This 3-day event will take place in Kuta, Bali, on February 5, 6, and 7. (See below for a detailed itinerary).
For those not familiar with the Global Alliance for Project Performance Standards, we are an Australian based, globally recognized NOT FOR PROFIT professional organization, dedicated to creating COMPETENCY standards for project and program managers which are INDEPENDENT of any single body of knowledge, methodology or organization.
We have also made these standards available to the public domain for countries like India, China, and Indonesia. under ?open source? under?open source? or?creative Commons? License, which means that anyone can download them and use them at no cost. (See page 2 of the standards for the copyright agreement) .
GAPPS’s work is supported by Motorola and Shell Oil, American Express and NASA Academy. Over the past 10 years, several top ASEAN practitioners from Indonesia have been involved in the development of these standards and their availability at no cost. .
We hope that Asian academics, practitioners and companies, as well as NGO’s, professional organizations, and government representatives, particularly those from developing countries, will attend this 3-day workshop.
