2 Management Announcement: Due to Icelandic volcanic ash, the understudy for Eric Berg (John Cropper) will be playing two roles in today’s presentation. Any errors he might make are to be blamed directly on Eric or Vulcan, the Roman god of fire and volcanoes.

3 APM Group a proud sponsor PM4NGOs and the new PMD Pro Certification

4 Agenda Welcome and Introduction (Richard Pharro) Charting the Progress (John Cropper) Results of Pilots and Building Momentum (John Cropper in absence of Eric Berg) Exam Mechanisms (Leah Radstone) Training Opportunities with PMD Pro (Chris Cattaway) Q & A (All) Close

5 We can help NGOs “Most people that work for a charity are project managers. They manage many different types of projects, usually with limited training in professional project management concepts common in the commercial sector. After years of talking about developing exams for project management in the NGO/Non-profit industry, APMG is the first accreditation company to step up and do something about it.” Source: Eric Berg

6 We can help PMs working for NGOs People who hold professional qualifications and memberships increase the probability of being employed by 9 per cent. Those who hold professional qualifications earn 37% more on average than their colleagues who are not qualified Source: Consultative Committee for Professional Management Organizations (CCPMO)

7 Most importantly we can help people in need PM4NGOs was created in March 2007 by NGO practitioner members of LINGOs and interested members of the Project Management Institute. They believed that improving project management practices could have significant impact on the effectiveness of aid. A survey of the working group indicated that between them, they employed around 15,000 project managers with annual project budgets of $4.74bn. Hence (crudely), a 1% improvement in effectiveness would yield an additional $47m to spend on projects. The impact in terms of quality improvement would be even higher

8 We wouldn’t be here if:- Chris Cattaway hadn’t explained the scale of the challenge Eric Berg hadn’t pulled a team together John Cropper hadn’t provided technical input Mike Culligan hadn’t produced copious information My colleague Leah Radstone hadn’t managed our input All of us weren’t able to work in a true spirit of trust, cooperation and commitment

9 We wouldn’t have got this far without:- Support from many people drafting and reviewing questions People drafting and reviewing a relevant PM Body of Knowledge Training companies offering support and material Especially Steve Marks of Project Performance for their PRINCE2 CBT Ken Lane for introducing Chris to us

10 We wouldn’t know the scheme works without:- Pilots in South Africa by:- –PSI –Aidsportal –HIVOS –WITS Pilot in Zambia –World Vision
