The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) is a group of processes and knowledge fields which are generally accepted as greatest practice within the project management discipline. The PMBOK Guide is also an internationally recognized standard which provides the fundamentals of project management as they apply to a wide range of projects. PRINCE2 is a project management methodology standard in the United Kingdom and Europe. This standard is the required method for all UK government commissioned projects. PRINCE2 is in the public domain and offers best practice guidance on how to manage a project. The aim of this study is to compare PRINCE2 and PMBOK to recognize the characteristics of these best practices in order to provide decision criteria for governments with regard to selecting IT project management methodology.
