As this month's theme is global projects, I thought I'd share with you this video about PRINCE2 and The PMBOK® Guide. When you work with people from different countries, especially across the Atlantic divide, you'll often find that they gravitate to one or the other way of working. As this video shows, the two approaches are equally valid and work well together. So that's one less international conflict to have to worry about when working on projects across borders.
APM Group have launched their earned value qualification. Apparently, there is enough of a market demand for the exam. In the current economic climate, earned value is under the spotlight and APMG believe that this qualification will help. Sponsors will be able to identify if the project is delivering the value expected and track budget and financial measures. Project managers also gain by being able to measure and monitor more effectively, ensuring the project delivers the best possible value for the company.
