International Project Management Draft Standard available for Public Comment

Monday, June 20th, 2011

The new International Project Management Standard ISO 21500 is now available for public review and comment.  The standard has been developed over the last few years with over 35 countries participating in its development.  Each country is managing a review by project managers in that country.

In Australia, a committee MB12 formed under the auspices of Standards Australia has been carrying out the review.  If you are an Australian, you can sign up to review and comment on the International Standard.  Go to to find out more details.

International Standard on Project Management (ISO 21500)

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

As many people are aware there is a new international standard for project management being produced through ISO.  It was originally due to be available in 2011 but has now been delayed until 2012.  Australia is playing an active role in the development and have been involved from the initial meeting in London some years ago.  Basically there are three workgroups and in each country that is participating, mirror groups to provide input.  Project Perfect is represented in Australia with Neville Turbit convenor of one of those working groups.  For those who are interested in progress, a communique was issued in January to outline progress, and in particular the work being carried out in Australia. click here to read the communique.

We will try and keep you up to date with progress through this blog.  It is a slow painful process of working through drafts and taking on board the comments of 30+ countries who are currently participating. ISO have a process which we are following and we are still to get to the point of having a publically available draft.
