This year AXELOS and Peoplecert slightly changed their regulations for taking online exams for all certifications in AXELOS portfolio – ITIL(r), PRINCE II, MoR and many others.
After registering for online exam a candidate can download a software and check technical parameters of his/her computer or a laptop, i.e. webcam, audio devices, Internet connection and bandwidth. Note, that WiFi is eligible, but not recommended.
Prepare your room and desk. Nobody should attend in a room except a candidate; desk should be clear – only a laptop or a monitor and a keyboard. A door should be behind a candidate, visible in a webcam and closed.
Check your data and wait for a proctor.
Proctor greets a candidate and asks to show (photo) an id with a photo, candidate’s face and a room and a desk.
A candidate should have a cell phone/smartphone nearby in the room, but not on the desk in a silent mode.
During an exam a candidate is allowed to use a printed copy of an appropriate AXELOS book and 4 blank sheets of paper for notes.
During an exam a candidate should not stand up or move, look at any other places than a monitor and speak loudly.
In case of any questions or challenges a candidate can type to a proctor. In case of breching Internet connection a proctor calls a candidate and gives instructions.
On January, 15th, PMI(r) published 37 pages of the draft standard PMBOK7.
The main change – and challenge – there are PRINCIPLES instead processes now. PMBOK Standard 7th delivers 12 main project management principles.
Knowledge areas will be described later (probably in electronic form only).
The draft is devoted to soft skills area at 90% level. It seems a bit strange to me ’cause hard skills in the PM area are of high value as well.
The draft presents the “umbrella” approach to project management, including predictive (waterfall), agile and hybrid models. As a part of this approach the project leader role is introduced. This role unites project manager, scrum master and other leadership roles.
Another ‘strange’ item for me is the descriptive approach. Standards are usually predictive. But this one contains descriptions, examples, and references to ‘others”.
The PMP 2020 new version seems to be in line with this draft.

We recommend the bright in-depth research by our ResearchGate colleagues. Their work deals with the fuzzy analysis of demands of a corporate Portfolio/Project management system.
In fact this work is a very rare attempt of scientific mathematics (fuzzy logic) based analysis instead of expert one concerning information systems of a corporate level.
PMI announced the CAPM – the first step certification for project administrators and managers – are available now in an on-line mode 24×7.
After registration and application approval (experience OR PDUs) a candidate can pass an exam using his/er own notebook from any location.
