Certifications

PMI certifications enable project professionals to demonstrate their mastery of the tools, strategies, and communications needed to advance projects on time and on budget in alignment with organizational strategy. PMI continues to expand its certification portfolio to align to modern career journeys, including offering more products for those at the beginning of their career journeys and experienced professionals seeking to develop new skills.

Standards

The 2019 publication of The Standard for Earned Value Management marked the most recent addition of an ANSI National Standard to PMI’s portfolio, delivering a valuable new offering for organizations and U.S. Government agencies.  We also released The Standard for Risk Management in Portfolios, Programs, and Projects; The Practice Standard for Scheduling – Third Edition; The Practice Standard for Work Breakdown Structures – Third Edition; The Practice Standard for Estimating – Second Edition; and Benefits Realization Management: A Practice Guide.

Work also began on the development of the PMBOK® Guide – Seventh Edition, and PMIStandards+, a brand new digital product.  Developed through a customer-centric and iterative approach, the new edition of the PMBOK® Guide will be inclusive of the full value delivery landscape, while PMIStandards+ launched as an MVP to deliver PMI’s standards, guides and supplemental content in an accessible, interactive, digital solution. Both products are expected to launch in 2021.

New PMP in 2020

The PMP certification has long been considered the “gold standard” of the profession - distinguished from competitors for its rigorous certification process that demonstrates commitment, its global recognition, and its credibility in designating someone as holding real-world project management experience.

Every 3 to 5 years, PMI conducts exhaustive research to determine how the  project management profession has progressed, the impact of emerging trends, and how the responsibilities of project managers have changed. We ran a new round of research in 2019 and experts from leading organizations around the world worked with us to define the PMP of the future.

As we identified, project professionals need more diverse skills and approaches than ever before. The PMP is evolving just like the profession; that’s why the future exam will focus on three new domains – people, process, and business environment, with content that spans the value delivery spectrum, including predictive, agile, and hybrid approaches across all three domains.

The new exam is currently slated for launch in early 2021.
