Project Management: It’s all Bo***cks!

Copthorne Hotel Newcastle, The Close, Quayside, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 3RT

Welcome to the world of project management, where we will all pick over the sadly inadequate body of knowledge that is project management today, and generally challenge just about everything, eliminating that which you don't need to bother to learn about, or should already know, leaving you only with the parts that will give you the results you want.
The project management profession continues to grow and mature, but is at risk of excluding those who don’t fit the mould. There is a mystique out there that 'only certificated project managers can be project managers'.

This is nonsense. The project management skill set is accessible to anyone, and how you choose to access it and put it to use should remain the decision of the individual. There shouldn’t be a right or wrong choice.

This presentation, and the associated book, is targeted at those ‘projects as usual project managers’ who will drive most of the change inside organisations tomorrow and beyond, and who really need help to do that. 

We will offer up a selection of seven cracking ideas, that when applied to a project environment will ultimately result in you being a good manager of projects in this modern world of business complexity.

Peter Taylor is experienced a Change and Transformation Specialist, who has operated at a global scale within many industries, for organisations ranging from small to enterprise.

He is also the author of the number 1 bestselling project management book ‘The Lazy Project Manager’, along with many other books on Project Management, PMO development, Executive Sponsorship, Transformation Leadership, and Speaking Skills.

Peter has delivered over 380 lectures around the world in over 25 countries, and has been described as ‘perhaps the most entertaining and inspiring speaker in the project management world today’.

Previous presentations and webinars can be viewed on the APM Slideshare and YouTube channels. Follow @APMEvents for upcoming event information.
