Opening the window to learning

A Project Management Competency Center (PMCC) was created by the Andersen Corporation, a wood window and patio door manufacturer, to address inconsistency in their information project management processes.The PMCC was based on the PMBOK® Guide principles and initially focused on the creation of an intranet site to educate project managers and foster a sense of community among them.Workshops were used to clarify project goals for each of the PMBOK® Guide processes (Initiating, Planning, Executing, Controlling, and Closing), and another workshop focused on a sixth process identified by Andersen: Project Manager Competencies.The PMCC effort went on to address intranet support, recruitment of champions, training, and coaching.This methodology has been used to train over 180 project managers.
