Practitioner Competency

“Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates. There’s plenty of movement, but you never know if it’s going to be forward, backwards, or sideways.” H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

How well are your project managers performing? Can they do better? Do you have a defined career path and professional development plan for everybody working on projects?

We have the experience to help you assess the current levels of practitioner capability and competency, and provide a clear way forward for appropriate professional development.

Practitioner Capability & Competency Review

This review assesses the competency of individual project management practitioners across all levels, from project administrators, to project managers, programme managers and portfolio managers. We use our bespoke tool which is aligned with international best practice in this area and it is based on the Project Manager Competency Development Framework (PMCDF) and the Talent Triangle from the Project Management Institute (PMI). It uses both a self-assessment and a peer assessment to give a complete picture of a practitioners current levels of competency. The tool can also be used as part of the recruitment process to ensure you are bringing on the best people.

It gives great insights into the strengths and weaknesses of your people and contributes to your overall talent management strategy. Using this review we can provide individual and personalized recommendations for professional development.
