Posted by APM on 16th Sep 2014

I am the founder and Director of the National Centre for Project Management and Professor of Project Management at the University of Hertfordshire.

Having built a reputation as leader and innovator in practice-based education and reflection, I have worked with many major industrial, commercial and charitable organisations and government bodies. I am active in numerous international committees, standards bodies and editorial boards and in organising international conferences.

In 2008 I was named by the APM as one of the top 10 influential experts in project management and voted Project Magazines Academic of the Year for contributions in integrating and weaving academic work with practice. I have edited twenty books and written over 200 refereed papers and book chapters on project management and software engineering. I am the editor of the Advances in Project Management book series, which synthesises leading edge knowledge, and of a companion series, Fundamentals of Project Management, providing essential grounding in key areas of project management.

I chaired the APM Project Management Conference for five years, setting consecutive attendance records and bringing together the most influential speakers and have been awarded an Honorary Fellowship by APM for outstanding contribution to the profession.

My mission is to foster interactive dialogue about the integration of successful practice with theoretical research in the management of projects. Having worked with many practitioners, I would like to continue to bridge the interface between academia and practice, develop research awareness in professionals and establish APM as the contemporary think-tank for grounded project thinking.
