What does the Software Project Director Certification cover?

Software project management is a discipline of project management that specifically focuses on software development. Software projects are planned, implemented, monitored and controlled throughout the software development process which will emphasise the product aspect, rather than the technical aspect.

Software usually addresses business needs and many software development processes can be run in a similar way to general project management processes, however the evolution of the Agile Project Management methodology has made managing software projects easier.

  • Work through both PRINCE2® Foundation & Practitioner, including the start-up and initiation of a project, right through to the directing and closing of one.
  • Gain insight into some of the pivotal themes encased by PRINCE2®, including organisation, risk management, quality control and configuration management strategy.
  • Learn how to manage successful programmes with the Foundation & Practitioner level MSP® syllabus, including the core concepts that make up the framework, how to build a blueprint from the vision statement, the use of tranches and the importance of quality and risk management when trying to reach objectives as planned.
  • Understand the Agile project management framework, its concepts and how they are applied in business, from how to plan and run a facilitated workshop to how to create timeboxed plans to ensure projects stay on track. Cover all areas, including the importance of negotiation and collaboration with stakeholders, and how to recruit the most suitable project teams.
