Project Spring issue: out now
Posted by Laura on 1st Mar 2017
APM’s Royal Charter, Swiss super-project the Gotthard Base Tunnel, design thinking in projects – whatever your interest, there’s a lot going on in the latest Project journal.
Published today, the spring issue of APM’s quarterly journal includes articles, news and opinion from around the project management community. Project is distributed free to all APM members. It has a readership of over 22,000 members.
Alongside the regular sections – news, comment, insight – the lead story features reaction from leading figures in APM and the wider industry to news of the APM’s Chartered status.
“The Royal Charter brings welcome status and recognition,” said APM president David Waboso, “an exciting time for the profession”, added APM chairman John McGlynn.
There’s also news on the next steps now that APM is chartered.
Providing the wow factor, is a drill down into the numbers of the Gotthard project, the longest tunnel ever built for passengers and freight. At 57km long, the tunnel under the Swiss Alps is going to take some beating.
Christian Bason, from the Danish Design Centre, shares his passion for design thinking to achieve the best possible outcome. Bason’s advice is to “start by spending time with the end user”, a message he is bound to explore at this year’s APM Conference, where he’s confirmed to speak.
Project journal is aimed at anyone with a professional interest in project management, from entry level through to experienced practitioner. APM members can access the Project archive by logging onto the member area of the website.

Agile refuses to analyse requirements beforehand – and thus declines to provide an initial certainty. This will probably always scare any stakeholder trying to understand whether or not they can show results to the board with the budget that they are granted.
You have a choice. You can either muddle on, stand firm and fix it – or look elsewhere.
