Project Management for International Development.
Axelrod, Valija M.; Magisos, Joel H.
A project developed a content model for international project management training. It also compiled a bibliography of project management references, identified specific project management training needs based upon a survey of international sponsors and contractor personnel, and documented the training needs of international project managers. Data were collected through a literature review, survey of international sponsoring agencies and contractor organizations, and interviews with individuals from agencies and organizations. The Project Management Institute taxonomy, as published in 1983, was used as the initial content framework of the model. Nine areas in which training was needed were included in the model: scope management, time management, cost management, quality management, human resources management, communications management, cultural management, procurement management, and legal requirements management. Major training needs in each area were identified. Project manager supervisors felt that the most effective means of providing training was through a modularized set of competency-based materials and that new project managers would benefit from customized training programs.
