President's Message - July 2020

In these turbulent times, change has become the norm. The PMP®1 Certification is no different. We are in the middle of the most significant changes to the certification that we have ever seen. These changes to the PMP® Certification testing are occurring because of routine certification upgrades and the impact of Covid-19 on our world.

Our NCPMI Summer 2020 PMP® Prep Class is currently in progress. Because of Covid-19, it is our very first Remote-Live PMP® Exam Prep® Class. To prevent virtual fatigue, we are teaching in three-hour segments twice a week. Because there is so much disruption in everyone’s life, our Board of Directors authorized this particular class to be taught at no cost to our members.

Covid-19 has also forced changes in the way the PMP® Certification Exam is administered. Since test centers throughout the world have been closed for months, these exams are now administered online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in your home or office. This practice will continue at least until Pearson Vue Centers throughout the world reopen.

Finally, the PMP® Exam itself is changing effective January 2, 2021. On that date, the PMP® Exam questions will be aligned to the May 2020 Project Management Professional (PMP®) Examination Content Outline. In the past, the PMP® Exam questions came from the five Project Management Process Groups of Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling, and Closing. The new PMP® Exam questions will be aligned as follows:

· People (Leadership Principles): 42%

· Process: 50% (these questions are further broken down such that 50% of them focus on Predictive lifecycles, 25 % on Agile lifecycles, and 25% on Hybrid lifecycles.)

· Business Environment: 8%.

This aligns to the Talent Triangle where we have the 3 skills of Strategic and Business Management, Leadership, and Technical.

On top of all of this, the seventh edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge is due for release in the fourth quarter of 2020. The seventh edition of PMBOK®2 will move away from the prescriptive, process driven approach of previous editions to a principle-based document that is much more flexible in how it guides us to success.

As Project Managers, we are Change Managers, and everywhere you look we are optimizing our world to meet the challenges of the environment we operate in. We are that positive force that drives beneficial change. Be proud of it!

Grow Your Skills

It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
