Candidate biography - Susie Boyce
Posted by APM on 17th Sep 2013
I am seeking election to the APM board in response to requests from apm board members to enable me to continue to contribute to the apm community. My first program director introduced me to the apm when I was a fledgling project manager. I benefit from membership and therefore now wish to contribute. I have served for 8 years as a Committee Member of the Association of Project Management Specific Interest Group Women in Project Management and held the post of joint co chair for 2 years.
I started my career as a scientist having gained a BSc Science (physiology) from the Polytechnic of Central London (now University of Westminster). I worked first in the National Health Service at The Royal Brompton National Heart and Lung Hospital and subsequently as Deputy Clinical Physiologist at Harefield Hospital.
I joined the Pharmaceutical Industry in 1993, subsequently progressed to Project Management. I have over 16 years experience in managing and delivering successfully large complex global programs with multi disciplinary teams requiring integration of customers, contractors, academics and patients. I am currently Director, Clinical Project Management with a global company with responsibility for overseeing projects across the globe.

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.
