Posted by APM on 14th Sep 2013

Christine graduated from King's College, London with a science degree followed by scientific research at Imperial College, London before moving into IT development. She has been a project manager since 1999 originally managing IT projects. In particular  infrastructure rollouts and software implementations,  and now managing portfolios of projects and programmes on an interim basis.

Christine was an APM Committee member from 2008 to 2010 of the APM Swindon (Thames Valley Chapter) and organised events to widen knowledge and expertise in project management.
Christine is passionate about the value project management experience brings together with a structured approach in understanding the essential tasks to deliver a successful project.

Quoting from a recent Raconteur article on Project Management in The Times by the journalist Dan Matthews "Project management quietly rules the world".

She believes this demonstrates how project management is perceived as an essential requirement for the successful delivery of change which is constantly experienced in our world today. Even by those outside the occupation.

For our profession to succeed, it is vital that project managers have the professional project management discipline. This needs to be paramount above any other discipline. It is demonstrated  by the individual membership of the APM and ongoing experience in project delivery. It is a profession where experience is critical in identifying and reducing the risks and uncertainty associated with project delivery.

The APM needs to lead by example in establishing this professionalism, the value of experience and the ongoing  commitment to project success.
