Praxis Framework™

Praxis is a free, community driven framework which can help you and your organisation realise the intended benefits of projects, programmes and portfolios – keeping stakeholders happy.

The Praxis Framework™ is a combination of four types of best practice guidance; Knowledge, Method, Competency and Capability and is the first framework to integrate projects, programmes and portfolios in a single guide.

Improving Project Management, Enabling Success:

  • An entirely free, open source framework. Available on the internet and subject only to a Creative Commons licence.

  • Praxis is an integrated framework encompassing knowledge, method, competency and a capability maturity model. As it uses a common taxonomy and terminology across all elements, there is no need for you to cross reference or translate between guides.

  • The Praxis Framework recognises one size does not fit all and can be easily tailored. Your organisation can insert their own process model, templates and content into the framework.

  • The framework is community driven, you can suggest improvements or extensions to any page and these will be considered for inclusion. Just use the comment function.

  • Supported by a wealth of free resources. An encyclopaedia of tools and techniques, templates, articles, a 360° capability maturity assessment tool, a glossary of project management terminology and much more is available on the Praxis website.

These features result in greater efficiency in the adoption and implementation of good practice – reducing training and operating costs and decreasing the time needed to develop and maintain an effective project delivery infrastructure.
