At the end of last year the PMI published it's fifth edition of 'A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide)'.

The new guide is scheduled to become the basis for the PMP and CAPM exams on the 31st July, so if you plan to take your exam on or after this date use the fifth edition of the guide. If you plan to take the exam before the 31st July continue with the fourth edition of the guide.

Key changes:
  • 10th knowledge area added called ‘Stakeholder Management’
  • Increase from 42 to 47 Processes
  • Many areas expanded and new terminology used
