ISO/IEC 21500 Series

Standard for Project Management

ISO International Standards are documents that provide specifications and guidelines that can be used consistently to ensure that products, processes and services are fit for their purpose. For business, they are strategic tools that reduce costs by minimizing waste and errors and increasing productivity. They help companies to access new markets, level the playing field for developing countries and facilitate free and fair global trade.

The ISO Standards series of course have been developed to provide professionals with guidance on mandatory requirements to put in place in their organization as well as practical recommendations regarding the formal or informal certification process related to it.

The specific ISO/IEC 21500 course focuses on project management and provides guidance and tools to ensure that projects consistently meet their performance criteria (costs, timescales, quality, scope, risk and benefits), and that project management activities are consistently improved.

The benefits of using the ISO/IEC 21500 series include:
Project deliverables compliant with customers’ requirements;
Better control on project constraints management;
Increased return on investment of projects;
Improved image and market position.
