IPMA training at Lagant: the 'flipped classroom' method

In many training courses, the teacher is the leader of the lesson, the focus of attention and the primary disseminator of the information. The teacher shows his presentation, often in the form of Powerpoint slides, answers questions, lets the participants practice the theory and gives feedback.

Participants in the flipped classroom are more involved. They study the theory at home and during the lesson they work on problems live independently or in small groups under the guidance of a change guide. It is a form of blended learning that is already widely used in higher education. The change guide is available for questions during the study.

What is IPMA?

An IPMA certification is the best step towards demonstrably better project, program and portfolio management (PPP). It ensures that projects become manageable, that the competences of professionals visibly improve and that organizations can provide a hallmark of quality and transparency in the field of project management. IPMA certification is world-leading.

IPMA stands for “International Project Management Association”. This is an umbrella association of national project management industry associations. One of the important activities of the trade associations is the certification, standardization and accreditation of project managers and project management.

In this context, IPMA published the Individual Competence Baseline ICB 2015 (ISBN 4.0-97894-92338) in 006. At the same time, it becomes clear that IPMA does not focus on knowledge and skills development based on a particular method (such as, for example, PRINCE2 © or Project-based working ©) in the professionalization question, but based on individual competencies; applying knowledge (“knowledge”), expertise (“skills”) and skills (“abilities”) to achieve desired results.

The ICB 4.0 is an integral competence standard that individuals who are active in the project, program and portfolio work field must meet. The ICB 4.0 builds on previous versions, but contextual and behavioral competences are now more central. Themes that receive more attention are, for example:

  • The strategic background of projects.
  • The rise of permanent PMOs.
  • Agile project management.
  • Corporate Social Responsibility.
  • Influence of socio-cultural aspects.
  • Self-reflection, self-motivation, personal leadership
  • Importance of networking.
  • Advice by the project manager based on process consultation.
  • Entrepreneurship in the role of the project manager.
  • Change and transformation.

IPMA Competencies

Being able to respond flexibly to continuously changing circumstances is more important than sticking to plans. The role of the project manager is shifting from a regulating manager to a process intermediary between business management, users and suppliers.

In order to be able to successfully fulfill the role of project manager in the contemporary project context, the ICB 4.0 recognizes a total of 28 competences, which are divided into 3 competence areas:

  • Perspective: 5 contextual competences that are important in tailoring projects, programs and portfolios to characteristics, goals and requirements of the existing organization and environment.
  • People: 10 behavioral competencies that are important for successful personal functioning in projects and programs.
  • Practices: 13 professional competencies that are important in managing projects. (14 professional competencies are recognized for the effective management of programs and portfolios). In addition to the well-known plan and control techniques, change management and stakeholder management techniques form an important part of these professional competences.

We use the 'flipped classroom' method for all IPMA courses. A didactic method, which is often used in higher education, where the student has the responsibility to prepare the lesson material at home, so that the teacher has more time to support in applying the learned theory during the lesson. A more pleasant dynamic is created between the teacher and all students. There is also more involvement between the course participants because they work on concrete practical cases in small groups. The lessons are also more lively, interesting and therefore just more fun and very inspiring!
