Welcome to the APM Governance Specific Interest Group (SIG) community.
The SIG was established in 2003. The stated purpose of the SIG is to:
- be the UK focus for those interested in the governance of change/ project management;
- advance the understanding of governance of project management;
- contribute towards the development of good practice in the governance of change/project management;
- influence national and international standard-making authorities to improve their impact on the governance of project management;
- influence those responsible for the governance of project management to improve their practices;
- develop its members as ambassadors and exemplars of excellent governance of project management.
- the SIG has been extremely active and has published a series of well received guides (see below), and is also actively reaching out to board/senior executives of organisations, for example IOD, IIRC, as well as the APM membership, to influence them to adopt better governance practices.
