Presentation title:

Using PMCDF to Become a Better Project Manager
(knowing where you are, and how to get where you want to be)

Project Management Institute (PMI) uses three dimensions to define what is considered a "competent project manager": knowledge, performance and personal competencies. While a project manager's knowledge can be demonstrated by obtaining the PMP or equivalent certification, assessing the performance and personal competencies is much more difficult.
PMI addresses this gap with the Project Manager Competency Development Framework (PMCDF), now at the Second Edition. It includes not only a clear definition of competencies required of project managers, but also examples of evidence to demonstrate them as well as a process to assess and improve individual competency level.
This presentation will demonstrate how PMCDF can be used by any Project Manager to improve their own capabilities, and apply them within an organizational context to increase the likelihood for project success. The goal is to assist the participants in:
 Understanding required competencies and how to assess them.
 Learning how to improve their competencies in project management.
 Adjusting the framework to organization particularities.
