Creating an Overview of BABOK Knowledge Areas with LaTeX

Last week I attended a CBAP preparation course (materials from http://www.watermarklearning.com/cbap, held by http://www.masventa.eu). To prepare myself for the exam I created an overview of all knowledge areas using TikZ’s magnificient graphics functions. Together with a little ifdraft magic I got a nice file.
