Business LinkThe APM has just completed its annual review of the project management material on the Business Link website, the government's online resource for businesses.

The associations relationship with Business Link began last year when it was approached to be a Proxy Approver for the project management content contained on the site. The annual review of the material has just taken place and the association was delighted to sign it off as accurate and acceptable.

Business Link is an essential business service run by HM Revenue and Customs and contains information, support and services for all types of businesses from large established organisations to starts ups.

Liz Wilson, APM head of professional standards and knowledge said: Business Link has nearly 20 years experience providing advice to all types of business. Were delighted to be able to offer our knowledge and experience in project, programme and portfolio management to such an essential public resource."

The project management section provides a checklist to consider when planning and delivering a project. It takes the user through start-up and initiation, organisation, planning and review, and project closure and offers useful advice on how effective project management can contribute directly to business success.

The contribution to Business Links project management resources follows the recent announcement that APM has been accepted into membership of the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (DBIS), Gateways to the Professions Collaborative Forum.
