APM Planning, Monitoring and Control Specific Interest Group (SIG)

The generic area of operation is project control, focusing on the techniques and processes listed as well as interfaces to other subject areas, e.g. risk, governance, programme and portfolio management.

Beyond the toolset there is an interest in the behavioural aspects of management and how this affects implementation and leadership within these areas.
