PMBOK stands for Project Management Body of Knowledge and folks tend to pronounce the acronym as PIM-bawk.
It’s all captured in a book full of jargon, diagrams, and math formulas. In other words, it’s kind of intimidating.
The best approach I’ve found is to pretend that PMBOK is like a fussy baby, a scared dog, or other savage beast that might be soothed by singing to it. Fortunately Hanson is here to the rescue!
You’ll find that singing PMBOK to the tune of “Mmmbop” will soon have your computations of earned value, planned value, and actual cost moving forward in harmony.
