AXELOS launches global Academia initiative to promote the value of best practice in higher education.

axelos-collaboration-globalAXELOS, a portfolio and project management company, has launched a new global initiative to improve collaboration between academia, students and commercial organizations, enhancing knowledge and development of best practice across IT Service Management (ITSM), Project and Program Management (PPM) and Cyber Resilience.

AXELOS is working with higher education institutes (HEIs) and their students from the across the world, providing a platform to discuss how incorporating best practice methodologies into academic syllabi can increase employability and close the skills gap.

“Our aim is to foster a community of interested stakeholders and promote discussion and debate around how best practice is leveraged in academia,” said Philip Hearsum, AXELOS ITSM Portfolio Manager. “As owners of the Global Best Practice portfolio, we want to support both HEIs and students on their journey, and make sure graduates enter the job market with up-to-date skills, giving them a real competitive advantage.”
