IPMA Certification Training


DPM, Development and Project Management, is building a global community of Project Managers to 1) enable the professional development of individuals in project management and 2) help transform organization business processes. DPM global Community of business transformation agents embark on a journey of building a mindset and capacity for change and transformation that most project delivery organizations seek. 

At DPM we empower individuals in project management competence building; with our project management weekly practice based seminar series. We achieve this based on the IPMA Individual Competence Baseline and Oracle Primavera Cloud – the global leader in enterprise project portfolio management.  We trust that the application of the learning outcomes will inspire lifelong professional development that ensure sustainable impact at the work place.
