Some important characteristics of Praxis

1. The name of the framework viz. Praxis, is a word that can be used in English for example:

 

  • Practice, as distinguished from theory.
    "modern political praxis is now thoroughly permeated with a productivist ethos"
  • Accepted practice or custom.
    "patterns of Christian praxis in Church and society"

 

2. The Praxis framework is intended to distinguish itself from theoretical approaches.  Key to the framework’s embedding is the senior level acceptance of its structure followed by incremental implementation in practical steps over a period of time.

 

3. The Praxis Framework is a digital, open-source framework for the management of projects, programmes and portfolios in any environment.

 

4. Praxis is far more than a methodology for managing projects.  Praxis brings together a body of knowledge, methodologies, competence frameworks and capability maturity models in a single integrated framework with a single structure and defined terminology. There’s no longer need for mapping and translation between different guides.

 

5. The framework is supported by a knowledgebase of resources and an encyclopaedia.  This information is accessible online through a well-structured user interface.

 

6. Included on the Praxis framework website, are some exceptional examples explaining how Praxis could be used for a portfolio, a programme and a project.

 

7. Most project, programme and portfolio management guides are updated by panels of experts every few years. The aim with Praxis is to update and extend the framework and library on a continuous basis. As our users provide adaptations and lessons learned, they will incorporate these into the framework.

 

8. The Praxis course will equip you with all the pertinent skills that can otherwise only be acquired by attending multiple five-day courses and further training in interpersonal skills.

 

9. There is no such thing as a typical project, programme or portfolio, and Praxis is not prescriptive in the way its components are applied. The framework is designed to provide building blocks that can be tailored and assembled to suit different contexts.

 

10. Praxis builds on the essentials of other guides like PRINCE2®, MSP®, MoP®, P3O® and interpersonal skills (among others) thus enabling professionals with these accreditations to feel comfortable while acquiring the more embracing Praxis skills.

 

11. Another definition:   Praxis (from Ancient Greek: πρᾶξις, translit. práxis) is the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, embodied, or realized.  "Praxis" may also refer to the act of engaging, applying, exercising, realising, or practicing ideas.
