Q. PMI's Pulse of the Profession 2014 identifies people as one of the three strategic drivers for organizational sucess. What can companies in India do to sharpen ?
A. "To help global managers scale up, organizations can help in the following ways:
Cross cultural training: In a culture of globalism where virtual meetings are the norm, these trainings help build “seamlessly functional” cross- cultural teams.
Compliance trainings: These help ensure compliance to program/projects and reduce PMO overheads.
Talent assessment: These help bring out the areas that need working upon to improve project management and leadership skills.
Innovation/entrepreneurship: Innovation contests, entrepreneurship opportunities (own and manage
outcomes) would help in bringing out their technical and strategic talents.
Inter-personal skills: These distinguish a successful project manager from a great project manager.
Team performance assessment: Companies need to come up with innovative assessment strategies on how teams achieved success and the individuals’ contribution to that achievement as a measure of individual performance.
In an increasing agile world, organizational support would go a long way in helping project managers transform and scale into multi-faceted resources."
