Vote to deliver the APM strategy: one week to go
Posted by Adam on 2nd Nov 2017
Play your part in Inspiring positive change – that was the message from APM chairman John McGlynn to voters in this year’s APM board elections.
With just over one week to go until voting closes on 10 November APM members (MAPM and FAPM) are strongly encouraged to have their say and choose the board trustees who will help deliver the APM strategy.
“Inspiring positive change is the title of the refreshed APM strategy. Now that APM is the Chartered body for the project profession, we have refocused our strategy to reflect not only our new status as a Chartered body but also to support our members to meet the challenges we face in today’s changing and complex world.” John said, explaining the motivation behind the new strategy.
“We recognise the challenges faced by the profession and in our capacity as a modern, professional body, we need to continue to adapt. We aim to provide the professional standards and framework to build a community of credible, capable and trusted project delivery professionals delivering effective change in all sectors to all stakeholders.”
The APM strategy was launched in July this year in support of the APM vision: A world in which all projects succeed with project management as a life skill for all.
The new vision is a response to the challenge of raising the profile of project management as a profession and establishing it as a desirable career of choice. It aims to reach out to different communities and generations and establish project management as a core skill for all.
The vision is supported by the APM mission and five key objectives:
- Chartered standard:Successfully position, develop and launch the Chartered standard to become the accepted benchmark standard for project professionals.
- Membership growth:Increase the public understanding of how project management drives successful project delivery. Accelerate the growth, diversity and global reach of APM’s membership by engaging with new sectors and communities.
- Knowledge and research:Further develop, with academic and corporate partner support, an innovative knowledge and research programme which adds value to the profession.
- Collaborate and engage:Accelerate the universal adoption of project management by people delivering change through collaboration and partnerships.
- Organisational innovation:Define and build APM as the model of a sustainable professional body for the 21st
All the candidate statements and answers to a series of pre-set questions are available to view online: www.ersvotes.com/apm2017. Voting is simple and can be done by post, online and SMS.
The timeline for the elections is as follows:
- Election closes – 10 November 2017
