APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) Will Help You To Succeed In Your Project Management Career
Our 5-day APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) training course will provide you with everything that you need in order to achieve the APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ).
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.
Purple Griffon will help you to build on your existing knowledge, introduce you to concepts of Project Management and understand the structure of a project.
APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) is an internationally recognised qualification, which can be carried from one job to another, or from one industry to another.
The key objectives of the APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) course are:
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
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
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
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
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.
Build and lead the team
Project Handover and Closure
