About CSM

CSM was established in 2004 by its founder Christopher Simon Moropa, who is the former President of the Association of Project management in South Africa, after having realized that organization needs to ensure that they enjoy the trust of their stakeholders. To that end they need to identify interventions that inherently attract capacity, experience, and creativity in delivering value to its stakeholders. Key to recognize in this instance is the competing landscape for integrity of its processes and resources (people, talent, entrepreneurs, and experience). This problem does not require throwing “resources/bodies” at the problem, but to retain a strategic view in order to constantly perform according to stakeholder’s expectation. This approach CSM included a robust model of execution that centers upon the adoption of a sustainable solution, capable of being flexible enough to accommodate changes within the environment, without having to revisit and re-plan whenever new initiatives or changes are promoted. This project serves requests that are categorizing or cascading the various needs into a cohesive Programme Intervention Plan, within a framework that allows for continuous learning.
