Some of these works are results of research, some are significant, all add to the professional body of knowledge.”

“The paper by Paul Giammalvo is particularly meaningful,” Pells adds. “as it is an update to his benchmarking research on project management certifications around the world. The reports from correspondents are also interesting, including Jouko Vaskimo’s report on the recent meeting in Athens of ISO technical committee 258 that is working on a new international standard for project, program and portfolio management.”
