Selecting the right project management certification can be confusing for practitioners as there are several that are internationally well known and established.
There are also different organizations’ publishing standards and best practices that make it hard for organizations to select the way of working that best suits their needs.
This White Paper outlines similarities and differences in three of the most widespread and adopted standards and best practices in the world: ISO® 21500:2012 (ISO 21500), the PMBOK® Guide and
PRINCE2®. For example, the PMBOK® Guide (and to some extent ISO 21500) is principally focused on the knowledge required by a project manager whereas PRINCE2 is more concerned with how to manage
the whole project. The question is not which should I choose but how to use the complementary approaches to derive the maximum benefit from each.
In this paper, ‘approach’ is used as a common term to describe each of the practices and standards.
