The highest-quality learning experience with training solutions founded on meaning, efficiency and discipline

In my early days as a PM and particularly in my work in the area of rationalisations, it was hard to ignore the fact that organisations delivering PM strategies through projects were so successful. I felt strongly about the need for project management as a generic management methodology in corporate and government, beyond the expected IT and construction industries. Creating IPM was also very important to me to ensure those who studied project management got the highest-quality learning experience with training solutions founded on meaning, efficiency and discipline.
