Purpose of International Project Management

The purpose of International Project Management is to ensure the project achieves its goals & objectives, by planning, directing, tracking, and controlling, and improving the activities necessary for development and delivery of required products and services. The IPMC ™ Project Management Methodology involves developing plans and maintaining them throughout the project life cycle. Estimates are established and maintained regarding cost, schedule, size of work products, and critical technical parameters. Commitments to project objectives and plans are established and maintained throughout the project. Project participants and stakeholders are identified and organized to meet project objectives. As the project is executed, the project and performance are monitored and tracked in accordance with the plan. Corrective actions are taken as needed to ensure the project will meet its objectives. Continuous improvement is enhanced at all levels. International considerations in such specific contexts often over-determine many of the procedures introduced and decisions reached.
