Developing your career as a project management professional requires a thorough understanding of numerous areas of business including budgeting, conflict management, negotiation and teamwork. This course is for those that already hold a valid Prince2® certificate.
Accredited by the Association for Project Management (APM), this topic will help you to understand how those elements interact with each other.
Ideally suited to project managers with at least two years' experience, this topic equips you to participate in projects ranging from individual assignments through to large projects.
This topic only covers those components of the APM Body of Knowledge syllabus which are not covered within PRINCE2®. It is intended solely for project managers who hold a current PRINCE2® practitioner qualification and who have at least 2 years' project experience.
The learning activities within this topic are designed to help you understand the management structures by which projects operate and to give you the confidence to apply them to your own projects. You will become familiar with the APM concepts, processes and vocabulary. By focusing on critical areas such as cost management and stakeholder management, you will expand your project management capability beyond what you learned for your PRINCE2® qualification.
What's the outcome?
Having gained your APM PMQ, you should be able to apply what you have learned to make a positive contribution to any project you're involved in.
Through more widespread adoption of the APM approach, projects will be delivered in a more consistent fashion across your organisation. This will result in more projects being successfully delivered in line with expectations of time, cost and quality.
What does it involve?
This course is delivered by a 3-day workshop which takes you through all the relevant components of the APM syllabus. There is some preparatory reading which will take about 10-15 hours to complete.
During the workshop, an additional 2-3 hours of study per evening – in the shape of further reading and mock exam questions – will be required.
This is a 2 hour closed book exam. Learners will need to complete 6 essay based questions (from a selection of 10) and achieve a score of 55% in order to pass.
Further details such as the syllabus, candidate guidance notes and a sample paper may be found from the APM web-site.
