Altino José Mentzingen de Moraes
The theory presented by PMBoK© - Project Management Book of Knowledge , edited and maintained by PMI - Project Management Institute, which deals with the issues of how to administrate a Project efficiently and planned, is already widely known and recognized by the world professional community as a strong orientation of best practices and effective working tool in this field.
The PMBoK© - Project Management Book of Knowledge directs the Phases and the Disciplines that must be addressed in leading a Project, whether it be, both to meet the construction of projects in Engineering Area or to meet the System Development Projects in the Area of IT - Information Technology.
In the latter Area, namely the area of IT - Information Technology, the theory presented by PMBoK© - Project Management Book of Knowledge is already intensively applied for some decades. However, the System Development Methodologies in IT - Information Technology area is being reviewed by the emergence of new technical resources and new visions of interpretation of the business by the Organizations.
In that way, this study intends to evaluate the current impact of these revisions (in System Development Methodologies in IT - Information Technology area) may result in new versions of the PMBoK© - Project Management Book of Knowledge, which, also implemented revisions and at this moment is in its 5th.Edition.
In conclusion, after some simulations in a practical environment, it is verified the usefulness of this paper (and its “Table of Definition of Specific Features of Project”, which try to support the decision about what is the best System Development Methodology in IT - Information Technology area to be applied to a specific Project) as an effective management and planning tool in corporate real world.
