Projects and programs are not all the same. They have different levels of complexity and therefore offer different challenges.
The GAPPS has therefore developed frameworks for assessing and rating the relative complexity of projects and programs. These can be used as a basis for categorizing projects and programs and for determining and matching the level of competence required to lead and manage them. They can also be used to plan paths for experiential development of project and program based competence.
