IPM recruits, trains, and continuously develops project leaders who possess strong interpersonal skills to complement solid business and technical acumen. IPM invests significantly in training and development, typically averaging more hours/year/employee than most Fortune 500 companies. IPM also supports Project Management Professional (PMP) certification through the Project Management Institute (PMI). More than half of our employees hold an advanced degree, many have Six Sigma certification, and the majority are PMP-certified.
IPM’s objective is to provide solutions that continue to deliver value well into the future. This focus to sustainability requires more than understanding the technical and business requirements of any project. It requires a thorough understanding of the value, philosophies, and cultural “markers” that define an organization’s “DNA.” IPM’s goal is to understand both the enablers and inhibitors to performance and facilitate a transformational project management approach that is positive, impactful, and sustaining.
Values Put to Practice:
The performance of our staff is measured not only against the critical project management skill elements, but intrinsic character elements as well. Attracting and retaining outstanding employees allows IPM to consistently deliver superior results to our clients. IPM has been named to the “Best Small and Medium Workplaces” by the Great Place to Work Institute® from 2010-2016. IPM received the prestigious Better Business Bureau International Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics in 2005 and was a finalist for the award in 2010. Also in 2010, IPM received the American Business Ethics Award from the Foundation for Financial Services Professionals for high standards of ethical behavior. In 2016, IPM was named to Forbes' inaugral list as one of the 25 "Best Small Companies" in America. These awards are a testament to IPM’s Mission and Beliefs and serve as validation of our passion for excellence, honest and ethical conduct, and uncompromising integrity.
