    Whats New?

    At Balance Global we think the new Praxis Framework and accompanying qualifications could be a bit of a ‘game changer’ and ultimately even a contender to the ‘throne’ of the world of the Best Practice Project / Programme Management qualifications (think PRINCE2 / MSP / P30) that have dominated for quite a while.

    There are quite a number of reasons behind our making such a bold statement, including:

    • Instead of ‘obsessing’ about distinguishing between Projects, Programmes and Portfolios the Praxis framework takes a very pragmatic approach and covers all three (P3) on the basis that they are very similar, requiring similar skills, lifecycle and management approaches.
    • Taking a P3 approach means that professionals in this space do not need to take a multitude of different qualificationsand purchase many expensive manuals. Praxis ‘joins up’ between the different P3 ‘levels and provides a unified common language.
    • It’s community driven – in effect a ‘Wikipedia’ for P3 management! This means that it has the potential to gradually and continuously evolve rather than requiring a major ‘refresh’ project every few years.
    • It’s ‘open source’ – so free to use, and you can even use / access the Praxis Framework website during the (‘open book’) practitioner exam. No need to actually purchase the book (although there is one available should you want to get it).
    • Praxis covers 4 primary aspects that all link together seamlessly – a Body of Knowledge (similar to APM / PMI), a method (similar to PRINCE2 / MSP), a competency framework AND a maturity capability assessment model (similar to P3M3). It really is a complete offering.
    • It is the only qualification at the moment to fully cover the new UK Government ‘Functional Standard in Project Delivery’.
    • Although the Praxis framework includes a focus on continuous improvement there is no requirement to re-register or retake the same examination every 3 – 5 years. Better to keep learning new things and contribute to the Praxis Framework community through reading, discussion and sharing learnings / experiences.
    • The body of knowledge is broad and includes inter-personal skills, such as leadership, negotiation, conflict management and even a bit on change management in addition to what maybe considered the more traditional aspects such as business justification, planning and risk/issue management.
    • Cost! The examinations are going to be very competitive when compared to the alternatives, especially when you bear in mind the breadth of what is covered by Praxis.
    • Templates provided by ‘project in a box’, in addition to an encylopedia and comprehensive glossary

    The Praxis framework and web site emerged in 2012 and is going from strength to strength. It has already been translated into several languages and more are planned. Foundation and Practitioner examinations have been developed and are available from Jan 2018

    Praxis focuses on:

    project management || programme management || organizational change || stakeholder engagement || business transition || benefits management

    Perfecting projects, programmes and portfolios.

    Fully optimise all aspects of project, programme and portfolio delivery with the free, community driven Praxis Framework.

    Combining the four pillars of effective project delivery; Knowledge, Method, Competency and Capability – Praxis is the first framework to integrate projects, programmes and portfolios into a single guide.

    By covering the full breadth of guidance needed for effective project management within a single framework – Praxis is the most efficient means of delivering projects and programmes.

    Course sections include:

    Introduction to Praxis and Lifecycle Management

    Integrative Management Functions

    Delivery Functions

    Interpersonal Skills

    A common concern with eLearning is that you will be un-supported as a learner.  With our courses this is not so.  Not only will you be able to see questions asked by previous learners through subject forums, but you will be able to directly message the trainer if you are stuck or don’t understand something.

    Trainers will respond to your question(s) within 24 hours, but usually much quicker.

    Furthermore, our courses use multi-media and have been carefully designed to cater for different learning styles, preferences and abilities:

    • Visual Learners – our courses are visually engaging, with many diagrams and images to illustrate and highlight key points
    • Auditory Learners – our courses contain clear audio, delivered by subject specialists rather than actors, which we find helps ensure that emphasis is placed on the most important aspects
    • kinesthetic Learners – our courses have many test questions and inter-active exercises embedded within them to aid those who learn best through practising what they have learnt
    • Course Accessibility – if you have a hearing impairment, or need to turn the audio off a full transcripts are available within our courses

    Some benefits of eLearning include:

    • Learning can occur at a time and place to suit you – around your work commitments and lifestyle
    • You can repeat the course units, exercises and tests as many times as you like, until you are confident
    • It is often cheaper than classroom courses, and there are no travelling costs!
    • Associated exams can also be taken at home, on-line at a time to suit you using the PeopleCert Proctor service.

    Although this option does not include the official foundation exam, here is some information about it in case you wish to upgrade later.

    tick Examination Methods & Bookings

    Don’t feel nervous about the exam process. Our comprehensive eLearning course covers the exam syllabus in full and we will also provide you with exam hints and tips. Furthermore, we (unlike many competitors) pay extra for the premium remote proctoring service. With this Proctoring service you will be personally guided through the on-line exam process rather than having your exam being recorded and watched by an invigilator later. This means there are fewer opportunities for your exam to be disqualified because of inadvertent mistakes with in the exam process itself.
