The UK Chapter provides regular meetings throughout the UK to catch up with and share knowledge of news and new developments. These are also opportunities for members to meet, to make new acquaintances and learn more about the project community in the UK, in different industries and across the world.
Industry Specific Competence and Organisational competence are not developed in this way in the PMCDF. The former refers to the abilities required of a project manager working in a particular enterprise and sector, while the latter – organisational competence refers to a project manager’s ability to understand organisational structures, culture and behaviour and to be equipped to ensure that the necessary social engagement and collaboration occurs.
Chapter 4 of the PMCDF offers advice, methods and formats for use in the development of project managers – individually and for a corporate programme.
