The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) is a widely used model of project management based on prior experience. This standard does not distinguish between small and large projects, but small projects, with their limited schedules and budgets, face challenges using the extensive structure proposed by this standard. It has been suggested that the standard can be adapted to each project within its specifications; however, the tailoring procedures are complex, time-consuming, and at times impossible to apply to small projects. The present study examined whether or not the PMBOK is an appropriate model for small projects. To address this issue, a questionnaire was prepared and sent to 134 professional project managers. Analysis of the data confirmed that the assumption that PMBOK is a challenge to small projects was not contradicted. Most participants agreed that the procedure should be tailored to prioritize the standard tools and guiding techniques, in addition to the knowledge areas, for small projects.
