Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) Changing?


Question: PMBOK changing?


“I heard about the PMBOK changing in August 2011.  How will this impact the CAPM exam?”



Answer: PMBOK changing?


The next version of PMI’s PMBOK  is NOT coming any time soon. We can expect it to be released in 2012 and to impact exams 6 months or so after that.   There are some changes to the PMP exam coming in August 2011. How much the exam will actually change is still not really clear. However, the CAPM exam will NOT be impacted by these changes in August – the CAPM exam, and CAPM exam training, will be unaltered until the next version of the PMBOK is released.
