Whitepaper: IPMA with PM2 Group to support the public administration in building up the competences
Whitepaper title: Supporting the management of public sector projects through the partnership between IPMA and the PM² Group making use of the European PM² methodology and more
In a special White Paper prepared by Dr Reinhard Wagner, Dr Mladen Vukomanović, and Laurent Kummer, we show the synergies between the International Project Management Association (IPMA) and the PM² GROUP, which lie primarily in the combination of the PM² methodology of the European Commission with the competence-based approach of the IPMA.
In view of the increasing number and complexity of societal challenges, public administration is coming under significant pressure to professionally implement necessary projects. Due to the different nature of previous work in administration, projects and its management are still unique and require a systematic competence development. Therefore, IPMA and PM² Group have formed a partnership to support the public administration in building up this competence. In doing so, the PM² methodology of the European Commission is being used, along with other assets of the partners for the benefit of the public administration. After introductory remarks, the strategic advantages of the partnership for the various target groups are outlined, as well as the synergies between the product and service portfolios of the two organizations and how these advantages can be exploited in practice. After a conclusion, an outlook into the future is also ventured as to what could result from the partnership.
