The APM Body of Knowledge 7th Edition provides a base resource for understanding and advancing professional project management. It is a reflection of a growing field and acknowledges the importance of project-based work for leaders, decision makers and influencers at every level, and across all sectors.

Project Management software is designed to support the project scheduling, planning, tracking and delivery of processes. It has features such as Gantt charts, Kanban boards, a real-time dashboard for time tracking, and collaboration tools that help project managers manage tasks, projects and individuals.

Stakeholders in a project are typically divided into secondary and primary stakeholders. Primary stakeholders are the main decision makers who are actively involved in the project and exercise huge influence over its results. Secondary stakeholders might be present at meetings or play some part in the project, but don’t have any influence.

There are a variety of project management techniques. Some of the most well-known include lean and agile methodologies as well as heuristics, critical chain and project management. The PRINCE2 method is an example of structured project management. It divides the project in seven processes: Directing an entire project, starting up the Project, Creating the Project, Managing Product Boundaries, Controlling the Stage and Managing Product Delivery, and closing a project.
