The Seventh Programme

Topic: International Project Management for Top Executives: Training in the Context of Belt and Road (BRI) Projects

This short course will cover the latest concepts in international project management. It will take a Board and CEO perspective of projects and explore how to govern projects to deliver strategic benefits. All theory will be presented in the context of China's Belt and Road (BRI) projects. The objective of the course is to train participants to be able to engage with clients at the most senior levels and be more successful at delivering projects which result in lasting economic value for client countries.

The course content is based on the 6Q Governance™ framework. This framework was developed from 19 years of academic research on how Boards and senior managers have governed projects to succeed (or fail). The content will also build on the latest competency framework produced by the International Project Management Association (IPMA ICB4).

Target Participants

The target participants for this course are top executives of organisations. Participants are expected to come from China and BRI client countries (SE Asia, Pacific, Africa, Middle East, Europe, etc.).
