Abstract

In today’s fast-changing environment, changes are necessary if a company wants to survive on the market. The ability of organisations to make and implement changes can be the key factor of success. Projects and project management have a big role in this process. Many organisations have introduced different standards for project management. So, today, there are a few project management standards that can help organisations in directing a project into a regular and systematic framework. The main goal of this paper is to analyse and make a comparison between two of the most popular versions of project management standards: ISO 21500 and PMBOK 6th Guide. A general overview of differences and similarities, definitions of important terms of project management, project management processes and knowledge areas were essential for analysis. The 6th edition of the PMBOK® Guide and ISO 21500 standards are very similar. A set of processes are pretty organised similarly, but the approach of those two standards is different. The ISO 21500 standard is about process introduction and inputs and outputs of the project. At the other side, PMBOK® Guide gives more detailed picture about project management processes, their inputs, and outputs as tools and techniques in a more detailed way. Also, it is noticed that processes are matching in many cases, but there is a difference in naming style noted.
