple explanatory guide for the layman that clarifies the “big picture” of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). This explains where a project manager should begin when managing projects, and how the project manager can easily make use of the PMBOK framework to progress from an initial idea to a project schedule.
