Project autumn issue out today
Posted by Annie Tolputt on 24th Aug 2017
It’s all change in the latest issue of Project journal – mailed out to APM members today – which features a special report on change management.
Together with an exclusive interview with best-selling author and change management guru Dr John Kotter, there are case studies on organisational change from TFL and Royal Mail, plus tips on the key factors for success from by APM’s Enabling Change SIG.
In addition A practitioner’s guide to benefits management by Neil White and Rebecca Casey explains how successful change outcomes are enabled through the effective application of benefits management. Readers can download a full version of the ‘Benefits management life cycle’.
We also hear from Professor Peter Morris, who challenges the profession to take urgent action against the causes of climate change – the full report Climate Change and What the Project Management Profession Should Be Doing About It published by APM and UCL is out next month.
Finally Project addresses a factor that affects us all; the weather. What can you do to mitigate bad conditions and other factors which can delay your project and what strategies are available when the heavens open?
