ICCPM understands that to improve the performance of complex projects, training individuals is important, but building effective teams and supporting them with the right governance and processes is critical to project success.
Communities of Practice (CoP) play an important role in developing individual skills, building effective teams and working together to ensure the operating environment supports project success. A CoP can support peer learning and peer feedback. They can be used to develop shared understanding and trust between members, and establish the behaviours and communication channels essential for monitoring and responding to complexity in projects. If you would like to lead or join a CoP, please contact ICCPM Director, Industry Liaison and Member Services Dr Naomi Mathers at email@example.com
ICCPM is pleased to be working with a number of our Corporate Partners to establish CoPs. In some instances these CoP are helping a project team implement the tools and frameworks covered in the Certificate IV in Responding to Organisational Complexity, in other cases ICCPM is helping the Corporate Partner explore a particular issues facing the organisation.
Corporate Partners can use their Elective Benefits to support an internal CoP or bring together key stakeholders to explore issues generating complexity in an industry. In environments of high innovation, multiple partners and different cultures, such a Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs), CoPs are an effective way of building shared understanding and effective communication in support of improved project delivery.
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are a way for Individual Members to come together virtually around a theme to share experiences, exchange information and learn from each other. ICCPM has received communication from members who are interested in participating in a SIG so we are putting a call out to the community to identify potential Chairs and members.
Please read the Terms of Reference and Code of Conduct for SIGs placed below.
Possible topics for SIGs include:
- Future Project Management Workforce
- Governance of Complex Projects and Programs
- Risk and Opportunity in Complex Projects
- Harnessing Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
- Among other possible topics
ICCPM Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are dedicated to discussing and learning more about a variety of topics in complex project management. They provide a conducive environment for ICCPM Members to come together virtually to share their expertise and experiences, and learn from one another. SIGs are also dedicated to contributing to the growing body of knowledge in complex project management.
With an active ICCPM Membership, you can observe the discussions within a SIG. Additionally, you can apply to join a SIG where you can participate in the discussions, or become a moderator of your own SIG and communicate using a forum. The ICCPM SIG webpage is coming soon. Please contact us if you have any questions.
