PMBOK 7 and the changes to the New PMP Exam

Summary   

The new PMBOK version 7 is scheduled to be released in August. A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) is PMI’s flagship publication and is a fundamental resource for effective project management in any industry. Over the years, business has changed considerably, but projects remain critical drivers of business success.

The book includes The Standard for Project Management. The standard is the foundation upon which the vast body of knowledge builds, and the guide serves to capture and summarize that knowledge.

The purpose of this presentation is to help attendees become familiar and knowledgeable about PMI, the new PMBOK and more.

Grow Your Skills

It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. The PMP credential is a critical component, but in recent years the project management discipline has moved towards more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies. In addition to the traditional waterfall approach several new emerging methodologies are now in high demand. Training and credentialing in these methodologies is becoming highly sought after among Project Management Professionals and is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
