Collaboration - what's in it for me?
This was a presentation given by People SIG Chair, Russel Jamieson and fellow committee member Eleri Evans to an audience of APM members and guests, as well as HMRC employees in Newcastle.
The People SIG (specific interest group) joined together with APM North East branch and APM corporate member HMRC to bring local members and guests an event on 18th May 2015 which provided an overview of the SIG's recently completed module on collaboration.
This module links collaboration with ‘negotiation’ and ‘teamwork’. For the latter it explores synergies within the team and inside the individual’s brain… following on from this, the module examines how to overcome resistance; especially when forming teams using a dozen ‘principles’ (success factors) backed up with tools and simple steps.
The presentation slides for the People SIG's 'collaboration' module can be viewed below:
Russel and Eleri also gave an overview of all the APM specific interest groups (SIGs); the Body of Knowledge areas which the SIGs cover as their interest and the kinds of activities they undertake.
Russel is also head of the APM Awards so this will be an opportunity to find out more about the recently launched 2015 APM Awards - deadline for entries is 1st July 2015. This year the awards have a new IT project of the year category.
