About the course

Praxis Framework APMG Logo

Praxis Framework™ is a combination of four types of best practice guidance; Knowledge, Method, Competency and Capability and is the first framework to integrate projects, programmes and portfolios in a single guide.

Whilst Praxis has been available online as a free, community driven framework since 2014, it now forms the basis for a new, all encompassing qualification, designed to save you and your organisation time and money.

How?
– by covering all the key areas and removing repetition, Praxis combines the value of three project and programme management introductory certifications into one, and;
– by realising the intended benefits of projects, programmes and portfolios and keeping stakeholders happy.

Praxis is the only best practice guide that supports all the elements of the UK Government’s Project Delivery Standard.

These features result in greater efficiency in the adoption and implementation of good practice – reducing training and operating costs and decreasing the time needed to develop and maintain an effective project delivery infrastructure.

Benefits – organisation?

Praxis is an integrated framework encompassing knowledge, method, competency and a capability maturity model. As it uses a common taxonomy and terminology across all elements, there is no need for you to cross reference or translate between guides.

The framework also recognises that one size does not fit all and can be easily tailored as it allows organisations to insert their own process model, templates and content into the framework.
