It is also updated to match the latest BS 6079 standard for project management in construction.

  • Focused on the needs and challenges of project managers in engineering, manufacturing and construction, and closely aligned to the content of the APM and PMI 'bodies of knowledge'.
  • Structured according to the logical sequence of a major project, with a strong focus on planning, scheduling, budgeting, and control-critical elements in the management of engineering projects.
  • Includes project management questions and answers, compiled by a former APM exam assessor, to help you test your knowledge and prepare for professional examinations.
