The training course “Advanced Project Management – Professional Education” provides a comprehensive body of knowledge on the state of art for Project management and Project-oriented Organizations. It is based on the International Project Management Association (IPMA) standards and the National Austrian Member Association “Projekt Management Austria” Standards, which are also adopted as National Hellenic Standards by the Hellenic Member Association “PM-Greece”.
The main focus is on the International Competence Baseline (ICB– ver4.0) Standard and the National Austrian pm baseline (PMB- ver4.0) Standard, which covers the crucial elements of the project management competence. These elements are divided into three main areas: Practice, People, and Perspective.
In the fourteen (14) first elements are described the essential technical project management competencies. These elements form the basis of what good project management is. A project manager who has a good command of the major part of these techniques is in position to structure a project soundly and to maintain this structure for the duration of the project. This is an important condition for success but is not enough.
Then are covered ten (10) behavior elements which accomplish a connection between technique and social behavior. The last five (5) elements cover the connection between the temporary project organization and the permanent organization which operates by projects. A project manager needs a certain amount of general management knowledge.
