About the Praxis Framework

Praxis is a free framework for the management of projects, programmes and portfolios (3P). Where other project management standards choose to focus on one or two aspects of 3P expertise the Praxis Framework includes a body of knowledge, methodology, competency framework and capability maturity model.

See the Video introduction to the Praxis Framework.

This is all interlinked into one framework saving you lots of cross referencing work of trying to link the recognised standards yourself.  Praxis is compatible with many other guides such as PRINCE2®, the APM Body of Knowledge and ISO21500.  We have been looking for sometime to provide our users with a method aligned to the APM’s PMBoK and with the Praxis method we are delighted we can now support a whole new set of PM professionals with a method that will be familiar to them.

Projects, programmes and portfolios need to be managed in different ways depending upon their context. Praxis has a  highly modular and flexible structure enables Praxis to be tailored to suit any context.  In developing Method Templates for use in PROJECT in a box we have identified some common starting points for typical project and programme complexities as follows:

  • Low complexity projects (launch version)
  • Complex projects (coming soon)
  • Projects with Agile (coming soon)
  • Praxis for programmes (coming soon)

Each of these starting point include guidance on how users might tailor the project once created to deal with more or less complex contexts.

Authentic materials and guidance

The Praxis Method Templates we are producing are based on an unprecedented level of access to the Praxis material.  You get the official diagrams and graphics.  Also extensive links back from the method and templates to live guidance material on the praxis website.

A full set of templates have also been prepared especially for you.  Your templates are all branded and containing the recommended headings for document sections and links to further guidance.  If used in PIAB commercial products the template QA sections will also auto fill with key project properties.

Praxis News

Although the framework is already polished and complete, there is still work going on to extend it into new areas.  So we would advise you to keep coming back here or to the Praxis website for updates.  Praxis Framework is now also available as a book published by the APM – see more information on the APM website .
