Managing in Complex Project Environments

Girl's Guide to Project Management

How do you manage a project when it feels like walking through fog? When you don’t know what you don’t know, and the environment is shifting so much that it’s virtually impossible to keep track of all the moving parts? You focus on what you can control. You look at the one or two small things you can do to influence the issues you’ve got now. And you go with it.  READ MORE


Certification Changes

There are exciting, new changes coming to the PMI certification program. You can expect to see:

  • Better support to your career journey: creating stepping stones that help advance skillsets and link one certification to another.
  • More customized offerings: your needs change as you progress through your career so PMI certifications will adapt to address this as well.
  • Modernization: better reflection of real-world work experiences and practices.
  • Recognition of specialized skills: acknowledge the skillsets acquired through professional development efforts

The first change was to Pearson VUE for all certification exam delivery to provide more testing locations — over 5,000 worldwide and a better overall exam experience.

On 28 August, the following:

  • CAPM no longer requires 1500 hours of practical experience. Applicants will still have to have 23 hours of project management education completed before the exam and a secondary degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree or the global equivalent) to apply.
  • PMP applicants no longer require 35 hours of education if they are CAPM holders

In September, New Question Types on CAPM Exam

In June 2020, the Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam will be updated to ensure it reflects up-to-date practices and equips project managers with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in today’s modern project environments.
