Project Management at the highest level! Finished Project Excellence Assessment training

The IPMA Project Excellence Assessment training was held on 25-27th March 2024 at the 33rd IPMA World Congress venue, the huge DHL Stadium in Cape Town, South Africa.

The training was opened by the President of IPMA South Africa, Ben Peters, and led by experienced Team Lead Assessors, Pau Lian Staal-Ong from the Netherlands and Przemek Domanski from Poland. We started with the end in mind: an Assessment Report that brings value to a client/applicant and is considered a basis for the improvement of their projects. Participants and presenters represent different paths leading to this room at the stadium. From their experiences, education (although engineers predominated) to the languages they speak. From Swahili to Afrikaans. English is obvious, although, for a while, Dutch came in handy to explain one of the concepts. What was shared is a drive for project management excellence.

The walls filled up with results. We won’t go into details here, but we can say that we even reached the highest level in literal sense. We went to the roof of the stadium, climbed even higher up the steep stairs of the auditorium, and finally up the almost vertical ladder to the hole overhead and climbed to the roof of the stadium. Under the transparent covering, you can see the bleachers, the grass and the rugby goal posts below. The rule: only one person on each tile of the roof. As I continue to write this, alive, you can see that the group obediently followed this rule… As a result of the training, a new group of qualified Project Excellence assessors has emerged.

We all hope to meet again on our roads to project excellence and again at this stadium during the next 33rd IPMA World Congress – on 27-29th November 2024.
