New book from CRC presents project management competence in new ways

25 January 2018 – Florida, USA – CRC Press has announced the publication of a new book titled Managing Project Competence: The Lemon and the Loop, by Rolf Medina. Published in January 2018, this new book presents practical ways to acquire new knowledge and skills. Readers of the book are given new insight into the concept of competence and how both people and organizations can be more competitive, innovative, and open to learning.

According to the CRC release: This book describes how we as individuals, as well as organizations, can be efficient in the development and utilization of competence. It takes two perspectives of competence and connects them in a project-intensive and knowledge-intensive context. The first perspective is the “Lemon,” which focuses on individual competence and the role of organizational culture. The Lemon framework takes the concept of competence based on knowledge and experience and explains how a person can apply knowledge and experience to different contexts. It changes the concept of competence from being static to being agile and dynamic.

The second perspective of competence is the “Loop,” which models how organizations can manage not only to the benefit of organizational strategies and goals but also to an individual’s future career. The Lemon and the Loop are the basic tools to make competence and performance management agile and effective.

Rolf Medina has conducted research in organizational development and innovation, in which competence and projects have been cornerstones leading to several academic publications in well-ranked journals. His previous research is one of the bases for the present book. In parallel with his professional career, Rolf is guest lecturer and supervisor at Umeå University in Sweden, SKEMA Business School in France, and University College of London in the UK. Rolf holds a PhD in Programme and Project Management from SKEMA, France; a MSc in Project Management from Karlstad University in Sweden; and a BSc in Computer Engineering and Mechatronics from University College of Halmstad in Sweden.
