The primary aim of the GAPPS is to facilitate mutual recognition and transferability of project management standards and qualifications by providing the global project management community with tools.
In doing this, the GAPPS has developed a number of tools that can be used for a wide range of purposes to assist the global project management community. These tools can be used:
- to compare different project based standards and assessments,
- to assess the relative complexity of projects or programs,
- to categorise different types of programs,
- to better understand, to guide development, and assess the competence of practitioners in a range of project based roles.
