What is the Praxis Framework?
Praxis is an entirely free, community driven, open source framework which can help organisations realise the intended benefits of projects, programmes and portfolios. The Praxis Framework™ is a combination of four types of best practice guidance; Knowledge, Method, Competency and Capability and is the first framework to integrate projects, programmes and portfolios in a single guide.
What are the benefits of Praxis?
Praxis is available on the Internet, making it easily accessible.
The Praxis Framework recognises one size does not fit all and can be easily tailored. Organisations can insert their own process model, templates and content into the framework.
The framework is community driven, users can suggest improvements or extensions to any page and these will be considered for inclusion.
Praxis is supported by a wealth of free resources. An encyclopaedia of tools and techniques, templates, articles, a 360° capability maturity assessment tool, a glossary of project management terminology and much more is available on the Praxis website.
Praxis Framework Certifications
Enhance your knowledge, ensure you are using the framework effectively or simply assess your capability with the Praxis Certifications. The certifications currently available are:
• Foundation: Praxis Foundation equips you with an understanding of project and programme functions – in addition to the processes and documentation used to manage lifecycle phases. Foundation enables you to work effectively as part of any project or programme management team. It is a pre-requisite for the Practitioner qualification.
• Practitioner: Praxis Practitioner builds on the understanding developed at Foundation level, providing you with the knowledge to apply and tailor Praxis to your organisation’s projects or programmes.
• Bridging Course: The Bridging Course is for those who have previously undertaken project and programme training and would prefer to use a more integrated framework going forward. The course covers the similarities and differences between Praxis and other prominent frameworks; PRINCE2 and MSP – as well as the APM qualifications, PFQ and PMQ.
