The Project Management Body of Knowledge 7th Edition

The APM Body of Knowledge 7th Edition is a resource that provides a solid basis to understand and develop a professional approach to project management. It reflects the evolving field and recognizes the importance of a project-based approach at all levels and across all sectors for decision makers, influencers leaders, and their teams.

Project management software is designed to aid in planning scheduling, tracking and planning. It offers features such as Gantt charts, Kanban boards, a live dashboard time tracking, as well as collaboration tools that help project managers manage projects, tasks and their people.

Stakeholders are usually divided into two groups which are secondary and primary stakeholders. Primary stakeholders are the main decision makers who actively participate in the project and have an enormous influence on the outcome. Secondary stakeholders may attend meetings or take a small part in the project, but they don’t have much influence.

There are various types of project-management methodologies. Lean and agile methods are among the most sought-after. Heuristics and critical chain project management as well as lean and agile methods are also extremely popular. The PRINCE2 methodology is a good example of a systematic project management method. It divides the project in seven steps: Leading the Project, Creating a Project, Initiating the Project, Managing Product Boundaries, Managing an Event, Managing Product Delivery and Closing a Project.
