2000s: ORGANISATIONAL MATURITY, PROFESSIONAL RECOGNITION

Project management grows and matures as a discipline, as does the AIPM, which becomes known as the peak body for project management in Australia. During the early 2000s, project-driven organisations proliferate around the world, and the rigour of project management increases with the value of competent project managers.
