PRINCE2® project management methodology trainers, ILX, have responded to the news that project managers are being recruited in West African organisations to employ more efficient fund saving methods.

The West African Project Programme and the Portfolio Management Association have pressed to see that West African Governments recruit skilled project managers to provide more effective financial management. Speaking at a news conference in Nigerian capital, Abuja, the West African Project Management Applied Scholarship Scheme (WAPMASS) identified aspects of current projects that could potentially be improved to substantially reduce financial waste. Expenditure on projects is apparently quite similar among neighbouring countries also and better project management, as is found in more developed nations, can provide better results.

The WAPMASS explained that they have aspirations to raise West African project management to an international standard and perhaps even surpass current leaders in project management in the future. WAPMASS acknowledges that project management in West Africa is administered in a way that costs more than in more developed countries and aims to improve the quality and cost effectiveness of their practices.

A spokesperson for leading provider of project management training company, ILX, has commented on the news:

‘Part of being successful for any organisation is knowing which areas you should be investing in and in which areas you should be saving. There are plenty of opportunities for cutting back costs, and good project management should be able to identify those areas. But if you don’t invest in good project management you are unable to identify the most cost effective procedures and processes.

‘For West African organisations to attain a global standard of project management, they will require global standard training, much like the training provided by ILX. Our internationally recognized project management methodology can highlight project components that are perhaps not as efficient as they should be.’
