Competence Enablers

Our Competence Enabler (CE) program is a member service for savvy Project Management solution Vendors and convenience for our members and visitors.

We call them Competence Enablers because they are aligned with our focus on PM Skills, Behavioral Attributes, and Competence development. Competence Enablers can help their clients to move beyond simple knowledge-based emphasis on Project Manager development.* 


What Is a Competence Enabler?

Competence Enabler

A Competence Enabler is a Project Management products or services vendor who understands the difference between basic PM Knowledge, and the Skills, Behavioral Attributes, and Competences needed to achieve consistent project performance. Competence Enablers have access to the IPMA Individual Competence Baseline (ICB4), that identifies the minimum target levels of needed Knowledge, Skills, Behavioral Attributes, and Competences needed to fill each level of IPMA's Four-Level Competence-Based Project Manager Certification Program.

If you are a Competence Enabler, you can identify how your products, consulting services, and training programs help support the success factors that today's Project Manager and key project stakeholders need most. That includes the foundation of technical, contextual, and behavioral competencies that are essential for career development, advanced Project Manager Certifications, and the project/program success factors that individuals or Enterprises need, not just to succeed, but to excel.
