International Project Management Association (IPMA)

Dr. Al-Turfi, Sadeq

The IPMA is the oldest project management institution in the world, established in 1965 by the Federation of Professional National Associations (Xue et al., 2014). The IPMA Competence Baseline version 3 (ICB3) is represented in the 46 competence elements shown in Figure 2.5. These elements are grouped into three ranges of related competence elements (IPMA, 2006), as follows:

·           Technical competence contains 20 elements which deal with the project management matters on which the professionals are working;

·           Behavioural competence includes 15 elements that deal with the personal relationships between the individuals and groups managed in the projects, programmes and portfolios;

·           Contextual competence contains 11 elements which cover how project managers deal with the interaction of the project team within the context of the project and with the permanent organisation.

As defined by the ICB3 standard,

 “a competence is a collection of knowledge, personal attitudes, skills and relevant experience needed to be successful in a certain function” (ibid, p. 9). The technical competences can be considered part of human resource management, including project organisation, teamwork, problem resolution, project structures, and resources. In a similar manner, technical competences are considered as forms of communication management that control and report information and documentation, and communication with interested parties (IPMA, 2006). 

 

Figure 2.5 The Eye of Competence ICB3 (IPMA, 2006, p. 2)

 

The Eye of Competence represents the integration of all the components of project management as seen through the eyes of the project manager when assessing a specific situation. The eye represents clarity and vision (APM, 2006).
