Shell reaches RPP milestone
Posted by APM on 20th Jul 2015
Shell has publicly demonstrated their commitment to raising the bar of project management professionalism as they now have over 50 staff who achieved the APM Registered Project Professional (RPP) status.
55 employees achieved the pan-sector standard through the Shell Project Academy (SPA) as part of the wave programme the petrochemical giant implemented in 2012 and delivered in conjunction with APM.
This is a two-stage process assessed by project management peers, some of whom are pictured on a recent visit to Shell’s Projects and Technology headquarters in Rijswijk, the Netherlands.
The Shell Project Academy, awarded APM Corporate Accreditation in 2010, is at the heart of their drive to build a competent project management community, with RPP at the pinnacle.
Shell’s global discipline head for project management Nick Smallwood said: “Professionalism and competence are the foundation on which our approach to world class project delivery is built and so it is extremely rewarding and important that we have reached this milestone with APM.
“We believe that this external recognition for our most senior project managers is important not only to Shell but also to our many business partners with whom we work in joint venture project developments.”
