On March 10th we released our new 6th edition PMP® certification training course. The course contains 15 chapters, end of chapter quizzes and a mock exam.
Several things have changed in the new version of “A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge” (PMBOK)® Guide.
What has changed?
In September 2017, a new version (6th Edition) of the PMBOK® Guide will be released. Since the PMP exam is based on the current version of the PMBOK Guide, the PMP® Exam will also change. This change is to ensure the PMBOK® Guide remains relevant and reflects current practices.
What to Expect on the Updated Exam:
Although the PMP® Exam is not solely focused on the PMBOK® Guide, it is one of the primary references. Some of the updates 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 your PMP® certification, then you can expect to find the following updates in the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition:
A new chapter has been added which focuses on the role of the project manager 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 cannot:
- Time Management is now Schedule Management
- Human Resource Management is now Resource Management
Every Knowledge Area features four new sections:
- Key Concepts
- Trends and Emerging Practices
- Tailoring Considerations
- Considerations for Agile/Adaptive Environments
Many of the Project Management Knowledge Area processes’ Inputs, Tools & Techniques and Outputs have changed. You will need to familiarize yourself with all of the revised processes.
New sections to be reviewed:
- Implementing Agile
- (Annex A3) – Overview of Agile and Lean Frameworks
