Book: Competence


In today’s environment, success in delivering projects is not based on a company having the best delivery framework or a project having the best plan or risk log, but rather on the skills of the people who are planning, managing and delivering on the work of that project. It is no longer sufficient to just have fundamental project management skills; resources also need to possess an augmented set of “soft” or consultative skills. This book focuses on the evolving competencies needed for project managers in the current environment. It proposes a framework called the “Consultative Project Management Competency Model” which outlines 25 essential competencies. Each competency is described with examples and proficiency differentiation for levels of experience. This book also defines a holistic approach for improving project management competencies of individuals or an entire organization.
