APMG International PPS Online

Overview

In today’s modern world, organisations are continually changing, reviewing and updating their capabilities. Implementing new strategies and initiatives will typically be delivered by targeted programmes and/or projects. These programmes and projects require a champion and sponsor to be accountable for successful delivery.

The Programme and Project Sponsorship course has been developed to provide a clear understanding of what is required of the Programme and Project Sponsor. Not only does it address the key question, ‘what should I be doing?’, but also, ‘what is an appropriate level of my involvement?’, and ‘what should others be doing for me?’.

Please be advised that the accrediting body APMG will be withdrawing the PPS examination for new candidates as of 1 September 2019. The PPS scheme will continue to be available but they are removing the examination element.

This programme has been designed for anyone who is sponsoring or is about to become the sponsor of, and accountable for, a change programme or project. This programme is applicable to any organisation wishing to ensure that their business change leaders have a comprehensive understanding of their roles and responsibilities. It would be particularly relevant to:

  • Senior responsible owners
  • Project sponsors
  • Project executives
  • Programme directors
  • Departmental directors
