Chapters 1 and 2 of the PMBOK® Guide provide a basic structure for the field of project management. These chapters introduce project management and the context or environment in which projects operate. Together, these first two chapters contain many important definitions and concepts that must be understood before attempting the remaining chapters of the PMBOK® Guide.
Project management overview questions on the PMP exam mainly cover definitions, concepts, and approaches. You must be very familiar with PMI terminology. Projects, programs, portfolio management, stakeholders, project and product life cycles, organizational structures, and influences are among the topics covered.
