Understanding the underlying elements of programme management as well as the benefits of managing risk are just two of the many topics that will be covered at APMs first project fundamentals event taking place in London on 16th Oct.
The session called Joining the dots programme management in action aims to help participants understand the underlying elements of programme management, as well as their transitions from project to programme management.
An additional complementary session will be run by APM Risk Management SIG chairman Peter Campbell, covering not only the basics of implementing risk management but also highlighting the importance of determining and managing risk exposure including its benefits.
On his view on risk management Peter said: I have a strong view that risk management should demonstrate benefits and not be viewed as simply something which has to be done to meet governance requirements.
APM Presents will feature senior speakers from APMs Specific Interest Groups and is proving to be a very popular event. Book now to avoid disappointment.

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.
