PMP Exam Content Outline Update - June 2019

pmp-exam-changes-in-2019


PMI® the leading authority in Project Management, has announced that the PMP® Exam will change to reflect the new PMP Exam Content Outline (ECO) - June 2019.

PMI has moved the last day for candidates to take the current version of the PMP® exam to 30 June 2020.

Starting 1 July 2020, the PMP exam will reflect the new exam content.

The new exam will focus on three new domains:

  1. PEOPLE – emphasizing the skills and activities associated with effectively leading a project team
  2. PROCESS – reinforcing the technical aspects of managing a project
  3. BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT – highlighting the connection between projects and organization strategy


Content that spans predictive, agile and hybrid approaches, will be included across the three exam domains. The best way to understand what is included in the exam is to review the updated Exam Content Outline - June 2019.

This change will not effect the large proportion of content of current PMP® Certification courses which reflect the PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition (released in September 2017).

CMI's programme team will make amendments to some course material to reflect the ECO content changes released in June 2019.

 A total of 8 new tasks has been added to the 4 or 5 domains.

  • 3 tasks added to Initiation
  • 1 Task added to Planning
  • 2 Tasks added to Executing
  • 2 Tasks added to Monitoring and Controlling.
  •  Minor changes to other tasks and to terminology and language.


Contrary to what many students and trainers may think, the PMP exam is NOT based on A Guide to The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). The PMBOK® Guide is only one of several references PMI uses to design their PMP exam questions. Instead, the exam is based on The PMP Examination Content Outline. A new version of this outline was published in June 2019, and PMI will use this new outline as the basis to update the exam.

This has an immediate implication for students starting 
PMP® Certification courses with CMI from April 2020. All students will of course, be attempting test questions reflecting the new ECO (Exam Content Outline) and not the old ECO.

The CMI Programme team made up of experienced Project Management teachers and trainers with several years PM experience, are busy making amendments and changes to the programme test questions.

PMP® Certification courses delivered by CMI from October 2019 will include the new PMP® Exam Content Outline (released June 2019).
