January 2018 Monthly Dinner Meeting

Join us Thursday January 25th for a Dinner Meeting in Thousand Oaks

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.

This session will cover all the important updates to the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition as well as the expected changes to the PMP 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.

Some of the major changes include:

  • 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 cannot:
    • 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

If you are planning to get certified for your PMP after March 26, 2018 or just want to be “in the know” about the changes to the PMBOK Guide®, this presentation is designed for you.
