The Association for Project Management (APM) has joined the Academy of Social Sciences, the national academy of academics, learned societies and practitioners in the social sciences.

APM becomes the 42nd Learned Society in membership of the Academy. These 42 societies work together to help tackle major issues facing society today.

Speaking about the new Academy member, Chair of the Academy’s Council, Professor Roger Goodman FAcSS, said:

“APM is renowned as a leader in project management, committed to raising standards in the profession and facilitating effective career development. It includes many skilled professionals who work to improve how people interact and collaborate across increasingly demanding social contexts.

It is the Academy’s role to bring together researchers, practitioners, policy makers and the general public and promote dialogue, so that the evidence from the social sciences can be better understood and acted upon. The Academy will be able to do this even more effectively with the benefit of APM in membership.”

Commenting on their membership, David Waboso, President of APM, said:

“Project management is key to delivering beneficial change in today’s society. As members of the Academy, APM will work with other social scientists to improve the project profession and enhance its public benefit. We see huge potential in co-operating in areas such as psychology, behavioural economics, leadership and organisational change, to mention just a few, because projects are delivered and influenced by people.”

Agility to succeed

4 October 2016

Agile refuses to analyse requirements beforehand – and thus declines to provide an initial certainty. This will probably always scare any stakeholder trying to understand whether or not they can show results to the board with the budget that they are granted.

You have a choice. You can either muddle on, stand firm and fix it – or look elsewhere.
