Leaders from the APM community are set to take to the stage at the highly acclaimed Project Challenge expo 2016 held in London later this year.

The expo provides the perfect platform for project managers to network with likeminded project professionals, talk to a wide range of exhibitors and learn the latest industry skills and insights from up to 40 seminars across two days.

Vince Hines, managing director of Wellingtone Project Management, will be taking to the stage to discuss findings from the 2016 APM Salary and Market Trends Survey 2016, supported by Wellingtone, the largest survey of project managers to date.  

Drawing on over 15 years of experience in best practice recruitment, Vince will give expert insight into the findings, lifting the lid on project management recruitment, contract rates and market confidence.

Also taking to the stage will be Jacobs UK's Breda Ryan and Network Rail's Mila Mazilu to talk about conducting Inegrated Baseline Reviews (IBR), based on APM's recently launched publication.

An integrated baseline review is the process of performing a technical and schedule review, in order to establish a balanced understanding of the project’s planning maturity.  An IBR will review the project management plan, the methods and metrics used to measure contract performance and progress, the management control processes operating during the project’s execution, the technical merits of the schedule, and finally the risks associated with the baseline.  Breda and Mila will explain the roles and responsibilities of those involved, the steps required before and after an IBR, as well as the preparation and execution of the review itself.

The day will also see Rod Baker – Director, Professional Project & Programme Management Limited and Terry Kent, – Project Planning & Control Trainer, Training Byte Size looking at the APM guidance for Project Planning and Control and the relationship with APMG and the subsequent accreditation that followed.

They will explore how the guidance will improve the quality of schedules and technical competence of team members. Rod has had first-hand direct experience in all key project roles, having started as a project planner himself, and developing a range of training courses in every aspect of Project Management. Terry can give a first-hand account of candidates who attended the course and went back into the business, using their knowledge from the guidance to improve all aspects of project delivery.

Thanks to a history of outstanding past expos, Project Challenge is now the UK’s leading independent show for projects, programmes, process and resources and is billed as “the best place to find out what’s on the horizon and find new project tools”
