The conference theme of Adapt! will reflect on 2012 as the coming of age year for project management and asks; what now? The APM Conference will call on the profession to adapt its thinking to address the growing expectations of society. A society with a growing intolerance to failure and that expects a world in which all projects succeed.
Adapt! will focus on flexibility, resilience and evolution. Topics that reflect the new benchmarks that 2012 set, the growing demands of customers and the more for less culture which is challenging how we think and act.
