LOTF winner presents at TLF40

Dr Yacoub Petro, inaugural winner of our 2016 Capstone students project ‘Leaders of the Future’ competition, presented and lead discussion on his doctoral thesis and associated White Paper funded and published by Project Management Institute titled “Ambidexterity through Project Portfolio Management:  Resolving Paradoxes in Organizations” (2017).

Dr Petro explained that organizational ambidexterity is defined as the ability of an organization to simultaneously explore the market and the surrounding environment, exploiting their corporate knowledge and resources in order to improve performance and ensure sustainability.  The aim is to build on current strengths while responding to business challenges of a changing environment.   This can be done in an increasingly ‘projectified’ world by utilizing an ambidextrous approach to project portfolio management.

The White Paper is available at https://www.pmi.org/learning/library?ContentType=Published+Research&sortdefinition=PublicationDateDesc

Dr Petro’s presentation is available to view here Vienna TLF 40 Feb 2018 – The Four Dimensions of Success.

GAPPS and ICCPM to work on updating Complex PM Standards

Play an active role in the development of Complex Project Manager Standards!

This year, ICCPM is collaborating with GAPPS to review the Complex Project Manager Standards.  These standards are available to project/program mangers worldwide, outlining the competencies, paradigms (mindset), behaviour, knowledge and special attributes project managers need to operate effectively within the complex project environment.

GAPPS, The Global Alliance for the Project Professions, has for nearly 20 years been the gateway to the world of project management, writing performance based standards for project delivery and mapping various project standards for associations and governments.

As a member of the ICCPM community, we would like to invite you to attend this event, contributing your knowledge and ideas regarding Complex Projects to help review and develop these standards further.  You will also have the opportunity to hear from the experience of Senior CPM leaders and executives to learn from their many insights.
