Developing a great Project Team

Portfolio, Project & Programme Management means different things to different people. Delivering change effectively time & time again needs effective Project Managers & Programme Managers with effective PMO support that understand not only the Project Management process but how to apply it. Many Project Managers have already completed PRINCE 2 or MSP training as part of their development.  Although this means that they will have a common understanding on what makes a project it's the specialist management skills that really increase their ability to deliver.

Programme Recruitment have developed a Knowledge Evaluation for Portfolio Managers, Project Managers and Programme Managers to provide an objective view of the knowledge profile for roles in the Portfolio Management Office or Programme & Project Management environments.  The Knowledge Evaluation covers the appropriate elements from the APM Body of Knowledge (version 5), OGC Project/Programme Management approach and OGC Portfolio Office Management.

The questions are divided into the five key stages of project management:

  • Initiation
  • Planning
  • Methods
  • People
  • Control

By analysis of these results, and comparing them to previous profiles gathered over a number of years, the Knowledge Profile enables us to understand the strengths, development needs and experience of candidates and provide the right person for your role.  We can also evaluate your current team and highlight skills, knowledge and development priorities as part of our services.

This unique project management and programme management evaluation has proved to help with personal achievement, as well as improving your chances of success at interview. Whether you’re having trouble interviewing, securing the right role or you're just interested in personal development.

  • Take it as a pre-cursor to the APM, Prince2 or MSP qualification - find areas to recap terminology.
  • Assess whether you have project management or programme management capability - there can be confusion surrounding roles when organisations use titles inaccurately, which are you?
  • An impartial perspective of your current position - where are you now and where would you like to be?
