Hello Vinod,

Reading The Agile Practice Guide is recommended but not strictly necessary. You may encounter some questions about Agile/Adaptive Environments on the PMP Exam but the primary focus is going to be on the more traditional, predictive methodologies.

Hello Cornelius Fichtner

Thanks for the response. Is there a reason for the assumption that Agile Practice Guide carries lesser weight. Since this is the new addition to the PMBOK scope, i see it as a integral & import part of the updated exam.

Would like to know your views.

Hello Anonymous,

It is now a question of 'weight', but instead a question of "What does the PMP Examination Content Outline say?".

I've contacted PMI directly about this and received the following answer from Simona Fallavollita who is Product Manager at PMI:

“The Agile Practice Guide offers a more comprehensive perspective on agile applications and is a useful resource for gaining a greater understanding of this approach to project management. In-depth knowledge of agile practices is not required for the PMP, though. There could be some agile questions on the PMP exam as we know the practice of agile methods is growing in prominence and project managers need to be equipped to choose the most appropriate approach for their projects. However, any agile related questions would still need to fit within the context of the current PMP exam content outline. That being the case, people should not expect to see in-depth assessment of agile topics on the PMP exam.”
