Successful project management takes more than skilled individuals. It takes individuals, teams, and organizations all working together to achieve excellence. In this groundbreaking book, J. Davidson Frame—who directed the project management certification program for the Project Management Institute (PMI), the world's premier project management organization—describes the individual, team, and organizational competencies necessary for overall competitiveness. He provides methods for increasing skills in each area and tools to help organizations assess whether they're being achieved. Individual project managers will learn the key traits they need to excel in their field. They will read about the best ways to strengthen their skills through a variety of channels, including formal education, on-the-job training, and self-instruction. And they will assess their mastery in eight crucial areas using a multiple-choice test based on PMI's Project Management Body of Knowledge, the bible of project-related knowledge.Senior managers, executives, and CEOs will learn about different types of teams, why they are so important to today's businesses, and how to gauge their effectiveness. They will discover the seven most important characteristics of project-based organizations. And they will be given checklists and scoring sheets to evaluate how well their organization is enabling its individuals and teams to do their jobs. Project management has become the dominant way of getting things done in all kinds of businesses because it gives companies the ability to put staff and resources where they're needed, the flexibility to change direction quickly, and the means to monitor costs and schedules more closely. Project Management Competence is the best way to increase project management effectiveness because it gives readers the ability to build and measure project-related strengths at every level of the organization.
