ABOUT US

The Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) is the premier, longest-serving body for project management in Australia. With over 10,000 members, we are recognised by Australian business, industry and government as the key promoter, developer and leader in project management professionalism.

AIPM is the second-largest member of the International Project Management Association (IPMA), as well as the secretariat of the Asia Pacific Federation of Project Management (apfpm), an organisation initiated by the AIPM in early 2010.
 

VISION & VALUES

Our vision is to be regarded as a world authority on project management practices and competency, and to provide top quality and relevant services to our members and partners.

AIPM's role is to improve the knowledge, skills and competence of project managers and related project personnel, all of whom play a key part in the achievement of business objectives – not just project objectives.
 

MISSION

AIPM has five mission statements:

  1. Proactively engage, support and grow membership.

    We aim to recognise the diverse needs of our members, and create opportunities for them to interact and develop.

  2. Ensure AIPM has the best national and international competency based standards and assessment program.

    AIPM works to provide advanced learning and development opportunities to members and the project management sector.

  3. Improve and support good professional practice.

    We aim to support good project management practice through research, innovation and thought leadership.

  4. Promote and communicate the value of project management.

    AIPM promotes the value of the project management profession to key stakeholders and the wider community.

  5. Be financially viable and sustainable.

    We aim to have a sound risk-mitigation profile; supported and engaged board and councils; clearly defined and articulated strategic and business planning; internal IT capability; and a healthy and happy staff culture.
     

DIVERSITY STATEMENT

The Australian Institute of Project Management has a strong commitment to diversity and seeks to promote an inclusive culture where people are encouraged to succeed to the best of their ability.

We recognise that diversity contributes to business success and encompasses acceptance and respect. It is an understanding that each individual is unique, including recognition of our individual differences in our journey to becoming a diverse and inclusive Institute.

These differences can include gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical abilities, family status, religious beliefs, perspective, experience, or other ideologies.
