The complexity of implementing a successful Protection of Personal Information (PoPI) Act project requires a diverse team with a strong skillset.
Anelda Dillon, from Bizmod Consulting says that the project manager is an integral component of a PoPI project. The multifaceted aspects mean that a strong leader is required to pull the project together while managing the different streams and work packages.
Dillon uses the analogy of a conductor in an orchestra when describing the role of the project manager. This individual needs to be cross skilled and understand the various elements of project management, business analysis, change management, implementation, and training.
