Most PM skills assessments focus on process, not Entrepreneurial skills such as team leadership and learning agility. However, Entrepreneurial skills constitute seven of the top eight PM effectiveness driver categories. The Lightweight PM Skills Assessment Tool for PMOs is designed to help organizations perform a rapid assessment of PMs' skills. PMOs can use this tool to evaluate PMs against eight different competencies. The tool visually displays assessment scores for each competency, allowing you to identify strengths and areas for development.
