BREAKING NEWS: PMI has released when PMP Exam will change [and also what]!

The Project Management Professional (PMP)®, along with all PMI certifications, is driven by current practices in the profession. Because project management is evolving, so is the PMP exam.

  • As a result of the release of the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition in September 2017, the PMP exam will change 26 March 2018. These updates will ensure the exam content is consistent with the PMBOK® Guide.
  • Active practitioners from around the world author our exam questions as well as the PMBOK® Guide to ensure the PMP remains relevant and reflects current practice.

What to Expect on the Updated Exam

Although the PMP is not a test of the PMBOK Guide®, it is one of the primary references for the exam. Some of the updates you can expect to see surround lexicon changes and terminology used within the exam as well as harmonization of process groups, tools, and techniques.

If you’re utilizing the PMBOK Guide® as a study tool for the PMP, you can expect to find the following updates in the PMBOK Guide® – Sixth Edition:

  • A new chapter on the role of the project manager has been added to focus on leading projects effectively – competencies, experience and skills that are all necessary.
  • Two Knowledge Areas have been re-named to more accurately reflect which elements can be managed… and which can not:
    • Time Management is now Schedule Management
    • Human Resource Management is now Resource Management

Every Knowledge Area features four new sections:

  1. Key Concepts
  2. Trends and Emerging Practices
  3. Tailoring Considerations
  4. Considerations for Agile/Adaptive Environments

More detailed information about specific exam changes will be released over the next few weeks/months.

The Exam Content Outline (ECO) for the PMP won’t be changing as that’s based on a Role Delineation Study which PMI hasn’t re-done for that designation.

In the Q&A section – which is included in our Module about the upcoming changes which is part of our  Exam prep guidance program – we do answer all the following questions regarding the PMBoK Guide 6th Edition Changes and also the related PMP Exam Changes:

  • What are the known Facts?

  • What will be New in the 6th Edition of the PMBOK Guide®?

  • What are the Impacts on PMP Aspirants?

  • What about Updated PMP Exam Prep Materials?

  • What if I’ve already Got MY PMP Certificate?

  • … many more …

In addition we have commented all the facts based on our yearlong experiences. And of course you can ask your own questions within the comments section and we will do our best to answer them to your satisfaction. And may be we will add your question also to our Q&A collection!
