New PMP Exam 2021
Starting on January 2, 2021, the new PMP exam will focus on three domains instead of the five process groups. The three domains include people, process and business environment. In contrast, the process groups comprise of initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing.
Three PMP Exam Domains
First, for the people domain, expect to see questions that will emphasize the skills and activities that project managers must perform to effectively manage projects. Second, the process domain will reinforce the technical elements of managing projects. Third, the business environment will highlight the connection between projects and organization strategy.
Predictive and Adaptive
Questions will not just cover predictive (traditional) project management approaches. As a result, there will be adaptive (agile) and hybrid techniques as well. Expect to see roughly 50% predictive and 50% adaptive questions.
