Project management standard is launched in China
The PRINCE2 examination body, the APM Group (APMG), is planning to open an office China later this year in preparation for the first ever Chinese PRINCE2 exams.
PRINCE2 is designed to be a written description of how to manage a project in a logical way and is owned by the UK Office of Government Commerce (OGC). China Machine Press began publishing the Chinese version of the PRINCE2 manual in November 2004 and to date has sold 2400 copies.
"It is a great achievement by the OGC to have created one of the world's most recognised business standards, which has been embraced by so many countries," said Richard Pharro, managing director of PRINCE2 examiners APMG. "Naturally we are delighted that China has decided to join the PRINCE2 community and we hope to have the first candidates for Foundation and Practitioner exams this year."
APMG say there are already tens of thousands of people around the world who are fully qualified as PRINCE2 Practitioners. In the last 12 months over 25,000 people have taken either the PRINCE2 Foundation or Practitioner Examinations.
To train candidates there are now more than 72 Accredited Training Organisations registered in eight different countries. Between them they employ 250 Approved Trainers. APMG is currently working with training and consulting company IPM Partners in China to help set-up the initial representation of APMG in the Chinese market. APMG report interest from several prospective training companies to deliver the training required.
APMG's office is expected to open in May 2005 in Qingdao and in June 2005, APMG's chairman, Alan Harpham, will give a keynote address at the Construction Project Management Conference in Beijing.
