Candidate biography - Brian Wernham
Posted by APM on 15th Sep 2013
I have ideas and get things done. Consensus for action is built by listening, learning, contributing and communicating with others.
I am proud to be an active APM Member.
There are green-shoots of recovery in the economy. Now is the time to grow the APM into being the voice of the profession by:
- Working towards a vigorous expansion of individual Memberships - this is how Chartered Status will be attained
- Extending to a diverse Membership geographic diversity, industry diversity, age diversity, gender diversity, ethnic diversity and more
- Increasing the role of Branches in engagement with Individual and Corporate Members and Academics to develop this vision
- Empowering SIGs to generate debate, create a coherent body of knowledge, link with other professional bodies and drive the creation of world-class qualifications
- Agreeing Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound (S.M.A.R.T.) objectives for the above.
Every Member is an active Member, progressing up a career escalator each setting their sights on self-discovery and growth, and paying back by mentoring and helping those starting out on their journey.
I deliver projects by agreeing simple, targeted objectives, encouraging open behaviours, building personal relationships and communicating. Recently interviewed live on primetime Radio 4 and BBC TV, international keynote speaker, author and blogger, I will help the APM do more to communicate clearly and establish its voice in the mass media through effective PR.
34 years of practical business experience in engineering, transport, construction, finance and IT business change and RPP FAPM FBCS CEng MBA BSc.

Agile refuses to analyse requirements beforehand – and thus declines to provide an initial certainty. This will probably always scare any stakeholder trying to understand whether or not they can show results to the board with the budget that they are granted.
You have a choice. You can either muddle on, stand firm and fix it – or look elsewhere.
