APM Body of Knowledge Approved publications are titles specifically selected by the project profession as providing essential next-steps in the understanding of topics, contained with the APM Body of Knowledge 6th edition. The titles can support students in their studies, provide insight for those new to the discipline and offer further depth to experienced professionals looking to improve their practice.
Rekha Thawrani, general manager for NEC, said: Were proud to announce this new partnership with the Association for Project Management. The main objective of this relationship is to stimulate good project management across the industry, promote collaborative working and effective risk allocation.
