APM Women in Project Management Specific Interest Group

Women in project management Project management relies on good leadership and team working which can be enhanced by promoting individual strengths. Much has been said about the potential for improvements in organisational practices to be found in examining the differences in management styles between men and women, whilst little has been done to develop organisational processes needed to realise this potential.

The future relies on changes in working practices, involving both men and women.
