AFA

Description

AFA’s ethos is to work with client organisations, retaining existing robust processes and further developing them in line with Best Practice guidance. Training events are often tailored to suit the current level of understanding within an organisation; a pathway of progression can be offered to allow understanding and skills to develop and grow.In summary: AFA tailors services to suit the client rather than relying on a set of ‘products’ & AFA focuses on the Best Practice methods rather than dabbling in many methodologies or offering a wide and disjointed range of training topics.

History

AFA was established fifteen years ago as a management consultancy organisation. In 1996 AFA became one of the original group of PRINCE2® Accredited Training Organisations under the scheme administered by APM Group on behalf of the Office of Government Commerce. AFA quickly established a reputation for being able to deliver training courses that combine excellent exam pass rates with realistic and practical guidance ensuring maximum skills transfer.

Advantages of studying here

AFA trainers and consultants have served on the editing and review teams for all recent updates of the guidance manuals. Several AFA trainers are examiners or assessors for one or more of the methodologies. AFA was represented on the review panel for the PRINCE2:2009 refresh and piloted the corresponding examinations. The chapter ‘Tailoring PRINCE2’ which forms an integral part of the PRINCE2:2009 guidance is adapted from the OGC publication, ‘Tailoring PRINCE2’ which was written by AFA’s managing director, Alan Ferguson.

Areas of specialisation

AFA continues to specialise in the Best Practice methods, becoming accredited at the earliest possible opportunity to deliver training in: PRINCE2® Project Management, MSP® programme management, M_o_R® risk management, MoP® Portfolio Management and P3O® portfolio, programme and project support offices. More recently, further training strands have been added to the AFA offering: Change Management – accredited by the APM Group, Benefits Management – developed from experience of MSP training & implementation, Managing Benefits – accredited by the APM Group, Practical Project Management – helping you to deliver the right projects and programmes, APM Qualifications – APM Introductory Certificate and APMP & Agile Project Management - accredited by the APM Group. We believe that this unique combination of expertise allows us to help organisations to maximise the benefits of their change initiatives.
