PRINCE2® update and APM qualifications
Featuring talks from RSM Director, Nigel Bennett and Head of Professional Standards at APM, Gill Hancock, this joint Wessex and Thames Valley APM branch event will begin with the 2017 update of PRINCE2® - a structured project management method and certification programme for practitioners in the methodology.
As one of the authors of the updated model, Nigel will describe first-hand how the update was managed and provide an overview of the main changes over the 2009 edition, as well as changes to the foundation and practitioner exams.
The second half of the evening, delivered by Gill, will provide an overview of the APM qualification suite, exploring the range of qualifications developed by APM, their core values, assessment criteria, learning outcomes, training models and how they benefit the progressive structure for career development.
Both talks will include a brief overview of the changes and updates to qualifications through collaboration with the AXELOS membership scheme.
The 2017 update of PRINCE2® was officially launched in June 2017 and is available to purchase now.
