Learning and development

  1. 1. Learning and development - a global charityThe client had already produced a framework for project management and felt ready toprovide learning and development for staff in this new approach. The learning anddevelopment was linked to an HR initiative to build a resource pool of skilled and trainedproject managers.Maven was asked to develop a competency assessment model to assess the staff and todevelop a training programme which reflected the model. As the client was a truly globalcharity we needed to agree the most relevant project management skill and competencesthat would apply across all of their offices. We reviewed models from the ProjectManagement Institute (PMI) and the International Association for Project Management(IPMA) and agreed on the IPMA framework. In their entirety these models ask too manyquestions and are too cumbersome to use, so we created a shorter version written in plainEnglish that could easily be applied globally.We created a range of training courses for the different project roles (project sponsors,project managers and team members) so that no time was wasted. Those working in aproject environment but not responsible for its management were given an overview of theproject management framework but were not given detailed training in project planning,risk management or change management as this was not part of their role. A morecomprehensive training course for project managers was put together but the entry criteriafor this course were controlled so that only genuine project managers with current orimminent projects were enrolled.The training programme has been rolled out globally and has been well received. We havenow supported this by creating a set of internal web pages that provide access to all of thecourse materials and project documentation and project management templates.Copyright © Maven Training Ltd 2011www.maventraining.co.uk І 020 7089 6161
