The Cyprus Project Management Society (CPMS) is a non-profit organisation established in February of 2008. The objectives of CPMS are:
- the promotion of international project management standards and techniques in Cyprus;
- the introduction of the benefits from the application of a project management culture in companies and the society in general.
Our activities are related to project management standards and the certification of companies and individuals. The Society, also, participates in research conducted in the area of project management in collaboration with other international associations.
Our efforts will entail the institutionalisation of the Project Management profession in Cyprus by introducing international project management standards and techniques and promoting project management academic and professional certifications to students and local professionals.
A critical success factor for the Society is the association with the International Project Management Association (IPMA), a leading organisation that develops project management competences and standards. As of September 2008, the CPMS has successfully joined the IPMA family and was awarded transitional national member status.
Until today, the CPMS represents the IPMA in Cyprus and promotes its activities, standards and professional training and certifications.
Furthermore, having the IPMA’s expertise, knowledge, certifications and network of 46 national associations from around the world, the CPMS aims to establish a professional project management culture in Cyprus. We want to transfer to Cyprus the benefits from countries and societies where project management is practiced widely.
