ISO 21500 Guide to Project Management

The Draft International Standard (DIS) of ISO 21500 has been released for comment. The Australian committee MB12 is seeking input from Australian project management professionals to help formulate the Australian response to the international committee.

Information on how to sign up for this review or to simply track progress through to the final publication, the Australian committee has launched a web site at http://www.mb12.org.au/. Mosaic will be continuing to support the development of this standard through to publication.

Readers of this post from other nations should contact their national standards authority if they wish to comment.
