7) I am PRINCE2 qualified. Why should I take APM qualifications?

APM qualifications recognise the broad underpinning professional skills required to manage any project successfully. Any software, method or project management tool requires a trained, skilled professional to use it to be successful. APM qualifications recognise professionals capable of assessing their project environment, selecting the right tools for the project they are working on and managing the complexities of communication, interpersonal and management skills, as well as the process aspects of managing projects.

PRINCE2 practitioners who wish to take the APMP qualification are able to take an adapted course which recognises the knowledge gained from the PRINCE2 qualification.
