About ASEAN Project Manager’s Center of Excellence (APMX)

By way of Strategic Alliances with Universities, recognized individuals, subject matter experts and established vendors of asset, portfolio, program or project Management tools, we are able to provide professional services anywhere in the world.

Because all our trainers/mentors are independent contractors, we are able to react swiftly to any need or challenge our customers may face. To achieve this end, we have developed standardized yet flexible project delivery processes consistent with all capability maturity models, while implementing these methodologies using local people in deference to regional cultural, religious and social sensitivities.
