Comparison of project and program management standards

img_1292908539_15068_1402356494_mod_193_135To help you compare the many competing management standards for project, program and portfolio, we have mapped the following standards using GAPPS standards as the neutral spine.

GAPPS standards have been developed drawing on what is common across all existing project-based management standards in order to identify the common core covered by the majority of standards, provide a neutral basis for comparison.  The comparison shows how well each standard covers the core and also identifies the extent to which each standard goes beyond the core.

Whilst the standards have been mapped to the relevant GAPPS standard, liability for use of the mapping for any purpose rests with the user. GAPPS does not provide qualifications or training against its standards, and therefore any use of this mapping should be referred to the owner of the standard mapped for confirmation of recognition of equivalence prior to usage.
