PD001 – Difference between PMBOK 4th and 5th ed

I moderate a yahoo group that has an engaging forum for PMP aspirants. Among other things it is also a source of free preparation material, a platform to exchange ideas and a place for sharing tips & tricks. The group’s name is pmi-pmp-prep. It is an closed group and aspirant are welcome to join the group by visiting http://groups.yahoo.com/group/pmi-pmp-prep/. An aspirant can also join the group by sending a blank mail to pmi-pmp-prep-subscribe@yahoogroups.com.

Recently, one of the group members contributed a series of posts explaining the differences between PMBOK 4th edition and PMBOK 5th edition. I thought these posts would be useful for general community so I decided to reproduce the posts in this blog. All the best.

Here goes the first one
