8 Project Manager in depth aIPM has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Recruitment and Consulting Services Association (RCSA), recognising the need to promote project management standards in Australian organisations. “ We need employers or their agents, such as recruiters, to make the best informed buying decisions when it comes to project managers, to allow them to select candidates appropriate for the roles available,” said Sher yle Moon, AIPM’s chief executive. “ This significantly improves the chances of project success.” RCSA chief executive Steve Granland said the memorandum gives RCSA members a leg-up when hiring for project management roles as the skills shortage worsens and demand for quality candidates intensifies. “ The RCSA is responsible for providing its members with opportunities to improve their business through the provision of tools, resources and education. The memorandum of understanding with the AIPM provides such opportunities.” AIPM, the peak body for project ma nagement in Australia, conducts competency-based assessments of its members through its Registered Project Manager (RegPM) program certification to ensure members meet minimum professional standards of competency. “A IPM’s competency assessment is a clear Australian standard for project managers and the RCSA has a pivotal role in ensuring members and their clients understand and receive that standard of hire,” said Moon. “This will result in lower risk for projects and more confidence in project outcomes.” Trend towards certification Registered Project Manager (RegPM), AIPM’s certification program, has grown considerably in recent years as more project managers recognise the importance of differentiating themselves as industry leaders. RegPM provides AIPM members with clear evidence of advanced skills and knowledge, and commitment to professionalism.
