As many of you are aware, a new Project Management Professional (PMP)® examination was released on 31 August 2011 as a result of a recent Role Delineation Study (RDS). The PMP RDS is the foundation on which this professional certification is based. This enlightening presentation will present background on the 31 August examination changes, a discussion on the RDS, and a quick comparison of the RDS to the PMBOK Guide. Additional topics will include a comparison of the difficulty level, what was dropped (or added) to the examination and what may no longer be in scope. While this presentation is geared to students planning on taking the PMP test, active PMP members will benefit as we gain a better understanding of our changing role and our important contribution.
