iMA Research

In the second phase of our research we are delighted to be able to offer a prize draw to all those who complete the iMA Praxis survey. Courtesy of accredited training organisation Balance Global, we are offering five on-line Praxis Foundation learning courses and thanks to Van Haren publishing we are able to offer 10 Praxis Framework pocketbooks. See here for the Terms and Conditions of our Prize Draw.

Welcome to this research project which is a collaboration between Praxis Framework and Team Animation.

Our aim is to enhance the Praxis Framework in a very practical way. Eventually, all key functions and processes in the Praxis Framework will be enhanced by explanations of how different people with different communication and engagement styles apply them in practice.

We believe that understanding your own style and that of others will make the job of working together as a team far more effective and will be applicable, not just to Praxis but to all P3M frameworks.


How to help...

There are four steps to helping us create the next generation of project, programme and portfolio frameworks.

Step 1

First of all, you need to know your preferred communication and engagement style. You can find that out in just a few minutes by clicking on the picture opposite and answering 10 questions in a short diagnostic.

The survey at the end of this process will ask you whether you think the result is a reasonable reflection of your preferred style.

Please note that this is an external site and you will be asked for your email address and whether you want to receive future communications from iMA.

Step 2

Once you know your colour style, click on this picture to see how we are adding information about different communications styles to the Praxis Framework.

Step 3

Next, you should visit three of our sample pages to see if the explanations of how we think your preferences affect your preferred approach to three Praxis functions:

Each page describes all four communication styles. If you have time to review all pages that would be great but if you only have time to look at one or two, we would still appreciate your feedback.

Step 4

Finally, we would greatly appreciate you completing our brief survey. It's only five questions so won't take up a lot of your time.

It will ask if you think the sample pages are a reasonable reflection of your attitude when applying the different functions.

Our aim at this stage is to assess the value to the profession of this aproach and seek feedback to aide its further development.


What next?

This is just the start of the iMA Praxis Framework project. We will be adding content, instigating discussions and posting news in our LinkedIn group.

To keep in touch, simply click on the picture opposite and ask to join the group. Remember, we are creating a free resource for the benefit of the profession and as a member of the P3M community you can make a valuable contribution.

If you are not on LinkedIn, you can follow us on Twitter at @DonnieMacNicol or @PraxisFramework to be kept up to date with our progress.

If you want to understand more about how this thinking can be applied practically to you and your team, then please visit the page opposite to see how individuals, teams and organisations can apply iMA Praxis in a practical manner.
