6 changes to the PMBOK® Guide 6th Edition, You Should Know

It is that time for project managers. It comes every 4 to 5 years when Project Management Institute (PMI)® makes a new release of the PMBOK® Guide. It causes fear and anxiety to some, excitement and eagerness to others. PMI released an exposure draft of the PMBOK® Guide 6th Edition in July 2016. 

In this article, let's learn what PMBOK® Guide is? Why does it change, what is the reason PMI makes these changes, what specific changes have occurred in the PMBOK® Guide in the 6th edition and most importantly, how do these changes affect the Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification exam.

Global Teq recommends that you get PMP certified before the official launch of the exam. The goal of project managers must be to expand their knowledge. PMI's new PMBOK® Guide will provide extra fodder to expand your horizons and continue learning. Even if you have a PMP certification now, we recommend, that you enroll in our PMP certification training courses if you want to stay current with project management standards and guidelines.

When is PMI launching the new PMP Exam and how should I prepare?

·         PMI released the exposure draft (beta version) of the PMBOK® Guide 6th Edition

·         PMI has tentatively planned to launch the official PMBOK® Guide 6th edition in the 3rd quarter of 2017 in English and 10 other languages. This usually addresses the largest segment of PMP exam takers.

·         The PMP Exam is expected to be updated to the new PMBOK® Guide material sometime around the 1st Quarter of 2018.

Note: This timeline also applies to the CAPM exam!

When will Global Teq update their material to reflect the new PMP Exam content?

Global Teq has already started updating their course material based on the exposure draft of PMI. The fine-tuning and refinements will continue through the end of 2017 to ensure the course continues its ability to produce the 98% pass rate.

What has been Global Teq's experience with PMBOK® Guide and PMP Exam changes?

At Global Teq, we are highly experienced in recognizing patterns of change and effect of such change. Our instructors have taught using the third, fourth, fifth editions of the PMP exam and have thus, phenomenal experience in dealing with major changes in content, structure and philosophy as it relates to the PMP exam.

PMP exam boot camp provider.
