Did You Know?
The Project Management Professional (PMP)®, along with all PMI certifications, is driven by current practices in the profession. Because project management is evolving, so is the PMP exam.
- As a result of the release of the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition in September 2017, the PMP exam will change 26 March 2018. These updates will ensure the exam content is consistent with the PMBOK®Guide.
- Active practitioners from around the world author our exam questions as well as the PMBOK® Guide to ensure the PMP remains relevant and reflects current practice.
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:
- Key Concepts
- Trends and Emerging Practices
- Tailoring Considerations
- Considerations for Agile/Adaptive Environments
Anyone who would like to build a foundation of project management knowledge and skills. The PMP certification is applicable to all industries including:
- Finance & Insurance
- Business & Professional Services
Not all Project Managers are PMP certified and, consequently, project managers who lack the credential perform less efficiently than their certified peers. The standards for the rigorous PMP exam are higher than other PM certifications, and it tests professionals on all five project management processes – initiating, planning, executing, monitoring & controlling and closing, providing the Project manager with a detailed, standardized, actionable set of project management best practices drawing from all five processes.
A PMP Credential holder realizes a dramatic and steep hike in salary, with the certification. On average, PMPs earn 17% more than their non-certified counterparts, according to the Project Management Salary Survey, Eighth Edition.
Further, new research from the Project Management Institute, suggests that 71% of project managers saw an increase in compensation over the last 12 months. PMPs earn a median salary of $110,000 a year. Project Management Salary Survey
