read this paper together with this month's Musings: A
Look Back at the Original (PMBOK) Framework - Part 2.
This paper is
a repeat of what I wrote more than thirty years ago (1987).
Again, I think it is worth repeating because while parts have been quoted quite
often, to my knowledge it was never pursued officially in the development of the
PMP (Project Management Professional) examinations of the day.
paper represents what we saw in those days as the typical environment of a project.
From the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) of the Project Management
Institute, developed by the PMBOK Standards Committee and approved by the PMI Board
of Directors, PA, USA, March 1987.
