In a country where many recent failures have occurred due to misfunctioning boards of directors and councils, the PMI South Africa Chapter is launching a new career development program to develop project managers towards improved corporate governance. As PMI has 11 global standards and particularly Project and Portfolio Management, as well as the Talent Triangle, study of appropriate sections of these can provide excellent background and competencies for those members who want to be efficient directors. If you have 6-10 hours per month to participate in this 10-month pilot program in 2019, please send in your application by 7th March 2019.
The program, starting with a workshop on 16th March 2019 in Gauteng, is the latest offering available exclusively to members of the PMI South Africa Chapter. Participants will form small self-directed study groups of 4 to ten members each in which they will study the models of governance and other legislative and voluntary requirements and models for directors and boards. At program completion, successful participants who want more knowledge will be encouraged to attend formal courses from other training providers to qualify as Professional Directors or Executives in Corporate and Public environments. Members from the public who want to participate are welcome once they have become members of the PMI and the SA Chapter (See PMI website on how to apply for PMI Membership – https://www.pmi.org/membership/join). Simultaneously of becoming a member of PMI, you can join the South Africa Chapter.
