New APM webinar: PMO competences and career paths with the new APM Competence Framework

One of our team recently dialled in to this new webinar from APM delivered by Eileen Roden and Simon George.

The webinar shows you how the PMO function has been accounted for in the new framework and demonstrates how the framework:

  • Enables you to identify strengths and development needs to support your career progression
  • Provides you with clearly defined competences with outcome focused performance indicators
  • Can be used by PMOs and PMO professionals (source APM)

They had this to say after attending it – It was interesting to learn about the roles and responsibility within a PMO – I would very much like to work in a PMO, than be the project manager!

I wonder if everyone who attended has had that thought?

Interesting Quote

“Many of the things you can count, don’t count. Many of the things you can’t count, really count” – Albert Einstein

How very true this is, programmes and projects rarely report on the things that really matter, like benefits realisation and stakeholder satisfaction – Albert must have been thinking of MSP® when he wrote that!!
