Posted by APM on 25th Jan 2013
The APM is delighted to announce that QinetiQ Ltd has recently gained APM Corporate Accreditation for its Fit 4 Growth Programme/QinetiQ Project Management Academy. This is a great achievement as it allows QinetiQ to demonstrate to their customers, suppliers and employees that they are committed to the highest standards of project management and professional development.
A FTSE250 company, QinetiQ uses its domain knowledge to provide technical support and know-how to customers in the global aerospace, defence and security markets. QinetiQ's unique position enables it to be a trusted partner to government organisations, predominantly in the UK and the US, including defence departments, intelligence services and security agencies.
When asked what gaining Corporate Accreditation meant to the company, Alan Horden (pictured) Project Management Leadership Chair at QinetiQ, said We are delighted that QinetiQ have been elevated to the level of APM Corporate Accreditation. It clearly demonstrates external recognition of our professionalism in our Project Management community and we will be building on this in the near future. The capability of QinetiQs Project Managers is valued and respected by our customers, and this endorsement of our processes and standards by the APM has served to acknowledge and independently endorse the commitment we are placing on raising the bar on PM capability and professional development.
