24. What is CPPATM Certification?

CPPATM Certification is awarded to individuals who meet ProjectRx's criteria for Program & Project Assessment (P&PA). The CPPATM designation recognizes that an individual has the knowledge, experience, and ability to effectively measure and assess project performance based upon a rigorous assessment framework. It acknowledges that these capabilities are not limited to a particular SME framework, but that it leverages the best practices from multiple leading SME frameworks, and a lot more.

25. Why is the CPPATM important?

The CPPATM offers a way for you to differentiate yourself from the rest of the crowd. The PMP® and PRINCE2® certifications recognize individuals who meet rigorous standards for managing projects. The CPPATM distinguishes an individual as being able to effectively measure and assess program and project performance utilizing tools and techniques from multiple leading SME frameworks, and much more.

 

The CPPATM ensures that you are able to effectively communicate project performance with project team members, Project Management Offices (PMOs), and Senior Management in a clear, concise, and objective manner using business terms. You will be better able to proactively mitigate delivery risks and avoid troubled projects.

26. What are the Requirements for the CPPATM?

Candidates for CPPATM Certification are required to

  • Complete the two (2) day P&PA course,
  • Pass the CPPATM Certification Exam, and
  • Prepare an Assessment Management Plan (AMP)

 

The CPPATM Exam and Assessment Management Plan (AMP) are completed as part of the optional Day 3. CPPATM Certification intended to be complementary to the PMP® and PRINCE2® certifications. CPPATM is a ProjectRx certification and is not affiliated with the Project Management Institute, Inc. or the Office of Government Commerce (UK).

27. Why is CPPATM Certification not offered by PMI, OGC, or ITGI?

The project management frameworks (i.e. PMBOK® and PRINCE2®) and assessment framework (i.e. COBIT®) available from PMI, OGC, and ITGI do not offer a comprehensive and balanced P&PA solution. They would therefore not offer assessment training capabilities based upon a robust P&PA framework like the one available with PROJECTRx®.

 

  • PMBOK® is an excellent project management framework. However, it contains a number of gaps relative to P&PA
  • PRINCE2® is an excellent project management framework, and it exceeds the P&PA capabilities of PMBOK® and COBIT®. However, the OGC does not intend to provide additional prescriptive detail
  • COBIT® is a well designed assessment framework. However, its focus is not on project management, and the ITGI does not intend to provide additional project management detail

 

With its comprehensive and balanced framework, PROJECTRx® is uniquely positioned to provide effective P&PA training and support, and thereby CPPATM certification. Refer to FAQs - Subject Matter Expert (SME) Support for additional details on individual SMEs.
