Meet the IBR authors at eVa21
Posted by APM on 5th May 2016
A leading advocate of APM's latest project controls publication, A Guide to conducting Integrated Baseline Reviews (IBR), will appear at the upcoming #eVa21 conference.
Tim Banfield, director of strategy for the Infrastructure and Projects Authority, who wrote the foreword to the guide, will appear alongside the authors from APM's Planning, Monitoring and Control Specific Interest Group.
The event, hosted and sponsored by APM corporate member Deltek, will feature a drinks reception followed by an opportunity to meet with the authors, who will be more than willing to sign your copy of the IBR guide.
Geraldine Barker, director of the national audit office, is also scheduled to appear.
The IBR guide describes the process of performing a technical and schedule review to establish a balanced understanding of the planning maturity of the project. Covering topics including:
- the project management plan;
- the methods and metrics used to measure contract performance or progress;
- the management control processes that operate during the project’s execution;
- the technical merits of the schedule;
- the risk associated with the baseline.
- based on tried and tested techniques developed by the military, it is applicable to projects of all sizes in all industry sectors.
Summing up the benefits, Tim Banfield wrote: “The book guides the reader through the review process, suggesting what the review should be looking for, and how the output should be used not only to improve the project under review, but rather how outputs can be collated to prevent common issues from re-occurring.”
