FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE APM PROJECT MANAGEMENT QUALIFICATION
Find out if the APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) is right for you.
APM PMQ is a knowledge-based qualification. It enables you to demonstrate knowledge of all elements of project management.
You'll be able to demonstrate an understanding of how these elements interact and how your project fits into your strategic and commercial environment.
What will the APM Management course cover?
Key Managements Units
You will learn what makes a project, develop your knowledge of the project life-cycle, explore organisational structure and look at the environmental factors that can come in to play throughout the process.
Managing people and applying the necessary project processes are key factors in leading a project. You will look at how leadership can help to shape a project. The team building and motivational techniques you can use to do this successfully, look at ways to manage conflict that may arise during the project life cycle and delve into the art of negotiation.
You will look at the approach to project initiation including development of the business case, scoping out of projects, identifying the needs of project stakeholders and putting in place measures to control the changes that may occur during a project.
We all know the old adage ‘fail to plan, plan to fail’ and most studies find that poor planning is primarily at fault for project failure. Making sure you get this right, schedule your resources correctly and have a clear communication plan to share with stakeholders are all important areas of study in this module.
Having the ability to oversee a project and having the ability to manage change as and when it occurs are important to ensuring project delivery. By looking at monitoring and reviewing projects, procurement needs, understanding risks and getting to grips with quality management you will develop a toolbox to help you deliver projects effectively.
