IPMA – International Project Management Association

IPMA® is a world leading non-profit making project management organisation. In 1965 a group of innovative people created a forum for project managers to network and share information. The result was IPMA, the world’s first project management association.

First IPMA conference was held in 1967 in Vein. This conference is still annually holding in different countries.

Since then IPMA has grown and spread worldwide. With members in more than 50 countries IPMA has become an international network of project management associations throughout the world.

Each national association, wich is member of this networks base own activities on national requirements and IPMA general provisions and presents its on international level.

Over the years IPMA has developed the world’s leading certification program and played a major role in the promotion and progress of project management.
