Table B-1 shows the 44 project management processes. The intersection of the knowledge area and each stage (initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing) describes the activity that happens at that point in the project. For example, follow the project scope management row and the controlling column to find Scope verification and change control. The number next to each process represents the number of processes you'll find in that process group.
