Training needs analysis

Description

Measure the capability of your project professionals and identify their collective strengths and identify areas for project management training and development.  

Our consultative approach with stakeholder interviews, the leading online assessment tools, and optional one to one interviews, will help your organisation to:

Focus your scarce project management training resources on the right topics and the right project managers and staff

Achieve higher success rates on project management qualification based courses (e.g. APM, PRINCE2 or PMI)  by directing your project mangers and staff to the most appropriate level

Our approach

Having agreed the goal and scope of the project management training needs analysis with you, we first review the role profiles and other information of the project professionals.  Key stakeholder interviews will be conducted in parallel with the deployment of our leading project management online assessment tool PMA6.  Detailed analysis of the data and one to one interviews will enable you to be informed on:

Collective strengths and weaknesses in programme and project management knowledge

Proposed programmme and project management training and development options with a schedule of recommended names of project professionals for each option

How your project professionals compare to others in industry and to industry standards

As a leading accredited training organisation we can also support your organisation in the design and delivery of training for programme and project professionals.

Capability planning

Description

Capability planning involves high stakes assessments  techniques which will eventually have an influence over the career development options in the widest sense of project management staff. We work with you to confirm your objectives and agree the best approach for the number of project staff involved and the depth of assessment necessary.  Our well proven approach aims to support your organisation in answering capability and capacity questions regarding your project management staff, such as:

What are the levels of capability of our project managers?Are these sufficient in quality and quantity to meet our projects needs?

Our approach

Provek is able to assess the capability of your project management staff against international benchmarked standards and compare it to the needs of your projects.  This is achieved through the deployment of two or more assessment techniques, an analysis of the organisation's project landscape, and the analysis and reporting of the results, including their benchmarking against the International Project Management Association's (IPMA) four levels of project manager.

We have used the following assessment techniques in high stakes assessments:

PMA6 - leading online project management assessment tool, deployed to over 10,000 project management staff

Scored CV - unique capture of project delivery experience deployed to over 1,000 project managers

Structured interviews - competence based interviews led by a senior consultant

Assessment centres - standard or bespoke events based around a project scenario

In addition, we have developed an approach for capturing the project landscape of an organisation, i.e. the key dimensions of the existing and upcoming projects.

Recruitment

Description

Improve your recruitment process with independent rigorous online assessment against international project management standards.

Approach

Often used as part of the sifting process ahead of first or second interview, our PMA6 and Scored CV assessment techniques will provide you with the information you need to select the best candidates.

We work with your HR administrators to provide a seamless experience for your candidates and a fast turnaround of results.  Each candidate is awarded an overall grade based on their results across the two assessments.
