Identifying professionals in project organisations
Project management professionalism is growing – globally and exponentially! With increasing complexity and the constant pressure of delivery within organisations, the public, private, academic and other sectors need to ensure that they have individuals that are leading and managing their project based organisation as efficiently and effectively as possible. To do so they need to have people that are professional in the way they handle clients, opportunities, and above all else, themselves – what does your organisation have,
gifted amateurs or professionals?Organisations need to make sure that professionals (at the appropriate level) are leading their projects and maximizing the probability of success. Without recognizing the need to identify the right individuals and harnessing their capability, an organisation will simply not survive. What mechanisms are available, therefore, to identify professionals? What are the tools professionals should be using to advance their standing and improve internal (and external) organisational structures? And how should organisations measure professionalism and champion a suitable professionalism agenda from within?
The workshop is suitable for delegates who are responsible for leading others and/or involved in management/consulting on the topic of professionalism within organisations. It is also suitable for individuals seeking to develop their career, understand how professionalism might affect their own future careers and explore how they might champion/coach and mentor future professionals.
