Governance Unseen or Obscene


An APM Governance SIG virtual meet up

Many Sponsors work hard creating well defined governance process, policy and structures in order to drive better outcomes in projects and programmes.

Good governance structures also account for both escalation at appropriate times and anticipate that the extraordinary can and may happen. Effective governance takes account of the appropriate level of scrutiny, seniority and resource. Despite this ability to create governance that is purposeful and structured a Sponsor can at times find that decisions are being proposed, discussed and agreed outside of these arrangements. The formal meetings can become for ratification of decisions that have already happened within the circles in a business or group where the power lies.

This session will examine what unseen or obscene governance looks like in specific project environments.

Are you a project management professional with a focus on governance and looking to engage with similar professionals?

APM Governance SIG volunteer and former committee member Carol will be leading this meet up, giving participants the chance to interact with each other and swap experiences. This conversation will provide an opportunity to socialise virtually and is a great way to network with governance professionals.

There is a limit on the number places available due to the format of the event (virtual) and ideally open to those with a governance focus.

This conversation evening is suitable for professionals with any level of experience.
