What now for project management? That’s the question being asked at the APM Project Management Conference 2013.
The conference, called simply Adapt! reflects on 2012 as the coming of age year for project management and asks; what now? Last year the profession saw the successful delivery of the London 2012 Olympic Games; the completion of Europe’s tallest building, the Shard; the successful testing of Europe’s largest hybrid for the world’s first 1000mph car, Bloodhound; the start of tunnelling for Crossrail; introduction of the 4G telecommunication network in the UK; and completion of the TV Digital switchover programme. All significant projects, with a global impact, delivered largely by British project professionals.
And so to 2013; what now? The APM Project Management Conference 2013 will call on the profession to adapt its thinking to address the growing expectations of society. A society that has a growing intolerance to failure and that expects a world in which all projects succeed.
Adapt! will focus on themes of flexibility, resilience and evolution. Themes that reflect the new benchmarks that 2012 set, the growing demands of customers and the “more for less” culture which is challenging how we think and act.
The programme, created again by conference chairman Professor Darren Dalcher, will build on the conference’s reputation for attracting some of the world’s most influential and thought provoking speakers including Sir Peter Gershon, Eddie Obeng, Edward Hoffman, Richard Noble OBE and Jeremy Beeton.
The event this year moves to the award winning King’s Place Conference Centre, the home of the Guardian newspaper and Network Rail and within walking distance of London’s King’s Cross Station. Building on the success of 2012, where 94% of attendees said they would look to attend in 2013 and with delegates describing the conference as “a source of inspiration, innovation and new ideas”, it will feature an expanded capacity exhibition.
