Advisory Board

The Association of International Project Management Officers (AIPMO®)

Is a professional international association with a researcher community representing International Project Management Officers including Project, Program and Portfolio managers involved or responsible for the determination of PMO need, business justification, design, establishment, running including the retirement of high performing Project Management Offices.

AIPMO’s mission is to advance the understanding, design and implementation of high performing single, group and enterprise PMOs, through the certification of proven international PMO (IPMO®) capabilities based on its AIPMO-IPMO Body of Knowledge©.

The AIPMO® exclusively facilitates and delivers three global IPMO certifications areas based on industry standard and actualized research, the Core Certifications [IPMO Foundation certification (IPMO-F®), the IPMO Practitioner certification (IPMO-P®), and the IPMO Expert level certification (IPMO-E®], the Specialist Certifications, and the Master Certifications. The three levels of the Core Certifications indicate the levels of competencies for International Project Management Officers which are based on AIPMO-IPMO Body of Knowledge© including its integrated IPMO Lifecycle Framework.

Our logo, ab imis foundamentis, is Latin locution meaning ‘from the very foundations’, renovation from the foundation. It was chosen because of the need to re-think (renovatio) our understanding, design and value of PMOs due to the way they have evolved over time and how they can continue to provide a permanent but adaptive project organizational structure. Thus, the value that comes with it the continuous process of regenerating a dynamic and adaptable PMO identity for multiple organizational designs without the limitations of the traditional PMO structure and the awareness of today business complexity.
