With this collaboration, the Graduate School becomes a premier provider of the award-winning Stanford Advanced Project Management (SAPM) program, with a focus on government and its multi-sector workforce. A worldwide leader in professional education and development, the School offers a strong project management curriculum that supports the needs of individuals and organizations in the government, private and nonprofit sectors.
The SAPM program brings a unique learning opportunity designed to enable leaders and managers to more effectively implement programs and projects, often complex in nature, in the conduct of their organizational mission. SAPM builds upon the fundamental project management methodologies covered by the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). By completing six program courses, participants earn the recognized credential of Stanford Certified Project Manager (SCPM), today’s premier advanced project management professional credential. More than 8,500 professionals have attended program courses, and nearly 2,500 program graduates have earned their SCPM credentials.
“We are very enthusiastic about making this outstanding program available to our constituents across the government,” said Graduate School CEO Dr. Jerry Ice. “SAPM represents the highest level of advanced project management education available today, from one of the world’s most prestigious academic institutions.”
“This is an outstanding opportunity for government and related employees to get increased access to advanced education in the important disciplines of executing strategy, managing complex programs, leading change efforts and improving organization performance,” said Dr. Ray Levitt, Academic Director of the SAPM Program and Professor of Engineering at Stanford University.
Courses will be conducted live in the Graduate School’s Washington, D.C. classrooms, located in the Capital Gallery near the L’Enfant Plaza Metro. Offerings include Converting Strategy into Action, Mastering the Project Portfolio, Leadership for Strategic Execution, and other advanced project management topics.
