The Project Management Body of Knowledge 7th Edition

The APM Body of Knowledge 7th Edition provides a foundational resource for understanding and developing professional project management. It is a reflection of the profession’s growth and recognizes the importance of a project-based approach at all levels and across all industries for decision makers, influencers and leaders, as well as their teams.

Project Management software is designed to aid in the project planning, scheduling, tracking and delivery of processes. It comes with features like Gantt charts, Kanban boards, a real-time dashboard time tracking, as well as collaboration tools that help project managers manage projects, tasks and people.

Stakeholders typically fall into two categories which are secondary and primary stakeholders. Primary stakeholders are the main decision makers who are actively involved in a project and have huge influence over its results. Secondary stakeholders may attend meetings or take only a small role in the project but do not have any influence.

There are many different kinds of project management methodologies. Some of the most popular include agile and lean approaches, heuristics, and critical chain project management. The PRINCE2 method is a perfect example of structured project management. It divides the project into seven phases: directing a Project, Starting Up a Project, Initiating a Project, Managing Product Boundaries, Controlling an Event, Managing Product Delivery and Closing a Project.
