On the 28th of September over 60 APM members and their guests gathered at the offices of Bovis Lend Lease in London to hear APM Board member Mary McKinlay deliver a talk on the subject of project complexity.
The session looked at the early days of project management, the development of methods and techniques and went on to look at the characteristics of complex projects in todays world.
Mary finished the evening by suggesting some required characteristics for today's project professionals and some further reading.
Her final thought was from Victor Hugo - "There is nothing on earth more powerful than an idea whose time has come". Mary suggested that for project management that time is now.
