Posted by APM on 16th Sep 2014

I have a keen interest in the development of project management, linked very much to its practical implementation.

I have always had an interest in evidence based research and its practical application. I have been a co-author on several papers and articles as part of a long term and continuing collaboration with Prof. David Bryde of Liverpool JM University.

I developed a lot of my project management skills working in animal health, but it was not until I joined Quintiles as a project manager that I had the chance to utilise these skill in larger and more complex projects. It was evident then that the use of project management skills and techniques was not very common in clinical research, and one of my achievements at Quintiles was to design and implement their first pricing model as well as introducing scheduling and resourcing tools.

Later as the head of clinical operations at CroMedica, I introduce Earned Value Management (EVM) and Project Risk Analysis and Management (PRAM). In the year 2000 I started my own limited company.

Joined APM in May 2003. Membership has enabled me to keep up to date with the latest developments in project management. I have been an active committee member of the Planning, Monitoring and Control SIG for several years.

My qualifications include Higher National Certificate in Chemisty, Licentiate of the Royal Institute of Chemistry (Biochemistry) and B.Sc. (Hons) Applied Biology (specialising in biochemistry). In the year 2000 I also obtained The Professional Certificate in Management (OU)

Agility to succeed

4 October 2016

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.

Are you banging the wall rather than beating the drum?

4 October 2016

You have a choice. You can either muddle on, stand firm and fix it – or look elsewhere.
