These new inclusions within the framework highlights their importance within the project landscape today and APM’s commitment to supporting the profession to adapt and thrive in a changing environment. Furthermore, the 3rd edition also welcomes greater alignment to the APM Body of Knowledge 7th edition.
The enhanced self-assessment tool enables users to highlight vital growth areas. Providing the ability to self-assess and improve professional performance and identify areas of strengths and any skills gaps. The competence tool also allows members to benchmark themselves across other project roles.
Professor Adam Boddison, chief executive of APM, recently said:

We are really excited to be launching our new Competence Framework assessment tool and to see the value it will bring in improving skills and development for those delivering projects. It is going to be valuable for anyone working in projects who is keen to measure and improve their skill set at any level.”
