Programme on Total Project Management, 31 Jan - 3 Feb 2018, New Delhi

Word Project has come from Latin word 'Projectum', which means to throw something forward. Projects in essence are undertaken to build future. Future is uncertain and hence risky. Global authorities have evolved a set of competencies which are imperative for people who want to be associated with this profession of building future.

International Project Management Associates (IPMA), formed in 1965 is the oldest global association of Project Management professionals focused on building skills of Project Management professionals. It has Member Associations across 68 countries. IPMA offers 4 Level Certification system covering entire career path of a project professional. Project Management Associates, established in 1993, is a not for profit society and an exclusive Member Association of IPMA in India.
