RPP is "lifting project and programme management to its highest level" [Video]
Posted by APM on 11th Aug 2011
APM created a new pan-sector designation with the aim of raising the standard for the project management profession. Julian Foster, Programme Director at BAA Heathrow (pictured right), shares that view as he believes APM Registered Project Professional (RPP) is “lifting project and programme management to its highest level.”
Julian was interviewed for APM’s latest video, RPP – The Professionals’ Perspective, along with three other project management peers. Julian outlines the importance of RPP, not only as a way of developing the career paths of his staff, but by providing a “consistent approach to programme management throughout the whole of the supply chain.” Julian provides an authoritative voice and an unbiased opinion as he hasn’t gained the designation himself, but fully advocates RPP by recognising the vital role it plays in raising the standard for the profession.
The video also features professionals who have been through the process and successfully gained RPP, which will become a Chartered standard at the end of APM's well-supported journey to obtaining a Royal Charter. Alan Macklin CBE, David Coombes and Danny Trup offer up some valuable insight into the process, which may help potential candidates to determine if RPP is right for them.
Alan Macklin CBE, Business Development Director at CH2M HILL, is among the first few to gain admittance to APM’s Register of Project Professionals and feels that RPP “gives that mark of professionalism.”

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.
