In 2019 the master’s students of the Business School of Lausanne under the management of their professor, Claudia Kary, executed a survey in the hospital sector that revealed a close correlation between the existence of a Project Management standard within an organisation and their level of maturity.

PRINCE2 and Hermes were the two standards mostly used by Swiss hospitals. Hospitals, which used either standard as their project management backbone had a higher overall maturity than those not applying any standard.

A follow-on online workshop with several hospitals after the first wave of the pandemic furthermore revealed changed needs in project management. Because of the necessity to react quickly, organisations adopted agile ways of working.
However, not being able to work in close contact with your colleagues was named as a big obstacle in “agile” projects.

In line with these events, QRP, in association with ecoHermes and Claudia Kary, decided to organize a further online event. The event aims to present the main points of the survey and workshop, focusing mainly on the HERMES methodology, and to create a space where professionals have the opportunity to give their own personal contributions.
