Posted by APM on 8th Aug 2013

Conference: ZeroPentacle Virtual Business School is hosting a revolutionary online conference with the aim of supporting the APM vision of a world in which all projects succeed.

Conference: Zero, a completely virtual conference and the first such event APM has been involved with, will take place on Thursday 17th October from 7am to 7pm GMT, so it is accessible to multiple time zones.

Engaging, participative and lively, this innovative conference will enable project and programme managers globally to hear from experts, discuss key issues and more fully understand critical approaches and behaviours.

Whether it is zero defects in car manufacturing or zero accidents in construction all projects should share the same absolute determination to succeed and have an intolerance of failure. If you have that, then the likelihood is that projects will be successful.

The five project themes covered will be:

  • Purpose understanding and getting the metrics right
  • Performance Indicators clarifying exactly what you need to get right
  • Perspective & Incidents learning from the past and continuing to learn in the future
  • Practitioner Insight ensuring you have the right hard and soft skills
  • Performance & Implications Mentoring connecting the organisation, stakeholders and programme to project activities

More than 30 speakers will explore these issues, with five keynotes including Professor Eddie Obeng, School of Entrepreneurship & Innovation, Henley Business School and learning director at Pentacle.

Professor Eddie ObengEddie, who spoke at the APM Conference in 2011, said: This conference takes place in the collaborative virtual learning environment QUBE.

"This is a natural environment so, rather than using text or restricting talk, everyone can speak to everyone else.

With the conference running for 12 hours, people can join the sessions that interest them at a time that suits.

Other keynote speakers will include senior hands-on practitioners representing board-level and project expertise from leading brands involved in global sporting events, digital broadcasting, banking and academia.
