Project management is the application of processes, methods, knowledge, skills and experience to achieve the project objectives. Projects are the vehicles of change in an organisation. They are not the repetitive business-as-usual type of activity.

APM Competence Framework
The APM Competence Framework sets out the competences required for effective project, programme, portfolio management and project management office (PMO).
The framework consists of 29 competences based around outcomes that project professionals need to achieve.
Each competence includes a series of criteria covering knowledge and the application and a ratings scale.

This may be attributed to the sponsor’s role being hard to define and lacking traction in the boardroom.
