Membership researchhas indicated that project management practitioners need to have access to a publication that provides practical and pragmatic insights into both what is currently happening and where the profession is going. Our hopes, and confident expectations, are that Project Management Practice will: Strengthen and enhance co-operation within the impressive network of National Organisations that is the IPMA. Be a useful, international forum for members' opinions and ideas. Promote effectively the project management profession by informing members of the latest thinking and experience of project management in practice. Keep our own members in Ireland in touch with the international project management profession. Increase our own members' awareness, and perhaps more importantly the awareness of the industry, commerce and the not-for-profit sector, that the Diploma in Applied Project Management (DipAPM) and the IPMA certification are high quality, internationally recognised PM qualifications.
