Posted by APM on 27th Aug 2015

Continuing our drive to bring you the most innovative and inspirational leaders from your profession, we are pleased to announce four new senior professionals to the APM Scottish Conference speaker line-up, sponsored by 20|20 Business Insight.

On Thursday 10th September, programme director Brian Wernham, consultant Adrian Pyne and learning & development strategist Ann Halloran will be leading a workshop focusing on Agile.

In this workshop, co-authors of the new ‘Agile Governance’ guide Brian and Adrian will join Ann in an attempt to answer the questions that have been raised in previous presentations from their “2015 Agile roadshow”. 

Through a plenary session, they will be covering questions around the value of being agile at projects, whilst also discussing the myths that surround it and what its governance looks like through the use of exercises and multi-media.

As we continue our focus on the importance of leadership, our fourth speaker, international project management consultant Roger Joby, will be conducting a breakout session covering questions on what makes a good leader, the difference between leading and managing and many other aspects around this topic.

With over 40 years' experience principally in the pharmaceutical sector, Roger is also involved in academic research and has published papers and written articles on the application of earned value management (EVM) in clinical research with colleagues at Liverpool John Moores University. He specialises in customising project management tools like EVM, Risk Analysis, etc. to suit his client specific needs in the highly uncertain world of drug development.
