The present article deals with the development of a generalized body of knowledge in project management. In this paper, a set of processes of this generalized body of knowledge is formed. The set of processes is created on the basis of standard PMBOK by using the standard ISO 21500, plan-driven methodology PRINCE2, SWEBOK Guide as well as Agile methodologies SCRUM, XP, and Kanban. Activities of PRINCE2 and SWEBOK, practices of XP and Kanban were represented as processes. The generalized body of knowledge also includes the processes proposed by the experts. All processes of the generalized body of knowledge were distributed over ten knowledge areas and eight processes groups. Process tables were formed.
