The IPMA Competence Baseline (ICB) is based upon project management theory combined with the practices and demands from some 60 member associations. It is the common framework document which all IPMA Member Associations and Certification Bodies abide by to ensure that consistent standards are applied.
The ICB is of most use to individual project managers who wish to review their competence in project, programme and portfolio management, as well as for candidates and assessors involved in a certification. The ICB can also be used as a guide to develop training materials, for research purposes and as a reference document for those who are interested in the project management competence.
