Greetings:

We are currently reviewing our project management organization structure and job titles within our function.  We are looking for well developed, mature project management structures that show career growth paths that include project, portfolio and program management.  Can you share your organization's PM hierarchy and roles/job descriptions with us for comparison?

Regards,
Kim

For what it's worth, "SFIA" the Skills Framework for the Information Age has some good text you can use in job descriptions for project, program, and portfolio management. Some of the text is about the types of work, and other text is about levels of work (e.g. what a senior person might do vs. a junior person). The framework is free to use internally.

Yours,

PS if anyone is interested, I wrote a short blog post last week trying to explain SFIA.




Hi all –

 

I adapted the SFIA approach to develop a Project Management Skills framework in 2012 (attached) and a set of underlying Position Descriptions.  Hope this is helpful.

 

Cheers,

wendy
