Which Edition of PMBOK Guide will be the New PMP exam Reference?
It seems, I'm not sure, that the reference for the new PMP Exam will continue to be the PMBOK 6th Edition, as the PMBOK 7th Edition is planned in the 2021-2Q.
If true, this is a great new, as at least processes explanations will remain the same. It means that we need add only Agile and Hybrid concepts to our training materials, following the Exam Content Outline 2019.
Does someone is more informed about the true publication of PMBOK 7th and its application on the PMP exam?
Thanks
Vito

The Seventh Edition of the PMBOK Guide is expected to be published sometime in early 2021 - no firm date has been announced by PMI yet.

The new PMP exam will still use the PMBOK Guide, Sixth Edition as a reference along with a number of other project management references. The full list is provided here: https://www.pmi.org/certifications/types/p...-reference-list

Please note that PMI is still collecting Expert opinions, Inustry feedback & survey results for the new format of PMP Exam. Well few spilled beans indicate that new format of PMP Exam would have questions not only from PMBOK 7 but also from additional books on Agile, SCRUM, KANBAN, KAIZEN, SIX SIGMA etc...

Dear Vito.
Interesting your question
If you listen carefully the webinars about the 7th edition of the PMBOK Guide you will get the answer to your question
See the link that was shared by Kiron
Equally or more important than the shared bibliography is the structure of the exams starting in 2021
