Case study - BAE Systems

APM Corporate Accreditation case study

BAE Systems works right at the cutting edge of technology to develop, deliver and support advanced defence security and aerospace systems across the world. Its success depends entirely on effective project delivery. It is the world’s second largest global defence company with major operations across five continents and with customers and partners in more than 100 countries. More than 7,000 of its 100,000 employees are professional project managers working on some 5,000 projects at any one time.

This multi-billion pound business needs highly capable people using world-class processes to successfully manage and deliver complex projects to meet the exacting requirements of its customers. For this reason, BAE Systems is committed to high performance project management sponsored at board level, championed through its Corporate Project Management Council and implemented through a comprehensive set of policies and processes that are consistent across its global business.

BAE Systems takes a whole lifecycle approach to project management, from development to delivery and beyond. The lifecycle management framework is a core business process and provides a ‘fit-for-purpose’ approach for project management throughout the company.
