New IPMA ICB, PEB and OCB ready for download

The International Project Management Association (IPMA) announced the release of three standards for immediate download and web viewing today. The three standards are the IPMA Individual Competence Baseline (IPMA ICB), version 4.0, the IPMA Project Excellence Baseline (IPMA PEB), version 1.0, and the IPMA Organisational Competence Baseline (IPMA OCB), version 1.1.

The IPMA Individual Competence Baseline delivers a completely rebuilt standard for individual competence, extended to projects, programmes and portfolio management. The IPMA Project Excellence Baseline delivers a streamlined model of the existing Project Excellence Model, designed for project success and team performance. The IPMA Organisational Competence Baseline offers a pathway to improve the performance of an organisation that is aligned with both the IPMA ICB and the IPMA PEB.

“We are excited to offer the project management community a new generation of standards. These standards represent an important leap forward in the application of competence in real work place environments,” remarked IPMA President Reinhard Wagner.

All three standards are completely free in digital format at our new products site, http://products.ipma.world/. Print versions will be offered for a price. Each standard was developed over the past several years utilizing teams of international experts from a wide range of disciplines including business, government, academia, industry, and non-profit leadership.

“IPMA is moving forward with a new suite of products and services in 2016. These new offerings are built upon the three standards released today, and our Member Associations are excited to have new offerings to bring to their customers,” said IPMA Executive Director Amin Saidoun.

All three standards will be available for print by March 1.
