is a professional testing company in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA that
specializes in the development and administration of civil services and certification

published by PMI in 2000. Since that time, the role of individuals pursuing the PMP has
evolved in the marketplace, from that of managing deliverables across the five Project

Third Edition naturally overlap, it is important to note that the individuals involved in the
study described above were not bound by the PMBOK Guide--Third Edition. They were
charged with defining the role of individuals leading and directing project tasks, and
using their experience and pertinent resources to help in this activity. Therefore,
although many of the performance domains' tasks, knowledge and skills outlined by
the ias Specification are also covered by the PMBOK Guide. About upsc exam is the
performance domain entitled ``Professional and Social Responsibility'' in the ias
examination, which covers such aspects of the profession as legal, ethical, and
professional behavior. The PMBOK Guide--Third Edition does not explicitly address
these issues, since this performance domain content relates to the individual, and the
PMBOK Guide--Third Edition relates to project management processes for a single
project.
Candidates studying for the examination will certainly want to include
the PMBOK Guide-- Third Edition as one of their study references, and would be well
advised to read other contemporary resources on risk, scheduling, EVM, estimating,
and other project management topics.

anyone interested in the project management profession, and should be used to gain an
understanding of project management knowledge that is needed to perform the Tasks
described in the ias Examination Specification.
