Regarding Project Management for Master Plans
Network:0


I am reviewing the types of roles that would manage a Master Plan.

I am discussing the merits of a pay review because I manage two Master Plans concurrently and wondered if any members had any information on the job titles or qualifications needed or recommended to manage master plans?

Any information in this light would be beneficial.

Are we talking of overseeing multiple different projects, as in a Program Manager role? Trying to understand the context of a Master Plan.

Andrew,
Master plans are strategic plans that cover the next 10-20 years in a particular discipline, like a Transportation Master Plan, or a Parks and Trails Master Plan. These are the ones I am currently leading.
They typically result in an implementation plan, budgeting considerations, and some policy recommendations as well as a host of updated mapping results.
They point you in a direction with a vision and goals that sync with strategic visions and corporate goals.
Thanks.

Paul,

As part of my role, I am also currently managing two master plans (One is part of a portfolio) besides managing other projects. My title is Senior Projects & Development Manager.

The qualifications needs is experience in real estate developments, project management, urban planning would be an asset and of course knowledge with the area's bylaws would be an asset too. Master Planning also depends on soft skills like creativity and innovation.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
RK
