AXELOS, the organisation behind methodologies such as PRINCE2, has launched a new career planning tool to support project and program managers identify and achieve their career aspirations.
Career Paths can be used by individuals, recruiters and organisations to explore typical job roles within project management. Built using AXELOS Best Practice Frameworks, Career Paths identifies the skills and qualifications needed within different roles to support career progression.
For those wanting to find out more about potential careers in project management, Career Paths is an ideal starting point to explore a wide range of roles and access guidance on how to pursue a chosen career.
Individuals who have already embarked on their project management career can use the tool to understand how their current skills fit into the Best Practice and how they can position themselves in the marketplace.
“The best practice community drives new developments and Career Paths is no different,” said John Tomlinson, Head of Communities at AXELOS. “We want practitioners to share their experiences and expertise to ensure that this tool is reflective of career paths in the industry and is useful for organisations offering, and individuals pursuing, career opportunities.”
This beta version is being released to the community for feedback to support future developments, including the release of an IT Service Management and Cyber Resilience version of Career Paths.
“As Career Paths develops, our aim is to map all relevant qualifications available against the different job roles in these industries, making this the ‘go to’ resource for career planning, skills development and best practice,” he added.
