This is the first industry sector-specific book associated with the Project Management Body of Knowledge. This volume references the PMBOK Guide, Third Edition and is designed to be used in conjunction with it. However, it interprets this foundational guide, adapting it for use in public sector projects. It highlights two distinctive factors that are unique to government projects: laws that define the execution and enforcement of responsibilities that often impact projects and the responsibility of the project team to serve as stewards of the public interest. These two critical differences between public sector projects and those in for-profit business settings is emphasized throughout this book.
