1st International Project Management Boot Camp 2023: Africa, Ghana lacks Project Management, Our inability to develop
1st International Project Management Boot Camp initiative was successfully launched on Wednesday, 25th August, 2023 at School of Graduate Studies Auditorium, University of Cape Coast, becoming necessary for project managers and stake holders to come together to brainstorm on how to plan and execute an assigned project. The conference trained over 300 participants.
Speaking to Brand Reporter on Ghanaweb DjQwequ, Engr. Dr. Dr. E. A. Gyamera, the Executive Director for GYAM group of companies made it known that, this initiative has become necessary because Africa and Ghana has failed to catch up to the right standard of development as compared to foreign countries. This is because we lack project management.
“Have been worried about the state of how things are going on in Africa and Ghana. Why are people over there developing more than us. We are working hard but there is more to that. We lack project management as a country. After meeting and having discussions with Mr. Alexander Caldas who has Africa at heart, we realized that what we can do to help is to sell the idea of project management: how we can do things at the right time, at the right place and complete on time.
Explaining further, Dr. Dr. Gyamera stated that every project must have a beginning and an end. Blame games are becoming unbecoming due to delays in projects. He also complained of not seeing any project charter for any emerging project to commerce, therefore this conference will help curb that.
1st International Project Management Boot Camp is an initiative inspired by Engr. Dr. Dr. E. A. Gyamera teaming up with Institute of Project Managements and Professionals (IPMP), GYAM Institute of Technology and Industrialization (GTI) and Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET).
