The Governance SIG's latest evening event saw the SIG collaborate once more with APM Corporate Member Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC).
- What is the Board's role in governance and do they follow good practice?
- What does good look like?
- Are there good practice guidelines available?
- And in particular how can you influence your board to adopt good practice in governance of project management?
These are some of the questions that were answered at this session.
This was one of a series of sessions that the Governance SIG is presenting to enable good practice to be shared. The next event in the series being our autumn conference being held on 1st October in London "Achieving change successfully - why good governance matters"
Poor governance of projects and project management is a major cause of project failure. Recent research (by both PwC and APM) has shown a direct correlation between organisational and project success and good governance. So good governance is the key success factor in delivering successful project outcomes. Shouldn't Boards take note and make improvement of governance a strategic objective?
