IPMA Blog – Learn more about project management

Marco Buijnsters

Professional project management is already for decades Marco’s passion. His belief is that with more professional project management, projects and programmes can be managed in a more predicable and more successful way, leading to higher customer satisfaction. By linking his knowledge and over 30 years of (project) management experience in The Netherlands and many countries abroad, as well as learning not only by himself but also through and from others, he has obtained a pretty good idea about what works and what doesn’t work in project management. In his role as project management consultant, trainer, coach and auditor he therefore supports organizations, project teams and individuals to do a better project management job.

Marco is next to his professional career with Balance and BPC from The Netherlands, part of the Dutch IPMA-board and chairman of the local IPMA interest group on project planning and control. He is also author of a number of project management handbooks for industrial organizations and published and presented papers on project management related issues throughout the world.
