Project Management in the African Context

| Tuesday, 27 November 2012

PMExchange Zimbabwe

The 3rd Edition of the Project Management Exchange (PME) was held in Harare, Zimbabwe, on the 19th July 2012, encouraging interaction, discussion and collaboration in the project management community.

One of PM.Ideas’ goals is to develop project management competency in Africa, and we were keen to get involved in this conference, with the theme of ‘Adding Value through Project Management in the African Context.’

Karin Deacon (PMP®, Prince 2 Practitioner), Co-Founder of PM.Ideas, spoke about ‘Good Projects vs Bad Projects’ with an emphasis on business ethics, ethical project management and professional responsibility. This topic was well received by the delegates, who acknowledge that success in project management is empty if it is not underpinned by core values such as responsibility, respect, fairness and honesty.

Other topics included ‘Projects in Africa’, ‘Overcoming Barriers to Project Management Mainstreaming’ and ‘Adding Value through Project Management in the African Context’. All discussions were engaging and thought-provoking.

The panel discussions were very interactive and offered delegates a chance to engage with the speakers in various lines of business (ICT, Industrial/Mining, and International Development) and share experiences in the project management world.

Overall, we found the conference to be incredibly well organised, with stimulating topics led by passionate professionals. We were proud to be involved in this event, and look forward to assisting in the development of Project Management throughout Africa.
