AXELOS to maximise profits in PRINCE2 and other best practice products

The formation of AXELOS as a joint venture between Capita and the Cabinet Office to manage project management qualification such as  PRINCE2®, and ITIL®.

Capita has committed to pay £10m as an up front payment and then £9.4m per year over the next three years. This is a huge shift from the APMG Group which while a profit making organisation always seemed to trace it’s culture back to the days when it was the trading arm of the Association for Project Management.
