APM Scotland branch 7th Project Management Challenge competition
Posted by Colin Baker on 23rd Aug 2017
The APM Scottish Branch is committed to delivering excellent professional learning benefits targeted at future PMs in the project management profession. Over the past 6 years the APM Scottish Branch has delivered this commitment through its very successful event, the “Scottish Project Management Challenge” Competition (SPMC).
The SPMC is a unique opportunity for organisations including Higher Education Institutes to compete head to head in delivering a project of their choosing and to be crowned the best project management team in Scotland whilst raising money for their nominated charity. Over the years the teams that have taken part in the SPMC have raised over £39,000 for local charities while providing valuable experience to their teams. The APM Scottish Branch provides experienced APM mentors who assess their progress and reports through the competition leading up to the finals night where the successful teams present to a wide audience and to an esteemed panel of judges.
The positive feedback the branch has received from competing teams is how much they have learnt through this competition, the contacts they met both internally and externally and the opportunity to compete against their peers with the winning team crowned as the Winners of the Scottish Project Management Challenge….So What are you waiting for!!”
