Greetings everybody,

I have read Rodrigo´s response and I think that, in the light of the current status of the peace treaty (The referendum to approve the peace treaty was defeated), this has become again an open question. So, how will this current status affect project management activities in Colombia?.... Currently the budget that was provided by other countries to aid in implementing the peace treaty have been in many cases frozen, and in other cases the aiding countries are considering to invest the budget in another causes (eg. Helping countries affected by the Mathew Hurricane); also basically, everything that was planned by the government have been paused until the current uncertainty status of the peace treaty is surpassed.

And, I think that in the current political polarization environment that the referendum left, risks and uncertainty are arising, and this is something that can affect not only future projects but ongoing projects in Colombia.

Would be glad to listen to your opinions and revive this thread.
The current peace process is going through very difficult moments because most of the people who participated in the voting on October 2 last to approve or disapprove the agreement, voted NO and this has generated a political division in Colombia that does not allow the agreement is implemented until it meets the requests of all political forces.
Thanks all for you input, it seems that the peace treaty is at risk, but the question still remains. How will Project Management activities be benefited by the peace treaty in Colombia?
The projects exists with peace or not, and the technology we have nowadays permits we play our PM role from almost anywhere. Nevertheless many risks associated to social state of the country will have less impact than another time and may be that our functions and scope will be wider now.
Si consideramos que el proceso de paz en Colombia es un proyecto y que lo que en él ha sucedido lo consideramos lecciones aprendidas, podríamos decir que en él se han cometido varios errores críticos: pésima gestión de los interesados, una pobre gestión de las comunicaciones, un patrocinar que incumple el código de ética, un alcance corrompido, etc.
If we consider that the peace process in Colombia is a project and what it has happened we consider lessons learned, we could say that he was committed several critical errors: bad management of stakeholders, poor communications management, one sponsor who violates the code of ethics, a corrupt scope, etc.

Pablo, the hard part with projects that have a great political weight is to figure out what are the real project objectives. Not saying this is the case with the peace treaty...

thE CONFILCTOS generate greater uncertainty in increasing the value of provisions to deal with risks. a peace process makes investments safer and therefore more attractive the country as turustico and business destination.
Best regards to George Lewis, and equally to each of the members of our PMC community.

Colombia has overcome great challenges in front of its traditional bureaucratic government, organizational model par excellence in public management, largely inheritance of the Weberian model, achieving great advances from the DNP National Planning Department and the strategy designed for the improvement of public management Around the fulfillment of the objectives of the National Development Plan.

Colombia is in the group of countries with advanced
GpRD. Their planning and M & E systems show a high level of development and have methodologies that serve other countries as examples of good practices. In particular, the use that the high political authorities have made of the monitoring systems is relevant. However, the country still faces major challenges, such as integrating the investment budget with that of operating, and strengthening integration between planning and budgeting.

The planning function is developed through two instruments: (ii) the
National Development Plan (PND) at each level of government and
Annual planning exercises. The PND incorporates the objectives,
The verifiable goals and indicators, which are broken down into goals
Annually in order to be able to monitor and control the results achieved.
Since 2002, the planning exercise has incorporated a management approach
Oriented to both the four-year periods of government (PND)
As well as for the long term (Plan Vision Colombia 2019).

However, in the operationality of planning there are still some
problems. Although projects linked to the objectives of the
Plan and these, in turn, identify the products and units responsible,
The programmatic structure of the Plan is weak since the basic unit of budgeting is the project and not the program. The programmatic classifications of the expenditure associated with the plan only cover the investment, so that an important component of the allocations is still disconnected from the planning exercise. With regard to strengthening the participatory nature of planning, there are mechanisms to stimulate political control, such as the accountability of ministries to the President of the Republic, and from this to Congress.

With respect to the Peace Treaty, the overall objective of the strategy is to consolidate a Results-Driven Public Management - GpRD - of the National Development Plan. Its specific objectives are, on the one hand, to institutionalize the concept of Integral Management with Citizen Participation and, on the other hand, to develop in the public entities the institutional capacity required to meet the objectives of the programs, subprograms and projects under its responsibility. To achieve these objectives, the spaces generated by the law for the interlocution between public administration entities and civil society will be used.

Finally, we believe and am convinced that the current institutional framework takes important steps towards the Peace Treaty so that the various actors can not only access the multiplicity of benefits by being proactive with the development of their communities, but also modernize the State in For the Social and Economic Development of the country in face of its global opportunities as a nation and competitive society.

Juan Carlos - thanks for your reply... I'm going to check the Lynks to understand the topic better...
Cordial saludo para George Lewis, e igualmente para cada uno de los integrantes de nuestra comunidad PMC.

Colombia viene superando grandes desafios frente a su tradicional gobierno burocratico, modelo organizacional por excelencia en la gestion publica, en gran parte herencia del modelo Weberiano, logrando grandes avances desde la Direccion Nacional de Planeacion DNP y la estrategia diseñada para el mejoramiento de la gestión pública en torno al cumplimiento de los objetivos del Plan Nacional de Desarrollo.

Colombia se encuentra en el grupo de países con capacidades avanzadas de la
GpRD. Sus sistemas de planificación y M&E muestran un alto nivel de desarrollo y poseen metodologías que sirven a otros países como ejemplos de buenas prácticas. En particular, es relevante el uso que las altas autoridades políticas han hecho de los sistemas de monitoreo. Sin embargo, el país aún enfrenta retos importantes, como la integración del presupuesto de inversión con el de funcionamiento, y el fortalecimiento de la integración entre la planificación y el presupuesto.

La función de planificación se desarrolla a través de dos instrumentos: ii) el
Plan Nacional de Desarrollo (PND) cuatrienal en cada nivel de gobierno y ii) los
ejercicios anuales de planificación sectorial. El PND incorpora los objetivos,
las metas y los indicadores verificables, los cuales se descomponen en metas
anuales con el fin de poder monitorear y controlar los resultados alcanzados. Desde 2002 el ejercicio de planificación ha incorporado un enfoque de gestión
orientado a resultados tanto para los periodos cuatrienales de gobierno (PND)
como para el largo plazo (Plan Visión Colombia 2019).

Sin embargo, en la operatividad de la planificación aún existen algunos
problemas. Aunque se identifican los proyectos vinculados a los objetivos del
Plan y estos, a su vez, identifican los productos y las unidades responsables,
la estructura programática del Plan es débil ya que la unidad básica de presupuestación es el proyecto y no el programa. Las clasificaciones programáticas del gasto asociado al plan sólo cubren la inversión, con lo que un importante componente de las asignaciones se encuentra aún desligado del ejercicio de planificación. En lo referente al fortalecimiento de carácter participativo de la planificación, existen mecanismos para estimular el control político, como la rendición de cuentas de los ministerios al Presidente de la República, y de este al Congreso.

Respecto al Tratado de Paz, la estrategia contemplada tiene por objetivo general consolidar una Gestión Pública Orientada a Resultados --GpRD-- del Plan Nacional de Desarrollo. Sus objetivos específicos son, por un lado, institucionalizar el concepto de Gestión Integral con Participación Ciudadana y, por otro, desarrollar en las entidades públicas la capacidad institucional requerida para cumplir con los objetivos de los programas, subprogramas y proyectos bajo su responsabilidad. Para el logro de estos objetivos, se aprovecharán los espacios generados por la ley para la interlocución entre las entidades de la administración pública y la sociedad civil.

Finalmente, creemos y estoy convencido, que el actual marco publico institucional en Colombia viene pasos importantes frente al Tratado de Paz para que los diversos actores puedan no solo acceder a la multiplicidad de beneficios siendo proactivos con el desarrollo de sus comunidades, sino ademas, contribuir a partir de sus procesos sociales con modernizar al Estado en pro del Desarrollo Social y Economico del pais frente a sus oportunidades globales como nacion y sociedad competitiva.
