Strategy Execution's Project Manager Competency Model

Project Manager Competency Model and PM360

In 2006, Strategy Execution developed a Project Manager Competency Model and launched its PM360™ tool. This was developed in order to help clients measure and benchmark the soft skill competencies and behaviours of their project managers, against the Project Manager Competency Model - from a true 360° perspective.

How is this true 360° perspective achieved?

Individuals rate themselves in the 6 Competency Areas and 40 individual behaviours. This "self-rating" is then measured against and compared with, the views of key internal stakeholder groups – Sponsors, Line Managers, Team Members. You can then see whether this key group apply equal importance to these competencies and behaviours, and whether they perceive the same level of application.
