While the current PMP exam content focuses on five domains as the stages of the project lifecycle, the new PMP exam content will be based on the following three domains:
1. People 2. Process 3. Business Environment
Based on PMI’s research of current project management jobs that today’s project management practitioners work, they found that project managers work in a variety of project environments and utilize different project approaches. Accordingly, the PMP certification will be reflective of this and will incorporate approaches across the value delivery spectrum.
The exam will split equally between traditional, predictive project management (as per the PMBOK Guide) and Agile or hybrid approaches (set out in the Agile Practice Guide). And predictive, agile, and hybrid approaches will feature in questions across all domains and tasks. PMI is clear that the future is as agile as it is planned, and that its exam must balance the two approaches equally, as will its PMPs. The following figure shows the percentage of each domain on the PMP exam.
