What is ISO 21502?

As an update of ISO 21500:2012, ISO 21502 (Project, Programme and Portfolio Management - Guidance on Project Management) is the international standard for project management, applicable to a wide range of organizations, including public and private entities, regardless of their size or type.

The standard offers valuable guidance to assist project managers and project-based organizations in successfully delivering projects, while outlining high-level practices proven effective in project management. ISO 21502's versatile guidance can be implemented across various organization types and projects. In addition to benefiting project managers and executive management, this standard is also valuable for project sponsors, boards, auditors, and organizations focused on developing national or organizational standards or practices for project management.
