Overview

NEW! Praxis Framework Foundation Course with Exam

Established in 1994, Balance Global was one of the first 3 training companies to be approved in the UK by the UK Cabinet Office to deliver PRINCE2® Accredited Courses.

One of our values is to provide good ‘take-away’ value. By this we mean that we don’t just want to teach theory or chalk up exam passes. We want delegates to be able to go back to their workplace and implement what they have learnt straight away and really make a difference. This is why we offer a range of templates, and after-care service and consultancy to help clients tailor PRINCE2® and embed it within their working practices.

We are the the first ATO in the UK to launch this new Project /Programme Management qualification.

Why not take a look at our reviews on TrustSpot (Google Trustspot Balance Global) we have an excellent 4.6 stars out of 5.

Description

NEW! Praxis Framework Foundation Course with Exam

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
