Complex project management standards one step closer
The International Centre for Complex Project Management (ICCPM) and APMG-International have formed an alliance that formalises the two bodies’ objective to encourage the use of standard methodologies.
Other aims of the partnership include the distribution of research and knowledge-based assets, the sharing of management consulting tools and products, and mutual support for collaboration on complex project management.
ICCPM is the global peak body for complex project management, a rich source of information and knowledge about best practice management of complex projects. APMG is known worldwide as an accreditation and certification organisation, particularly for the UK Government’s suite of project management methodologies: PRINCE2, MSP, MoP, P3O, MoV, and M_o_R.
“APMG and ICCPM share the ideals of each other’s organisations and will be working together for mutual benefit to improve the delivery of projects and programs and in particular complex projects and programs,” said Stephen Hayes, managing director and CEO of ICCPM.
He noted that ICCPM recognised the values of the Cabinet Office Maturity Model P3M3® and the additional value of APMG’s consultancy products—the APMG Maturity Index and the APMG Change Track tools—in working to improve the management of complex projects.
APMG chairman Alan Harpham in turn recognised the value of ICCPM’s global collaborations, Associate Partner Network capabilities and its research centre, KD2. “We are looking forward to working in collaboration with the ICCPM in order to help project managers running complex projects get the recognition they deserve,” he said.
