    • The PMP exam is changing in the first quarter of 2018. The exact date of the examination change will be announced soon.
    • Anyone taking the exam prior to Q1 2018 will receive the current version of the exam that references the PMBOK Guide® – Fifth Edition.
    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

    Happy Learning !!!
