At the heart of project management is the ability to plan the project and control progress against the plan. This 1 day seminar was organised with the Planning, Monitoring and Control (PMC) SIG (specific interest group), and took a fascinating look at the theory and practice of planning and control.

Starting with our key note speaker Geoff Reiss who looked at portfolios, programmes and projects, other experts then discussed a range of topics, covering both latest thinking, theory and practice. The seminar presented an exciting opportunity to delegates to expand their knowledge and understanding of planning and control.

Presentations from the seminar can be found below:

Geoff Reiss - "Portfolios, programmes and projects. Delivering one version of the truth: a case study"


Carolyn Limbert - "Complex project management"


Andrew Langridge - "Cost estimating and risk in complex projects"


Stephen Jones - "Earned value and agile"


David Insley, BMTHiQSigma - "Delivering urgent projects - management and system engineering challenges"


Gary Palmer - "An introduction to critical chain project management"

    Stephen,Really enjoyed your presentation on the day, and thought it very valuable content. Unfortunately my notes didn't keep pace, and I am now stuck trying to parse your slides for formula. I would very much appreciate the algorithm for the final three columns (% remaining, Progress this Month and Total % Complete) for slides 17 & 18 (increasing and decreasing backlog).You can reach me direct at:kevin.bostick (at)

    Firstly, thank you to all concerned for sharing the output from a fascinating seminar.  It is also great to see Geoff Reiss as the keynote.  Well done Geoff obo all your fellow committee members from ProgM.A laser like vision and  a focus on delivery is particularly important when delivering programmes and projects in the current era of austerity.  My experience of PPM delivery in the public sector is that far too much emphaisis is placed on reporting to tiers of management, often outside of PPM governance.   Gareth Morgan's analogy of driving by watching the rear view mirror is very adpt.Hopefully we can continue the theme of improved delivery at ProgM's annual conference on 26th November which is themed 'delivering more for less': linked to the Conference is our Major Collaboration Survey which I (obo ProgM) invite you all to complete on line: intention is to publish the results in a white paper in 2014.ThanksJim (ProgM Secretary)
