National Audit Office director Tim Banfield feels that project managers should look at the outcome they are trying to achieve and ensure they produce benefit instead of just delivering on time, cost and quality.

During an interview at the APM Project Management Conference in October Tim said: “Project managers tend to think about success in their own terms, not in the terms of the people who have got to use what they produce.”

Watch the full interview where Tim mentions that project managers should get to a point of “no regrets” which may lead to the project being more successful.

Tim spoke at the APM's annual conference, which has more than a half a decade of agenda setting content, along with other key influential figures. Keep an eye on the APM website where there will soon be exciting announcements about the new-look APM Project Management Conference 2012.
