PMBOK® Guide Extension for Software Projects Published

PMI has collaborated with IEEE Computer Society to jointly develop the Software Extension to the PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition. This new standard provides readers with a balanced view of methods, tools and techniques for managing software projects across the life cycle continuum. Designed to be used in tandem with the latest edition of the PMBOK® Guide, it helps to bridge traditional and iterative approaches.

The committee that developed the Software Extension to the PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition was comprised of volunteers from both PMI and IEEE Computer Society, and drew upon the expertise of programmers, IT professionals and project managers from around the globe.

As is the case with all PMI standards, PMI members may download a free digital copy of Software Extension to the PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition by logging in to and visiting the library of standards page.
