Track: Project Management
In Project-Based Organizations (PBOs), projects, programs and portfolios are developed by professionals with different profiles and capabilities. These capabilities are composed of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques for management, such as influencing, motivating, listening and enabling. Properly allocating these capabilities in projects allows for achieving objectives, removing obstacles, better decision-making, increasing productivity and team focusing. In a complex project environment, for instance, megaprojects, understanding and managing these capabilities could be difficult. This research proposes a tool for managing individual project management capabilities and facilitating their availability and correct allocation. This tool is developed through ontologies which are high-abstraction models composed of classes and relations and computer-processable. IPMA Individual Competence Baseline for Project Management is a reference framework for capabilities extraction, description, standardization and mapping.
