So a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to catch up with Deb Hein, the CEO of the International Centre for Complex Project Management. I sat with Deb for an interview on ICCPM as an organisation, how she sees the world of complex project management and dealing with organisational complexity.
In the interview we discussed Deb’s background and what brought her to ICCPM, how ICCPM was formed and where its role is in the global context, how complexity is becoming better understood and where the field is going into the future.
ICCPM can be found at https://iccpm.com where you can find information on the organisation, its history, some of its major achievements and initiatives.
I have been big fan and admirer of the work of ICCPM for some time, and was fortunate enough to have an article included in their magazine a few months ago talking about leading virtual teams in complex projects.
On the ICCPM website you will also find information on its key educational offerings, including the Certificate IV in Responding to Organisational Complexity . The course, which is exclusive to ICCPM and recognised by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), provides an excellent hands on qualification that takes students through the steps of:
- Identifying and understanding complexity in their organisations
- Making decisions in complex environments
- Managing risk in complex environments and,
- Leading through complexity.
The course has been running for a little over a year at the time of writing this and the first students are starting to graduate.
