Capgemini’s view on Project Management

Project managers play a major role in ensuring the profitability of the company by executing their engagements with positive financial results, positive client satisfaction and by selling additional projects. Proven project management and sales skills are key, because of the complexity and the extensive scope of the engagements. Project management includes specialties, as transformation and transition management.

Our Senior Project Managers take full responsibility for managing transition and transformation projects or the major streams or towers within a very large program.

Capgemini has its own Project Management methodology and a corresponding certification program. Of course external certification like IPMA or PMI is also facilitated. The project management role comes in different variations:

1) Assignment as a project manager to external clients (staff augmentation);

2) Assignment to bids and projects.

Within the region Central Europe there is a Project Management community network of approx. 80 members, from project management officers to senior project managers.
