Developing your career as a project management professional requires a thorough understanding of numerous areas of business including budgeting, conflict management, negotiation and teamwork.
For professionals who seek to gain the practitioner qualification (APM PQ) as the next stage of their development as a project manager. Accredited by the Association for Project Management (APM), the PQ is an intermediate level qualification for people who can demonstrate an ability to manage non-complex projects or run a key control function of a large-scale project.
This is a 1 day training course in preparation for the APM PQ. Learners are expected to have at least 3 years' experience in responsible leadership functions of non-complex projects.
The day is spent looking at the APM PQ from a structural perspective to ensure individuals fully understand how they can give their best input to achieving a successful outcome.
The topic does not include the APM PQ assessment itself. This must be booked seperately.
What's the outcome?
Gaining your PQ will demonstrate your ability to make a positive contribution to any project you manage or are involved with. This will mean applying APM techniques to areas of project management as diverse as risk management, communication and procurement.
Through more widespread adoption of the APM approach, projects will be delivered in a more consistent fashion across your organisation.
What does it involve?
Some of the work is undertaken individually, including case study questions and an interview with the lead assessor. Other work is undertaken in groups of 3 or 4, discussing and solving case study problems over the course of the day.
