GAAP is targeting to coordinate Government & Academic outreach efforts throughout all the countries, providing guidance and full support to local Chapters to establish contacts with their national entities and to propose an European vision to the proposed collaboration scheme.
Expand awareness of the value of project management and PM maturity in Europe, in particular in Government and Academic Institutions.
Play the role of driver of change and innovation within the Public sector in all European countries.
Sustainably build and grow PMI® Chapters' communities and link them with the key actors of the Public Sector.
Support the project management discipline in the public sector via practitioner career development in Project, Program and Portfolio Management.
Help Government and Academic Institutions to afford the challenges they are facing in managing their small, medium and large projects.
Drive the change to innovation and digitalization of Public Sector in Europe.
Increase the number (and quality) of PM's coming from the Public Sector (institution and Companies) in the PMI® Chapters' community.
Successfully promote PMI® brand across Europe and in the Public Sector.
Key Performance Indicators
Number of countries, institutions and universities involved/active in the program after 1 and 2 years.
A couple of Volunteers to coordinate and manage the GAAP, and one GAAP Liaison for each Chapter involved.
Sense of Urgency
Collaboration with Government and Academic institutions is a key success factor for the growth of any Chapter.
To coordinate efforts throughout European Chapters, considering that most Public Administrations in the various countries have similar challenges and goals.
And that they are coordinated at EU level by a common Administration (e.g. Eurostat for National Statistic Authorities).
They can benefit by the experience done by other Chapters, in a similar way to the Corporate Ambassador Program already under deployment throughout Europe.
Establishing and maintain contacts with Government / Public Administrations & Universities has been always a big challenge for any Chapter.
