Our SIG Strategy: as a SIG is built from a group of stakeholders who share a common concern or passion, it is critical to define a clear focus for a SIG. This strategy proposes a shift in focus, and this is captured in the change of the name from the Smart Rural SIG to the Smarter Rural SIG. It is understood that the core focus of IPMA SIG’s is on the integration of PPPM within the particular thematic area of each of the individual SIG’s (e.g. Smarter Rural with Smarter Cities in particular but also any other IPMA SIG as well with potential synergies).
Our SIG Vision: “Enhancing the liveability, workability and sustainability of Rural Context through project, programme and portfolio management by utilising enablers (e.g. connected technology, infrastructure, finance etc.)”
Our SIG Mission: “Enable project, programme and portfolio management competence development, knowledge sharing, standardisation and network building among those who are passionate about building Smarter Rural”
