CMCS to host training programme for project managers

DUBAI, January 25, 2017

Collaboration Management & Control Solutions (CMCS), a leader in project management information systems, is set to conduct an executive training programme for project management offices (PMOs) in the UAE.

The move is in line with the UAE government’s announcement to launch a project for training and certifying over 500 public sector employees who are managing projects linked to the National Agenda and UAE Vision 2021, said a statement from CMCS.
It also complements Saudi Vision 2030 which has stated the need for PMOs across all government sectors, it stated.  

"Blueprint for Constructing your PMO" is a one-day course designed for operation managers, project managers, and PMOs which will be delivered by company founder and CEO Bassam Samman.

It is relevant for all sectors, including government, real estate development, aerospace, defence, oil and gas, power and water utility plants, financial services, and hospitality management, said the statement.

The first course will be held on February 12 at The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Resort and Marina in Dubai, UAE and on March 13 in Abu Dhabi.

It will cover the type of PMOs an organisation can build - including strategic, IT, engineering, construction, marketing, research and development (R&D), innovation, and legal - and how to construct and operate them.

The course material is aligned with the Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK) and fully applicable to other standards such as ISO 10006, ISO 21500 and Prince2.

On the new programme, Samman said: "The PMO has emerged as a vital business unit that takes the responsibility for project deliveries and is critical to the success of project management functions. All GCC governments have realised their value and, therefore, are actively investing to get their management team certified as project management professionals."

"PMOs need project management information system for real-time capturing of the projects, Big Data to enforce transparency, accountability and governance, and real-time single version of truth performance reporting. It not only enables project managers to capture lessons learned and knowledge gained from project delivery but also provide the means to achieve their strategic goals and desired vision," he stated.

According to him, the course comprises all the modules required for executives to sharpen their management skills and bring value to the organisations through consistent and efficient delivery of projects.

"The short course is aligned with the PMO Setup Request for Proposals (RFP) and will be of great value for organisations that issue the RFPs, bid for them, and implement their scope of work when awarded the project," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
