Hi there,

The PMBOK is organised by knowledge areas. These are 10 in total including stakeholder management as a recent addition in its fifth edition.The PMBOK guide reflects a strong execution orientation, tackling hardly any issue on strategy and project definition, the management of external factors, or human behaviours. It fits within the dominant raetionalist view of the project management discipline.

The APMBOK has more breadth and cover areas ranging from context to strategic planning and aims to achieve royal charter status, whereas PMBOK is more of a practitioner reference book and aims to be the prime reference document for PM practitioners.

There are clear differences of scope. APMBOK is much broader in conceptual breadth and scope
