The Project round table, which was covered in last months Project magazine, has helped to further highlight an on-going debate.

The event saw professionals, academics and consultants come together to discuss the APM vision of a world in which all projects succeed an aspiration that many have an opinion on. Since then, people have been going online to have their say in a specially created forum thread. Log on to tinyurl.com/Project-2020 to have your say.

Recent content has helped to ignite other discussions namely IT Project expert Brian Wernhams Incremental IT feature [Project October], which looked at the Governments Universal Credit programme.

This month we look at the scheme from a different angle, through the eyes of Ruth Murray-Webster, director of Lucidus Consulting, who believes the transformational change programme will bring about incremental benefits to the advantage of the nation.

Ruth is calling for a more nuanced consideration of major transformation change.

So what is my point? Its that discussion and debate is crucial to move things forward in project, programme and portfolio management.

The two examples above serve to highlight the fact that we are blessed with an abundance of experienced and knowledgeable professionals here in the UK. Listening and absorbing what these practitioners have to say can be the difference between success and failure. Whats more, your input can improve delivery for other professionals. What we try to do through the pages of Project is share success stories and show how people are innovating to overcome challenges. This kind of knowledge transfer will play a huge part if we are ever to get to a world in which all projects succeed.
