Making the mould: transform, diversify, revolutionise
Building on a long history of award winning conferences, APM is pleased to announce the launch of its 2017 Project Management Conference which is to be held at London’s Barbican Centre, one of Europe’s largest performing arts centres, on Thursday 27 April.
The conference will look at new challenges the profession must overcome in order for well-trained and competent project managers to effectively deliver successful change.
Project professionals are required to adapt and operate across new industries and sectors on increasingly complex projects, while still delivering projects to the traditional restraints of time, cost and quality.
Sue Kershaw, APM board member and conference chair explains, “Our APM conference, Making the Mould: transform, diversify, revolutionise is all about creating the project management of the future, and is a showcase of how our profession is raising the bar to meet the challenges of economic regeneration, climate change, security, technology, innovation and globalisation. This will influence how we can best manage complexity in a rapidly changing environment.”
Featuring a wide range of speakers from across the industry, the APM Project Management Conference 2017 will leave no assumption unchallenged, providing an insight into the future of our profession; the people, the practices and the projects and how they will transform the world we live in and the way we work.
The line-up of speakers include Sir William Atkinson, acclaimed as Britain’s most successful head teacher, who successfully turned around ‘the worst school in the country’; Christian Bason, Head of the Danish Design Centre; and Ledia Andrawes, Programs Director at Think Place.
