Our Project Management in the Public Sector training course has been designed for people working in the public sector who deliver projects as part of their job. Project delivery within the public sector brings several unique challenges. Benefits are often intangible, external pressures are particularly high, stakeholder groups are particularly wide and varied.

In this course we focus on both tangible and intangible benefits, people change, and what it means to use government frameworks such as the Green Book and five case model for business cases. You will also be introduced to the range of project management approaches including Prince2, Agile and IPA. The course syllabus is also aligned to the APM body of knowledge.
