Overview
Effective project management skills are becoming increasingly important. Organisations need good project managers, at all levels, to successfully deliver the change projects that will enable the business to adapt, grow and achieve its strategic objectives. The Association of Project Management APMP qualification allows delegates to demonstrate their knowledge of the various elements of project management and how projects fit into the strategic and commercial environment. APMP is recognised at IP
Prerequisites
    • This is an intensive five-day course and it is typical for delegates to undertake a minimum of 20 hours of preparation. Delegates are provided with access to QA's APMP eLearning. A self-assessment document is also provided that can be used to help focus your preparation more effectively.
    • Delegates who are registered PRINCE2® Practitioners may wish to look at our 'APMP for PRINCE2® Practitioners' course where a shorter route to APMP is possible.
    • This course is intended for practising, or possibly aspiring, project managers with a minimum of two years' experience in a project environment. This grounding is essential in order that attendees have a basic understanding of project management in order that theory can be applied to the workplace. Delegates who do not have this experience are encouraged to attend the QA APM Introductory Certificate course instead.
Objectives
    • Explain the internal and external contextual factors that influence the management and execution of projects
    • List and describe the key activities that are undertaken in each phase of a generic project life cycle: Concept, Definition, Development, Handover and closure
    • Explain the interpersonal skills that are practiced by the effective project manager
What's included
    • For courses held on our premises, complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits are available. Lunch is not provided, however, there is a wide variety of eateries within a short walk of the centre.
    • Comprehensive course materials and exercises
Course Content
    • Overview
      This highly interactive course covers the content of the APMP syllabus which is based on the APM Body of Knowledge, 6th Edition. The framework and tools that are covered provide a solid foundation for the successful delivery of a project, irrespective of industry sector.

      Delegates will explore these tools through a number of facilitated individual and group-based exercises, providing ample opportunity for sharing experience and learning throughout the class.

      In addition to the classroom sessions listed below, delegates will also be assigned evening work to help reinforce learning and prepare for the examination. The evening work is a key part of the course and may take approximately two hours to complete although some delegates may choose to extend this time.
    • Context and Governance
      The governance and setting of a project will heavily influence how it is managed. This section will cover topics such as:

      The difference between project and operational work
      Programme and portfolio management
      Project team roles
      The governance of a project across its life cycle
    • Concept Phase
      It is essential that the need for a project is identified and understood before its viability can then be judged. This may involve:

      Identifying and managing stakeholders
      Creating a business case
      Assessing project success and benefits
      Procuring resources and contract management
    • Definition Phase
      The definition phase is often where the project manager is most heavily involved and we look at a structured approach for planning the project - both in terms of what needs to be done and also how it will be done.

      Requirements and scope management
      Schedule and resource management
      Budgeting and cost management
    • Development Phase
      Putting the plan into action will require the project manager to undertake many of the following actions.

      Project control, including cost control through earned value management
      Manage information and reports
      Risk and issue management
      Health and safety
      Quality management
      Change control and configuration management
    • Managing the Team
      No project is successful without an engaged and committed team. This requires the project manager to utilise a number of interpersonal skills.

      Communication
      Conflict management
      Build and lead the team
    • Project Handover and Closure
      Formal closure of a project will help ensure that the deliverables are handed over in a structured manner and that the team and the organisation has reviewed and learned from the performance on the project.

      Project handover
      Project reviews
