Project Management (IPMA)

Course Description

IPMA provides the global competence standards for individuals working in project, program and portfolio management. Individual competence is based on, but not limited to knowledge. Competence includes the application of knowledge, skills and abilities in order to achieve the desired results. The Individual Competence Baseline (IPMA ICB®) outlines the competences by describing 29 competence elements, organized in three competence areas (“Eye of Competence”): Perspective, People and Practice. All competence elements are detailed with the required knowledge and skills. Key Competence Indicators (KCIs) provide the definitive indicators for successful project, program and portfolio management. The IPMA ICB addresses a complete set of competences for all kind of individuals working in the field of project, program and portfolio management, independent of their job title. Whether you are a project manager, a project planner, a purchaser, a PMO, a sponsor, an agile coach, a scrum master, a squad coach or any other function, you need competences to achieve success in your specific project environment. Practitioners utilize the IPMA ICB to acquire competences necessary in their field of responsibility and to prepare for a certification in the IPMA-4-Level Certification System.
IPMA Level D® is IPMA’s starting level, aimed at starting professionals. Level C® is aimed at people who have 3-5 years of working experience, and is comparable in level to most internationally used certification schemes. Level B® and Level A® are the levels for the very experienced and competent project, program and portfolio managers. When you reach these levels, you have proven to be an all-round, experienced professional, capable of running complex initiatives.
