The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) constitutes the official Project Management Institute PMI® guidance and is used to define the minimum knowledge an individual must possess to be considered a candidate for the Project Management Professional (PMP®) accreditation.

The combined capabilities of ITIL® and Project Management, and the clear understanding of key knowledge areas, activities of both frameworks and how they collaborate and correlate are critical success factors to ITSM program implementation.
