A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge PMBOK® Guide 7th Edition and the PMP® Certification

We offer private group training services for organizations looking to upskill their team members with a live-instructor. I recently completed all the modules and prepping PMP Certification 2021 PMBOK 6 (Beginning) Lessons for the PMP exam scheduled for Sep/Oct. These will hone and refine your exam-taking skills and have been split into each and every Module as a powerful revision aid.

PMP Certification 2021 PMBOK 6 (Beginning) Lessons

If you are a beginner it doesn’t mean that you need to hire somebody who will be “couple books ahead” of you, lives around the corner, because it is more affordable and convenient. You want to learn correctly from the beginning, so you will not need to relearn in the future, which is a lot harder. If you are intermediate or advanced – no questions, that you need a professional teacher.So, the first two questions that will normally come are – how much and how far. Though those two things are  important, but they are not crucial.

Capturing Knowledge is Part of How We Work

We see both these methods side by side in the 6th Edition. The fact that this process is in the Executing Process Group assumes that this knowledge gets collected in and around the work of creating the deliverable. The new exam now comprises 180 questions instead of 200, two 10-minute breaks instead of one, three “domains”—phases of project management—instead of five, among other changes. Make sure the material you are studying reflects the change.

Project management and our careers within it are a continuing story, not a stairway that ends with a closed door.

Steve has lectured part-time at local universities teaching courses in Project Management, Information Systems and Systems Analysis at both graduate and under-graduate levels.

An Introduction to Agile Project Management

The Project Management Institute (PMI)® plans a new edition of the A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) for release on August 1, 2021. Although it is tempting to want ALL my PMP Certification tools at the very beginning, I urge you to let me introduce them to you at the precise learning point where they will give you the optimum benefit. You will see that the 2021PMP MASTERCLASS has been designed into 28 PMBOK Modules. As you will know, the 2021 PMBOK syllabus has been revised and updated to include 50% of the exam questions on PMP Agile. Composing a little less than half of the exam, the people section includes questions on leading and building teams, managing conflict, supporting virtual teams, mentoring, and other related topics.

The business environment portion of the exam deals broadly with the more business-minded aspects you’ll have to tackle as a project manager, like compliance, delivering value, and supporting organisational change. A guide to PMP certification, including what it is, costs, entry requirements, and training. You will learn enough to decide whether the qualification is for you and if not, other examples of courses are given. Changes from the PMBOK® – Sixth edition are more than some process tweaks. The upcoming PMBOK® Guide – Seventh edition has updates including performance domains, tailoring, and models, methods, and artifacts.

My PMP experience and recommendations

A survey by PM Exam Lessons Learned found that successful exam takers dedicated two to six months for practice. The PMI reports that the average successful PMP candidate spends at least 35 hours preparing for the exam. Third, establish and follow a plan, then stick to it!!! Just like any other project, your study plan should have a start and target finish date.

As of 2022, the exam fee was £460 for non-PMI members and £335 for PMI members. A PMI membership was £107 a year, with a one-time £8 application fee, making the exam slightly cheaper with a membership. For online testing, ensure your system is ready for exam day by conducting an OnVue system test. Ultimately, whether a PMP certification will be worth it to you professionally and financially depends on your unique circumstances. Here are a few benefits you might see with a PMP under your belt to help you navigate your decision.

Review this video by Ricardo Vargas that explains the PMBOK Guide 6th Ed Processes. I found it very helpful to wrap my head around how the processes are interrelated in the PMBOK. I downloaded his processes flow charts and had them printed and laminated at Office Depot. Helped in following processes during practice exams and retraining. Thanks to Matthew Oles who offered this suggestion months ago. I thought I failed, and didn’t even answer all the questions as I raced to finish the exam in the allotted time.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
