Mapping the PMI-ACP Exam

PMI Agile Exam BreakdownSo, word on the street is the PMI Agile (Project Professional Certified Practitioner) Certification pilot will begin in just a few weeks.  For those interested in participating in the pilot or taking the exam in a few more months, PMI was kind enough to provide an examination content outline.  Though it’s only 16 pages in length, I started to reorganize the data so people can see what they’re up against.  Download the PMI-ACP Exam Matrix.

Here is a breakdown of the exam

Agile Tools and Techniques (50% of Exam)
I’ll write another post about that later

Agile Knowledge and Skills (50% of Exam)
Percentage of Knowledge and Skill Content / % of Exam
Level 1 (65% / 33%)  (18 knowledge/skills)
Level 2 (25% / 12%) (12 knowledge/skills)
Level 3 (10% / 5%) (13 knowledge/skills)

    Good graphic, but the percentage is wrong for level 2 – should be 25% / 13%.

      Good catch! I fixed it. Now I’m working on a mapping the Agile activities in a similar fashion to page 43 of the PMBOK. Thanks for checking my numbers.
