10.1.1. Software Engineering Body of Knowledge Software Engineering ISBN-13: 978-0769551661 346 pages v3.0, 2014 description Software engineering, both as a discipline and as a profession, is at a pivotal point in its evo-lution. Although software has become critical in the development of most new human-created systems, the concepts, principles, and methods for engineering software are still neither well defined nor uniformly agreed upon. The lack of consensus regarding software engineering practice and the requisite competencies creates confusion and has serious consequences for the evaluation, acquisition, and application of software engineering knowledge. This report presents an effort to organize and catalogue a body of knowledge for software engineering and to provide a systematic, concise, and complete description of the software engineering discipline. This body of knowledge can assist organizations in defining and improving the software engineering competencies of their workforces; it can help educational institutions in defining software engineering curricula; it can provide a basis for classifying academic and industrial research and development efforts; and it can improve the understanding and prac-tice of software engineering. recommended extension Encyclopedia of Software Engineering

The CITBOK is an outline of the knowledge bases that form the intellectual basis for the IT profession. CIPS has identified a core CITBOK that all professionals would be expected to master and specialty bodies of knowledge that would depend on your area of practice. When setting this Canadian standard for Information Technology (IT) knowledge, CIPS looked to other organizations and internationally for standards and bodies of knowledge that CIPS could adopt or adapt, especially for the specialty areas. For example, in 2004, CIPS adopted the British Computer Society (BCS) Professional Examination Study Guide Syllabus Diploma level (Core and 11 specialist modules) as the initial Body of Knowledge for CIPS.
