“Complex Project Management is defined as the lifecycle delivery of emergent strategic outcomes through projects which are usually adaptive system of systems; have high uncertainty in scope definition; are distributed; have ongoing environmental and internal turbulence; are implemented through wave planning; and are unable to be decomposed to elements with clearly defined boundaries.

Complex Project Management not only delivers organisations the capability to project manage highly complex projects in pluralist environments, but just as importantly, it delivers a strategic capability to organisations and governments in the management of their ongoing businesses. These Complex Project Manager Competency Standards lay the foundation for project management to effectively deal with complex projects, and in doing so, to add real value to our world. They recognise that complex projects require additional competencies to those required for traditional projects. In particular, these Standards provide a framework that can be used not only to develop the full potential of emerging project managers, but also to provide a higher level of competence to which existing project managers can aspire.”1.

This year ICCPM has been collaborating with GAPPS to review the Complex Project Manager Competency Standards of which ICCPM is the proud sole custodian.  These standards are available to project/program mangers worldwide, outlining the competencies, paradigms (mindset), behaviour, knowledge and special attributes project managers need to operate effectively within the complex project environment.

So far the review process has been held in: Sydney, Australia; Vienna, Austria; Delft, The Netherlands; Dempasar, Bali; and Gyor, Hungry.

More on information on the Review can be found here.

PLEASE JOIN US to contribute your knowledge and ideas regarding Complex Projects to help review and develop these standards further. You will also have the opportunity to hear from the experience of Senior CPM leaders and executives to learn from their many insights.

Numbers will be limited to ensure a productive consultation process.Senior project managers, HR professionals, and people with expertise in complexity and the development of project management standards, are encouraged to participate.
GAPPS, The Global Alliance for the Project Professions, has for nearly 20 years been the gateway to the world of project management, writing performance based standards for project delivery and mapping various project standards for associations and governments.  To find out more about GAPPS click here.
