Welcome to the APM Scotland Branch community.
Scotland Branch deliver a programme of activities aligned to the APM 2020 Strategy. Using the 27 competences from the APM Competence Framework as a guide our programme aims to be diverse, inclusive and of interest to the full spectrum of our membership from Student/Entry-level through practitioner and up to Director/CxO level.
Where we can we focus our events on experience and lessons from key projects of Scottish interest, such as the construction of the Queensferry Crossing, Naval Ship Building on both the Clyde and the Forth, Edinburgh Zoo’s Giant Panda Programme or the development of world leading digital platforms.
We work closely with Scottish Government, our Corporate Partners, Members, Affiliates and Higher Education Institutions to ensure we understand their needs and how we can work together for the benefit of all of our members and the wider project profession within Scotland.
Our prestigious annual Project Challenge Competition provides development opportunities for newcomers to the profession whether from Corporates or HEIs, and we are actively looking at opportunities to further develop and enhance our activities in this area.
Our membership is widely dispersed, stretching from Dumfries and Galashiels in the south, to Wick in the north, any beyond when you factor in our members in the Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland Islands. Our principal concentration of members is focused on the principal cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow & Aberdeen and are drawn from a diverse background, including the Public & 3rd Sectors, Digital & ICT, Defence, Civil & Construction, Transportation & Aerospace, Energy & Utilities, Financial Services, Manufacturing and Retail.
Our challenge is to meet the professional project, programme & portfolio management needs of this diverse and geographically distributed population. We have been growing and now have over 1600 individual members across the membership grades. We also have over 50 Corporates with head offices in Scotland, and some 360 plus based outside Scotland with one or more offices in Scotland.
To provide ample coverage branch activities are led by a network of action groups focusing on either a region or a specific activity.
