The participant receives their standard five-page PMA6 report based on the results of their own assessment and a nine-page 360 feedback report.
Benefits of PMA360
The benefits to a participant include structured and objective feedback by a range of colleagues on performance and development priorities. This helps to foster an open and supportive development culture within a project management community.
The benefits to the organisation include validated assessment of competence and key areas for development both individually and collectively.
The PMA360 process
Assessments are completed by a participant and by at least one reviewer, preferably up to four. The participant PMA360 takes up to 90 minutes to complete and the reviewer PMA360 takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
For each of 16 project management competence areas, e.g. business case, leadership, risk management etc., the reviewer is asked three questions:
1) Participant’s competence level on a scale of zero to five or not able to rate
2) Evidence observed in the form of comments about the participant’s competence
3) Priority for the participant’s development in the competence (low, medium, high or not able to rate)
