Planning Ministry, lobbying for the establishment of a National Planning Authority

16 March 2012, 11:11 Alfred Ng'ang'a

Local business solutions provider, Linksoft Group and global project management solutions provider, Astrowix, have announced a joint partnership to unveil a fully fledged project management firm to serve a growing African clientele.

In a move aimed at deepening project management skills in Africa, the two firms have announced the launch of One Africa Limited, a dedicated consulting firm that will provide key services in the project management space.

Plans are already at an advanced stage for One Africa to establish a Nairobi based centre of excellence for technology adoption and application covering the project management discipline.

Speaking during the unveiling of One Africa Limited, Vision 2030 Delivery Board Director General Mugo Kibati disclosed that the Ministry of Planning has already proposed the setting up of a National Planning Authority (NPA) to spearhead government project management services in the new dispensation.

“Through our parent ministry, we have already started off the process to lobby for  National Planning Authority through a cabinet memo,” Kibati explained.

“Such an Authority will be very critical in mainstreaming project management services for all our medium term projects and ensuring that projects are designed and executed efficiently,” Mugo added.

Globally, project management services have grown to grab a position as one of the key management efficiency tools that provide cost and resource savings while enhancing the quality of project executions.

Linksoft Group CEO, Anthony Wahome, disclosed that the firm has been set up to provide specialist project management support across the continent.

In Africa, Wahome expressed his concern that more than KES 100billion is lost due to lack of project management skills and related technologies both in the private and public sectors.

“It’s unfortunate that we continue to loss heavily in terms of funds, resources and even man-hours’ due to lack of sound project management solutions which can help plug the losses,” Wahome noted.

One Africa, Wahome explained will provide portfolio, program and project management education, consultancy and technology support for key clients ranging from mobile phone companies, development organisations and natural resource exploration companies among others.

Coinciding with One Africa’s launch in an election year in Kenya, Wahome further explained that the new consulting firm, will also feature a political project management division to provide much needed services to political campaign vehicles.
