Professor Mladen Radujković, the current IPMA President, was very pleased with the CoD meeting, and stated “The CoD meeting in Warsaw confirmed IPMA strong orientation for moving further forward.

The Executive Board demonstrated the very first results of the policy focused on efficiency, results and development of project management profession.
