    PMI is bringing updated / new Standards and Practice Guide for PMP, PgMP, PfMP, PMI-ACP and PMI-PBA. Three PMI standards will be updated this year, including the release of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Sixth Edition in September 2017. These updates will be followed by updates to their respective certification exams early in 2018. A new standard and a new practice guide will also be introduced in 2017, as depicted below.


    Many people are eagerly waiting for these publications. Some of you are wondering if you should be preparing for your exam based on existing or new publications. My simple advice, given that you still have few months to go before the change of these books, you should go for the exam based on existing material. It is possible that many training providers and the books will not be ready.

    Please note there will be huge rush during the last 2-3 months, to avoid any disappointment, please prepare and book your exam ASAP.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks & Regards
