Project management skills are becoming ever more important to staff across the University who have responsibility for delivering change, and this is reflected in the increasing demand for the Practical Project Management course delivered by the PMO within IS Apps.  The course provides some insight into technical PM skills, however the PMO and the Learning and Development team in HR have identified that staff are also keen to understand what soft skills are needed to deliver project success, and how to gain these skills.  They would like to be able to access support when needed.

This project covers 3 key activities which we believe will help to meet these needs:-

  1. Demonstrate how the current staff development programme can deliver soft skills needed by project managers through linking the Association for Project Management competency framework to the relevant courses within the staff development programme and and to the University competency framework.
  2. Develop and deliver pilot masterclasses (targeted two hour sessions) in a couple of areas where staff have highlighted that they would like some support – Creating Successful Project Teams and Project Planning
  3. Establish a project management clinic or community of practice to support staff – focus to be on getting the project management message out to the University with regards to existing tools and support, sharing experiences, discussing areas of interest and providing a networking opportunity
