Download City AM's first project management report
Posted by APM on 24th Oct 2013
London business newspaper City A.M. published their first report on project management yesterday. If you didn't manage to get hold of the 12-page special supplement, don't worry – you can read it online or download a PDF version.
APM editorial and branding featured in the report, which reached 275,000 readers throughout London and the Home Counties.
The report featured current trends in project management highlighting the importance of having well trained and qualified project managers. By focusing on training and development the report hopes to move away from project managers “accidentally” falling into project management as a career.
The report goes on to explain how APM have created a new pathway into the profession with the recent launch of the Higher Apprenticeship in Project Management. The scheme, co-created with Skills CFA, will embed vital project skills in organisations throughout England and Wales therefore raising the bar of project management professionalism.
The industry’s most prominent thought leaders featured in the report, with APM president Tom Taylor contributing to an expert panel.
This report follows on from APM featuring in two other special reports that were published in the national press. The Times published a report in July where APM chairman Mike Nichols explained the idea behind the association’s ambitious vision. Before that, APM supported the Daily Telegraph’s special project management edition of The Business Reporter that came out in April.
As originally seen in ‘Project Management' published by Mediaplanet on Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in City A.M.

How most projects are at the same time both wildly successful and spectacularly disappointing, and everything in between, depending on the point of view of different stakeholders.
Agile has a lot to offer the wider enterprise, and we could perhaps see a time when the whole of an organisation is run on agile principles. Since this will not be about projects or programmes, I believe the emphasis will be on behaviours and structures as opposed to processes and tools.
