PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAMME
Project Managers are the people in charge of a specific project or projects within a company or a government entity and any small or large scale development project requires high quality project management skills. The need for a qualification that will serve as a competency framework for the development of project managers is identified by a number of key government strategic frameworks and policy documents. Project Managers however can work in a variety of fields, from Information and Communication Technology, Human Resources, Advertising, Marketing, Construction and more.
Improved service delivery and economic growth in South Africa are dependent on the quality of project management skills available in the country. Project management is a cross-cutting function, needed in all social and economic sectors.
This qualification presents a competency framework appropriate for South African contexts and was developed and closely benchmarked against international standards. It establishes a national standard for the training of fully qualified Project Managers and is closely aligned with international best practice.
