PMI launches the PMBOK in Hindi

PMBOK® is now available in Hindi as well
A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge better known as the PMBOK® Guide published by the Project Management Institute (PMI) has made a debut in India with a Hindi edition. Regarded as the project manager's bible worldwide, the PMBOK Guide is recognized by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as an American National Standard.

India being a fast growing country has taken up various projects across sectors like infrastructure, IT, construction, housing, railway, etc. Project Management plays a vital role in successful and timely running and completion of projects. Understanding the importance of project managers in India, PMBOK Guide has been translated to Hindi.

The Guide recognizes 42 processes that fall into five basic process groups and nine knowledge areas that are typical of almost all projects. Each of the nine knowledge areas contains the processes that need to be accomplished within its discipline in order to achieve an effective project management program. Each of these processes also falls into one of the five basic process groups, creating a matrix structure such that every process can be related to one knowledge area and one process group.
