Posted by APM on 17th May 2010

On Tuesday 16th of March 2010 the APM South Wales and West of England Branch in partnership with the APM People Specific Interest Group held an event entitled People: The key to project success in Bristol.

This highly interactive one day seminar examined how people are at the heart of project management and successful project delivery. A project can have perfectly defined processes, procedures, tools, techniques, but these on their own deliver nothing; the people on the project deliver the outputs that in turn deliver the all important benefits.

Presentations were made by;

Donnie MacNicol, Chairman of the APM People SIG,
Trevor Band, APM Board Member
Rob Sadler, Transport for London
Brenda Hales, Team Animation

In a presentation hosted by the SWWE Branch, Julian Harris demonstrated the importance of clarity in communications in preventing accidents. Starting with the ‘Swiss Cheese’ model, it was explained that accidents are rarely the result of one failure; they tend to follow a chain of events. Identifying potential hazards can allow suitable and sufficient safeguards to be implemented to reduce the possibility of an event leading to an accident. Emergency arrangements can also be put in place to recover a situation, should an accident occur. However Julian observed that the weakest link in any system was probably the human interface.
