They should have redone the ECO back when the exam was updated for the PMBOK Guide, Sixth Edition.

Other than that, it's a wait and see game to understand the specific nature of the changes but based on what has been shared so far, it feels like a much bigger change than the last one...

Kiron - I agree...

I really don-t understand the why of the change now and not in the coming version. Because there will be another exam change after this as well due to the version change right?

Can someone explain?
It will be interesting to see how much of the Agile Practice Guide they will add to the PMP exam, as opposed to using it for the ACP.

We currently have a PMP and a PMI-ACP certification. My point is, will the Agile Practice Guide - which comes with the PMBOK Guide - be reserved to upgrade the PMI-ACP certification exam only? Or will some of its content also be added to the PMP certification exam?

I think new certifications related will be introduced to agile with be introduced after acquiring DAD.

Like Kiron said, we shall wait and see.

George, my only comment on this is that I also think that this change should have been done when they issued the Sixth Edition but generally speaking, I like the way their new ECO is structured.
