Abstract [sv]

Studien ämnade att få reda på vad upplevelsen av den Svenska certifieringsprocess hos svenskt Projektforum var samt om det medförde en kompetenshöjning och ett värde hos de individer som har certifierat sig. För att medföra en bredare inblick i vad individer värdesätter i och med en certifiering och för att ge Svenskt Projektforum de verktyg de kan behöva för att förbättra den Svenska certifieringsprocessen utformades denna studie. En kvalitativ innehållsanalys med en summerande ansats genomfördes genom 11 semistrukturerade intervjuer som utfördes på IPMA-certifierade (International Project Management Association) projektledare, valda från Svenskt Projektforums databaser. Utifrån det berörda ämnet utvecklades följande frågeställningar: Hur beskriver IPMA-certifierade projektledare sin eventuella kompetenshöjning i och med certifieringen? Samt, vilket eventuellt värde tillskriver de en IPMA-certifiering? Resultatet påvisade att både en kompetenshöjning och ett värde upplevs i och med en IPMA-certifiering samt en lucka i tidigare forskning identifierades när det kommer till reflektion och bedömningssätt. 

Abstract [en]

This study investigated the experience of the Swedish certification process at the Swedish Project Management Association, and whether the certification contributed to an increased competence and an additional value of the individuals who have certified themselves. The research was designed to bring a broader insight into the value of individuals through certification, as well as to provide the Swedish Project Management Association with tools for improving the Swedish certification process. A qualitative content analysis with a summative approach was used and conducted through 11 semi-structured interviews conducted with IPMA-certified (International Project Management Association) project managers, selected from the Swedish Project Management Association databases. Based on the topic concerned, the following questions emerged from the analysis: How do IPMA-certified project managers describe their potential skills enhancement with the certification? And what value do they assign to an IPMA-certification? The results demonstrated that participants experienced competence enhancement and an additional value through IPMA-certification. Additionally, findings identified a gap in previous research pertaining to reflection and assessment.
