Exam changes PMI PBA 25th June 2018 onwards

Postby amritsingh Mon Mar 12, 2018 8:36 am

Hello Seema

Few questions for you

1) Do we have enough information on what are the potential changes to PMI PBA exam from 25th June onwards.

2) PMI specified that exam outline has not changed but terminology might have.From point of view of someone who is currently preparing for this with aim of sitting for exam around July/August what changes are required to be made for preparation?

3) Should one focus on new "PMI PBA guide to Business Analysis". Is it very different from the original study guide?

4) From what is written on PMI website it seems to me there is not much that is changing.

Thanks

I have read the new guide, and yes it is true that there are not many changes. The book introduced in ITTO form and concepts are explained in details.

We will update the course. If you are preparing currently, then you will just need to understand ITTO concepts and which we will take few days to fill those gaps.

Does that mean ITTO's need to be memorised? or understanding of these should be enough?

Also will you be posting new guide in Quampus?

We posted Business Analysis Practice Guide because initially, PMI provided it FREE. Now it is Licensed copy with each user.

ITTO is not required to memorize; You need to understand the intent of each process and what all needed to carry out that process and what has to be done to get the desired output.

I have written a blog on ITTO for PMP, which is equally true for PBA: https://www.izenbridge.com/blog/pmp-itto/

Hello Seema

In light of PMI-PBA exam changing from 25th June onwards ( though there is not much change), when can we see the tutorial videos updated (if they need updating)? Will these be posted as seperate Videos so one can know the differences?

Thanks

We will start upload by end of the May. We will either update the same course or create a new one. We will decide based on analysis of impacts.

Hello Sonkiya

When you start adding new content in relation to PMI guide to business analysis will you be marking/ tagging new content in some way like date or some other indicator. So as people who are already preparing they can pick up whats new and what was already there?

Thanks

Yes, I will mark in the video caption. The old content will remain applicable to the new pattern as well. So candidates who are planning after 25th June need to go though both newly added content and the old one.
