Dear Forum. This is my first post. I cannot find a reference in PMBOK5 to the approval process for the Project Management Plan. Who actually approves this plan? PM? Sponsor? Functional Manager? Thanks. M-P.

If the answer provides Stakeholders, i prefer stakeholders.
But Not PM. PM plan actually needs to be verified by the Functional Manager for making resource available & Project team to make aware of their activities, their calenders matching with Project schedule.etc.,

In functional organization, PM is project co-ordinator and reports to functional manager. Stake holders participate in preparation project management plan. It is FM who approves PM plan.

I would say in this order.
1) Functional Manager
2) Stakeholders - Have major input in the decision of what goes in the project management plan but doesnt approve the plan.

It all depends on what kind of organization structure you have. Usually, it will be the project manager that will get involved with this. - Doug Battista
