International Centre for Complex Project Management (ICCPM)

In 2005, Australian, UK and US Government bodies and defence industry commenced an initiative aimed at improving the international community’s ability to successfully deliver very complex projects and manage complexity across all industry and government sectors.

Central to this initiative was the establishment in September 2007 of an international not-for-profit company to provide global leadership to achieve this exciting objective. That company is the International Centre for Complex Project Management (ICCPM), previously known as the College of Complex Project Managers.

Government support has since expanded to include Canada and Singapore and a growing number of global corporate partners including BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, Booz Allen Hamilton and Thales.

There is a strong emerging body of evidence and research indicating that traditional, linear project management tools and techniques, while still necessary, are insufficient to manage the most complex of today’s projects through to successful delivery on time and within costs and performance targets.

With support from its corporate partners, ICCPM has already made a significant contribution towards the development and delivery of the world’s first Executive Masters in Complex Project Management through the Queensland University of Technology. ICCPM will continue to support the development and delivery of education and training programs, aimed at improving global capability to deliver complex projects and manage complexity.

Potential benefits and savings from the improved management of complex projects are significant. Not only will there be substantial direct returns to ICCPM partner organisations, there will also be an increase in the capacity of the global community to effect the strategic change objectives required for these complex times.
