ProjectManagers.org and the ISO 21500 Analysis Group are collaborating together for contributing to expand the ISO 21500.

G21500-ProjectManagers.org
The ISO 21500 Analysis Group is a Special Interest Group (SIG) that was born in 2011 inside the PMI’s chapter of Madrid as a Community of Practice. One of their great achievements was the development of the ISO 21500 Implementation Guide. PMI strict rules doesn’t allow developing new best practices guides to their Communities of Practice. PMI stated that PMBOK is the only ISO 21500 implementation guide. So in April 2013, PMI’s Madrid decided to disassociate their relationship with this group.

ProjectManagers.org recognizes the talent of this group of trusted and reputed professionals, and has established a collaborative partnership where we are working together for contributing to expand the ISO 21500 worldwide.

As a result of this collaboration, today we are proud to share with you the State-of-the-Art Report on the ISO 21500 Implementation in the Spanish-speaking countries. Also PDF downloads are available in English and also in Spanish.
