Project Management Career Development Model
In today’s constantly changing work environment, project management professionals need to reinvent the way they think about and manage their careers. Traditional approaches to career development proved to be anachronistic based on what organizations need from their associates.
Organizations are adopting a new approach: the alignment of projects with the organization’s strategy, which will use projects as enablers to achieve organizational goals. To achieve this project management professionals need to acquire the next generation of PM skills (Triangle of Talent) and ensure their contributions will benefit the organization. Organizations are finding most project management professionals know what they need to do to perform well in their current jobs but very few are clear about what is required over the longer term.
The proposed Project Management Career Development Model will enable project management professionals to become opinion leaders and the go-to people in their field of expertise.
