PMBOK 4 vs. PMBOK 5 Edition – What is the difference?

The PMBOK® Guide (5th Edition) release   

For over a decade project managers and candidates preparing for the CAPM have used a book called, “A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge”, or PMBOK® Guide, as their primary reference material to help standardize the processes and vocabulary of project management. On December 31st, while the rest of the world will begin counting down to ring in the New Year, the Project Management Institute (PMI) will also be celebrating the release of a new publication, the 5th edition of the PMBOK® Guide.

What’s new?

Considering that human beings have been managing project for thousands of years, there have not been major innovations in the field over the last 4 years. However, leading practitioners have collaborated on making changes to help enhance its organization, consistency, and application in an industry agnostic way. One of the most notable changes will be the addition of a new chapter, or knowledge area, for stakeholder management. Historically this was handled through the set of communication management processes. Some of these have been moved and a few new ones have been added. Another major change is the creation of 3 new planning processes to create management plans for scope, schedule and cost. Historically, these were an implied subset of the Integration process named Develop Project Management Plan. Other changes include minor revisions to the inputs, tools and techniques, and outputs for various process for improved process definition.

I’ve studied the 4th edition, but haven’t taken the exam – what does this mean for me?

For CAPM® candidates who have studied the 4th edition, you will have approximately 1 months to take the exam before it changes, on July 31st. We recommends taking the exam before the change as there will be some vocabulary changes and 5 new processes.

 

I am already a CAPM®- What does this mean for me?

Existing CAPM® credential holders will not be required to retake the exam, so long as they fulfill their continuing educational requirements.

 

Conclusion

While the core of the project management body of knowledge remains the same in the 5th edition, exam takers should be aware of the differences, and consider timing of taking their exam accordingly.
