Pro­ject man­agers to send bill to N/Assem­bly

Daily Trust - - PROPERTY - By Mustapha Suleiman

Pro­ject man­age­ment ex­perts are fine tun­ing as­pects that would bring them recog­ni­tion as body of pro­fes­sion­als by way of pro­duc­ing a bill that will be for­warded to the 8th Na­tional Assem­bly soon.

Oluyemi Shonubi, MD/ CEO Sa­vant In­te­grated Con­cepts Ltd., a La­gos-based de­vel­op­ment man­age­ment, pro­ject and busi­ness ad­vi­sory ser­vices firm, who spoke on be­half of other board mem­bers of the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Pro­ject Man­age­ment Pro­fes­sion­als (NAPMP), said soon a na­tional pro­ject man­age­ment na­tional will hold in Novem­ber

She said pro­ject man­age­ment has to do with the idea of be­ing ac­count­able, pro­fes­sional and eth­i­cal, of do­ing things the right way, or fol­low­ing pre­scribed known skills us­ing method­olo­gies and tech­nol­ogy to achieve re­sults.

Shonubi said hun­dreds of mil­lions of naira val­ued projects re­mained aban­doned in Nige­ria due to poor ex­e­cu­tion, lack of over­sight , lack of qual­ity con­trol checks and pro­cure­ment ma­te­ri­als are sub­stan­dard hence the need for in­sti­tu­tion­alised pro­ject man­age­ment for ev­ery pro­ject.

She said a pro­ject is any en­deav­our that has a de­fined be­gin­ning and end and uses dif­fer­ent level of com­plex­ity, men, money and ma­te­ri­als to de­ter­mine its suc­cess al­beit within cost, bud­get and spec­i­fi­ca­tions.

Oluyemi Shonubi said a register would soon be es­tab­lished for mem­bers in­clud­ing a code of con­duct, an ethics and dis­ci­plinary com­mit­tee all aimed at usurp­ing the ac­tiv­i­ties of quacks in the pro­fes­sion.
