Putting It All Together

So how do you frame 37 processes within five process groups and nine knowledge areas? Within the PMBOK Guide to Project Management resides a description of each of the 37 processes, the nine knowledge areas, and the five process groups of the iterative process model of Project Management. Putting the processes within the context of each knowledge area is detailed in Table A.1.
