Project Management training courses now based on PMBOK® Guide

13 July, 2009

The Project Management Institute (PMI) have released a new version of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, (PMBOK® Guide) - Fourth Edition, Project Management Institute, Inc., 2008. This is the fourth edition and all Project Management Professional (PMP)® exams are now based on this version from July 1st 2009. All our Project Management training courses and PMP® exam preparation courses have been updated to reflect these changes. The PMBOK® Guide itself lists the areas updated in this version. A sample of the changes are as follows:

  1. The “Develop Preliminary Scope Statement” process has been merged into the “Define Scope” process, so Integration Management is now 6 processes.
  2. Communications now has 5 processes. This is a result of Plan Communications being split into "Identify Stakeholders" and "Plan Communications"
  3. Procurement has been reduced to 4 processes Plan Procurements, Conduct Procurements, Administer Procurements, and Close Procurements.
  4. PERT estimate is back! Arrow Diagrams are gone and as a result so is GERT
  5. The classic triple constraint has been expanded!

This is just a brief overview of changes. Check back with us over the coming weeks and we will be outlining the changes in each Project Management knowledge area and how this affects you PMP® exam.
