Project Integration Management

Project Integration Management is the first project management knowledge area that includes the processes and activities needed to identify, define, combine, unify, and coordinate the various processes and project management activities within the Project Management Process Groups.

The Project Integration Management knowledge area, according to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), includes the following six processes:
  • Develop Project Charter. The process of developing a document that formally authorizes a project or a phase and documenting initial requirements that satisfy the stakeholder's needs and expectations.
  • Develop Project Management Plan. The process of documenting the actions necessary to define, prepare, integrate, and coordinate all subsidiary plans.
  • Direct and Manage Project Execution. The process of performing the work defined in the project management plan to achieve the project's objectives.
  • Monitor and Control Project Work. The process of tracking, reviewing, and regulating the progress to meet the performance objectives defined in the project management plan.
  • Perform Integrated Change Control. The process of reviewing all change requests, approving changes, and managing changes to the deliverables, organizational process assets, project documents, and the project management plan.
  • Close Project or Phase. The process of finalizing all activities across all of the Project Management Process Groups to formally complete the project or phase.
