IPMA International Project Management Association

IPMA Project Excellence Assessment Training a great success!

“The assessor training was a great experience. Had the privilege to work with a hugely experienced group of project professionals in the room. Great deep dive into the Project Excellence Model. And great insights into project assessment. Highly recommended!”

Last week the new three-day Project Excellence Assessment training was launched, promoting the use of the IPMA Project Excellence Baseline® in organisations. The IPMA PEB contains the Project Excellence Model and is a guideline for implementing an excellence (continuous improvement) culture in organisations. Major focus of the training is on one of the benefits for organisations, namely the Feedback Report. This report is delivered by an international assessment team to organisations participating in the IPMA Project Excellence Award, and contains a description of strengths and areas for improvement in each of the 9 criteria of the Project Excellence Model in the areas of People & Purpose, Processes & Resources and Project Results.

25 experienced and enthusiastic senior professionals, with different backgrounds and from 13 countries participated in the training, resulting in great and interesting discussions. They not only experienced applying the IPMA PEM but also learned all aspects of the Project Excellence Award process and responsibilities as assessor and Team Lead Assessor.

“As Project Manager I continuously look for ways to improve my team members as well as myself. This was one of the reasons to sign up for the IPMA Project Excellence Assessment training. Learning the IPMA Project Excellence model inside and out and how to apply it will help me to achieve a higher level of excellence in my own projects. Participating in this training with project management professionals from other countries and other disciplines, and therefore sharing project management experiences, makes it even more valuable. I hope to be able to apply this knowledge and my experiences in a PE Award assessment in the future, helping and learning from others. The action learning training itself, where we experienced the PE assessment starting with the end result was an intense and informative experience. And it was fun, with two excellent trainers to guide us through the model and assessment process.”
