The discipline of PM must have rigorous standards and guidelines to define the professional work of PM practitioners. Thus, at the heart of IPMB is the International Project Management Association (IPMA) Competence Baseline (ICB) as a reference for all our training. For project excellence model, we use IPMA’s International Project Excellence Model which is used every year by the international assessors to select winning projects.

In addition to ICB, Association of Project Management (APM) Body of Knowledge www.apm.org.uk (forty-six knowledge areas required to manage any successful project) is also referenced on a need basis. For training, materials from PM Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), Project Managemetn Institute (PMI), is also referenced.

In near future, IPMB will also work with members to establish standards unique to the cultural makeup of Bangladesh. These standards will be incorporated into Bangladeshi first National Competence Baseline (NCB).
