Process Interconnection Diagrams

PREMIUM deliverable
by Talha Elgazzar

A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) explains process inputs and outputs in a graphical representation, but shows this individually for each process without connecting the processes in a knowledge area in one diagram. This collection of maps not only achieves this, but also has connected all project processes (except the integration processes) in the same diagram with a minimum number of lines crossing. This collection of PDFs includes a diagram of each knowledge area that shows all of the internal connections, and then all are put together in one map. Also included is a Project Integration Management Diagram. Collectively, they serve as a great study aid or a nice refresher for experienced PMs.
