PMBOK Guide 6.0 coming in September

Posted by mikeberry | CAPM,PMP | Tuesday 1 August 2017 12:29 am

September 6, 2017,  PMI will release Version 6 of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) Guide.  The updates in the new guide reflect slight adjustments to the framework expanding it to encompass managing equipment as well as human resources, and changing terminology from “control” to “monitor” in many areas.  In addition, PMI will publish the new Agile Practice Guide which will become PMI’s definitive resource for all things Agile.   The PMP and CAPM tests will not change until January, 2018.
