Kindle edition of first APM Emerging Trends Guide available



5 August 2014 – London, UK – The Association for Project Management (APM) has announced that their first Emerging Trends guide is now available as a Kindle edition on Amazon. Introduction to Gamification was released earlier this year and was based on a collaboration between APM and the training provider ILX. The guide authored by APM’s Thames Valley study tour team offers an overview of the origins of game thinking and its application in the project environment.

The Kindle edition of Introduction to Gamification is specifically designed for e-reader devices, meaning the text is reflowable, not static, which greatly improves the user experience. For those who wish to access the guide for free, an epdf version is also available, this can be downloaded here.

The second guide in the Emerging Trends series has now been confirmed. Coaching in the Project Environment will look at the growing phenomenon of coaching project managers and project teams. Written by members of APM’s People SIG, it covers types of coaching, the differences between coaching and mentoring, and the case for coaching in project delivery. The new guide is currently in production and is expected to launch in September.
