PMBOK Guide 5th Edition is released now. Even though new edition of the book is out, PMI is still following the PMBOK Guide 4th edition for the PMP exam until July 31, 2013. All PMP training and study guide providers are in the process of updating their materials for upcoming change. New versions of the PMP 35 Contact Hour Trainings will be available sometime in June. But if you are preparing for the PMP exam now, it is highly recommended that you take it before July 31st using PMBOK Guide 4th Edition. This will give you access to a lot of PMP Exam lessons learned and other study aids.

The PMBOK 5th Edition includes changes to Inputs, Tools, Techniques and Outputs (ITTO). Activity Cost Estimates and Risk Register are two Inputs beefing up the Estimate Activity Resources process. Brainstorming and Delphi Technique are two of the facilitation techniques added to the Develop Project Charter process. Perform Integrated Change Control gets a new set of Change Control Tools, while Direct and Manager Project Execution gets Meetings. The new Plan Scope Management process comes with its own new Output: the Scope Management Plan.I would say that a PMP Certification is highly respected within both IT & non-IT communities where strong project management skills are required. If you plan on a long term career as a project manager, then yes, even with your level of experience, I would suggest getting your PMP. You can prepare yourself for the exam in one of the PMP trainingproviders like www.pmstudy.com/. You can do minimal prep-work to get 40 PMI® Contact Hours and apply to PMI for PMP Exam before the class begins.

It will definitely ease your work of handling a big project. As a project manager I use scrum in my projects. One of my friends referred me to use the Guide to Scrum Body of Knowledge by scrumstudy.com. I like the concepts of sprints, daily standup meetings, etc. the SBOK Helped me alot in Understanding how Agile Project Management works.
