Because the Project Management profession is evolving, so too must the associated standards and guidelines. PMI is revising the Project Management Body of Knowledge - Guide and expects to publish it in the 3rd Quarter of 2017. The PMI PMP and CAPM certification examinations are based on the PMBOK-Guide. Therefore, the certification examinations will be updated and implemented following the publication. PMI will develop a change management plan and we will provide information and links to relevant articles from this page.
