BUCEC Introduces Project Management Competency Model
A major reason projects fail is that organizations typically think of project management as a science, not as an art, according to research from the Boston University Corporate Education Center (BUCEC). A new competency model developed by the BUCEC considers both the art and science of project management and could help boost the success rate for corporate projects by helping companies select and develop project managers, according to Mark Gould, BUCEC’s director of Management Development Programs. BUCEC has also developed a tool that can assess competencies in project managers and compare the results with the skills identified by the competency model.
