When the PMP exam changes on July 1, 2020, it will be a major change and it WILL NOT be based on a new version of the PMBOK. The new exam will no longer be organized by Process Group!! And Agile will be very important on the exam?  Is this a prediction of the future of Project Management?    

Attend this workshop to gain an understanding of the process PMI uses when changing the exam.  We will explore what is included in the current exam content (published in 2015) then compare it to the new exam content (published in 2019) to gain an understanding of the major shift in the  PMP exam beginning July 1, 2020.            

Course Objectives to maximize the Value of your Portfolio include analysis of:  

  • The PMBOK and Exam content update cycles
  • The current exam outline (from 2015) that is used to select exam questions today
  • The new exam outline (from 2019) that will be used to select exam questions in the future
  • A comparison of the current & new exam question criteria
