Guide to Contracts & Procurement
APM Guide to Contracts and Procurement: For Project, Programme and Portfolio Managers offers a basic understanding of ‘how to’ procure sub-project works and to manage delivery through the phases of the procurement life cycle.
The guide breaks down the process of procurement of significant packages of work into individual stages. This enables the busy project manager to swiftly understand the key points required at the outset, or mid-flight, when corrective action may be needed.
Each stage includes an easy-to-follow flow diagram, including the necessary inputs and outputs.
Created by a panel of authors with hands-on experience, the guide is aimed at project professionals and stakeholders within organisations e.g. financial officers, who wish to increase their awareness of how sub-projects can be procured.
APM’s annual Salary and Market Trends Survey is the largest survey of its kind in the UK. This year’s survey, run in collaboration with Wellingtone Project Management, saw almost 5,000 project professionals, the highest number to date.
The aim of the survey
The survey allows APM to gain a better understanding of the profession, where there are skills gaps, how people are accessing the profession and the key characteristics of the project management role. The results also give an insight into the earning potential of project managers, where the highest salaries are paid and what roles are best paid in different industries.
Insights into the project management profession
This year showed high levels of confidence in the project management sector with over 60 per cent of respondents expecting a pay rise in the next 12 months, while 80 per cent claimed to be either satisfied or very satisfied in their current role.
